Channel 5 pulls show from air tonight in last-minute schedule shake-up | The Sun

CHANNEL 5 has pulled a show from air tonight in a last-minute schedule shake-up.

The broadcaster has made a major update to its programming for Thursday evening.

Motorhoming with Merton & Webster was originally scheduled for 7pm tonight.

However, as attention turns to the missing submersible that has gone missing during an expedition to see the wreck of the Titantic, Channel 5 have dropped the show.

Instead they will air a special live programme called Titanic Sub: Lost at Sea.

5News presenter Dan Walker will front the show which will bring viewers up to date on the last in the time-sensitive search.

Channel 5 confirms return of long-running show but with big change

It comes as frantic search teams have until just 12.08pm today to find and rescue the five crew members helplessly stranded on the Titanic sub.

But it's feared time may have run out to successfully locate the stricken vessel and winch it to safety before the sub's oxygen supply runs out.

OceanGate's sub, Titan, vanished less than two hours into its descent 12,500ft down to the Titanic wreckage on Sunday.

It failed to resurface that afternoon with just 96 hours of life support and five people on board, with its final "ping" to mothership Polar Prince placing the sub directly above the ruins.

The US Coast Guard has warned the oxygen supply is due to be exhausted at 12.08pm today – giving search teams an extremely narrow window to pull off an extraordinary rescue.

Sounds of banging detected underwater on Wednesday raised hopes of a last-gasp miracle as extra rescue ships rushed to join a last-ditch bid to find lost craft Titan in the Atlantic.

The late arrivals – carrying the world’s most advanced undersea search technology – provide the best hope of an incredible last-minute rescue as rescue teams race against the clock today.

US Coast Guard captain Jamie Frederick confirmed deep-sea noises had been heard which were being analysed by sonar experts to establish if they came from the 22ft craft.
