ITV Breakfast Broadcasting Limited (previously known as GMTV Limited) is the national ITV breakfast television licensee,[3] broadcasting in the United Kingdom. It became a wholly owned subsidiary of ITV plc in November 2009.[4] The breakfast license runs daily from 6:00 am – 9:25 am. On weekdays, Lorraine runs through the franchise end time of 9:25am, when ITV Breakfast hands over control to the ITV Network (consisting of ITV and STV).[5]

GMTV, as an on-screen brand name, ended on 3 September 2010, with the newly-rebranded ITV Breakfast launching new weekday breakfast programmes Daybreak and Lorraine on 6 September 2010. In March 2014, it was announced Daybreak had been axed amid poor ratings. The programme was replaced on Monday 28 April 2014 by Good Morning Britain, reprising the title of a previous ITV's early-morning programme. The Lorraine segment has not been affected by the changes.

At weekends, ITV Breakfast airs children's programming, a simulcast of the CITV channel.

The talk show Weekend was broadcast on Saturdays and Sundays at 8:30am until 2017 when it didn't return after the Christmas break. It was hosted by Aled Jones. Various other similar talk shows have aired in this slot, including Martin & Roman's Weekend Best!.

ITV Breakfast Broadcasting Limited is a subsidiary of ITV Broadcasting Limited. The shows broadcast are produced by ITV Studios Daytime, a subsidiary of ITV Studios.[6]
