BBC has pulled Bargain Hunt off air and replaced it with the news as concern grows for The Queen’s health.

The show is typically broadcasted weekdays on at 12:15pm to 13:00 on BBC but was removed to announce that Buckingham Palace had released a statement regarding the Queen.

The statement read: "Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision.

"The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral."

It was announced on BBC News that immediate members of the family have been informed and that Prince Charles is currently by his mothers side, while Prince William is now heading to Balmoral.

The Queen, 96, was forced to postpone her Privy Council meeting last night after she was advised by doctors to rest.

Concern grew for her majesty earlier in the week when she met with new Prime Minister Liz Truss and shook her hand, revealing her bruised wrist.

Upon hearing the news, Liz took to Twitter and penned: "The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime.

"My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time."

Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle halted a debate on energy bills in the House House of Commons to give MPs an update about the Queen's current state.

He said: "I know I speak on behalf of the entire House when I say that we send our best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and that she and the royal family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment."

"If there is anything else, we will update the House accordingly," he added.

Nicola Sturgeon also took to social media to address the news, writing: "All of us are feeling profoundly concerned at reports of Her Majesty’s health. My thoughts and wishes are with the Queen and all of the Royal Family at this time."

Meanwhile Labour leader Keir Starmer said: "Along with the rest of the country, I am deeply worried by the news from Buckingham Palace this afternoon.

"My thoughts are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time, and I join everyone across the United Kingdom in hoping for her recovery."
