  • Lily Allen pulled from Newsnight after controversial Grenfell Tower comments

SINGER Lily Allen has confirmed she was dropped from BBC's Newsnight after her controversial Channel 4 interview. "They have someone from the council coming on instead", Allen tweeted ahead of the show.

The pop star was axed from the BBC news programme just hours before she was due to appear on Thursday night, after sensationally claiming that she believed 150 people in the tragedy.

"If we are talking about bringing reality into these people's lives, I think what people would really like is a more honest count of how many people have actually died in this event, how many people have been killed", she told Jon Snow.

"I feel like the government are trying to micromanage people's grieving here".

She added: "There's a lot of anger here towards the council - how they dealt with people's concerns leading up to and after the event". I'm sorry, but I'm hearing from people that the figure is much closer to 150, and that many of those people are children. Those are off the record figures that I'm being given from policemen and firemen'.

'17?' she added, in reference to the number of fatalities confirmed so far.

Lily, who was raised in the area and still lives there, had also expressed how she felt that a number of questions need to be asked about fire regulations.

Taking to Twitter to address the people that have been accusing her of "politicising" the Grenfell Tower incident, she wrote: 'What's left of the building serves as a horrendous metaphor for how the conservatives are running this country.
