Lenny Henry ITV report shows Ainsley Harriott

ITV has apologised for showing footage of Ainsley Harriott during a segment about the actor Sir Lenny Henry being knighted by the Queen.

Sir Lenny, the co-founder of Comic Relief and a campaigner for diversity in British television, was recognised for his services to drama and charity during the ceremony at Windsor Castle.

ITV put together a package about the ceremony which moved between footage of Sir Lenny and archive footage.

But viewers were left confused when it suddenly switched from Sir Lenny to old footage of the celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott singing, prompting a number to tweet at the broadcaster and ask what was going on.
