Deloitte called in for ITV probe

Deloitte is leading a review of ITV’s interactive programmes after viewers were overcharged when voting during the last X-Factor show

The firm will lead two reviews at ITV. First, it will check current
programmes to ensure viewers are not being overcharged, with ITV’s COO John
Creswell stating that he believes current programmes are compliant. Current
programmes have been suspended because of the audit, including Dancing on
Ice
. However, the show is expected to take place on Saturday following the
review.

Deloitte will also lead a retrospective audit of previous ITV shows that
offer viewers premium rate interactive services. ‘We’ve asked the auditors to
report back to us with some urgency,’ said Creswell. ‘We expect the review of
current programmes to be swift and thorough.’
