ITV is tweeting updates of The X Factor after some viewers experienced a blank screen during the programme's crucial moment.
ITV is bringing back a high-tech version of the clap-o-meter for a new singing show from the makers of the original version of the Emmy-winning Homeland.
Viewers use an online app to vote in real time on Rising Star with acts progressing to the next round only if they get 70% approval ratings.
The clap-o-meter, which measured audience approval by the amount of noise they made, featured in several TV shows including Opportunity Knocks.
Rising Star was devised by Israeli firm Keshet , which is behind shows including Prisoners Of War, which was remade in the US as Homeland.
ITV has won a current affairs International Emmy for its documentary “Banaz: An Honour Killing”, which chronicles the brutal honour killing of a young British Kurdish woman in suburban London by her own family.
The film reveals how 19-year-old Banaz Mahmod was threatened after falling in love with another man after walking out of an abusive forced marriage.
Her father and uncle were both jailed for life in 2007 for their roles in her murder and two cousins were eventually extradited from Iraq and jailed for carrying out her killing.
In 2006 Banaz predicted her own murder, and months later her strangled body was found in the garden of a house in Birmingham.
Birds of a Feather stars have been reunited as they begin filming the show's ITV comeback, due to be screened early 2014.
The show follows two sisters, Linda Robson and Pauline Quirke, and their man-eating neighbour, Lesley Joseph, as they share a home in the posh Essex town of Chigwell after their husbands are sent to prison.
The show was first launched 24 years ago, but was axed by the BBC back in 1998.
It is now being revived by ITV for a further run which has been written by the original creators Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.
ITV has been awarded Channel of the Year at this year's Edinburgh television festival in recognition of a strong period of programme that has included its Exposure documentary on Jimmy Savile and the hit drama series Broadchurch.
Earlier this month, it emerged that US network Fox will be remaking the critically acclaimed crime drama for Broadchurch for US audiences.

Like the UK programme, the US version will follow the death of a young boy found dead on a beach.
The shows creator Chris Chibnall will write the first episode and act as a executive producer on the show.
Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said the company were delighted to bring such a "riveting" drama to US audiences.
After the first series pulled in nearly 9 million viewers, a second series of the UK version is due in April.
