It comes after viewers noticed the broadcaster had added a 90-minute special on Dispatches for Saturday evening, a prime spot.
The preview of the Channel 4 show gives no indication of what viewers can expect with just the usual “investigative series covering issues in British society, politics, international news, health, religion and the environment” in place.
However, according to some reports, the investigation will highlight bad behavior by a number of well-known names, which could end their careers.

While speculation around the show multiplies on social networks, Channel 4 newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy got viewers talking after tweeting “Something’s Up” with a screenshot from TV Guide showing the Dispatches special.
However, Guru-Murthy was quick to delete the Tweet an hour later.
“The Mirror understands the documentary aims to highlight the bad behavior of a well-known name. The content of the Dispatches, which will cover a number of industry celebrities, would potentially be extremely damaging. https://t.co/sty28bcs0D
