ITV News today apologised for using footage of celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott during a report into Lenny Henry getting a knighthood.
The station’s Lunchtime News carried a montage from clips from Henry’s career – but halfway through it featured footage of the former Ready Steady Cook host performing at the Comedy Store.
