Lily Allen's appearance on BBC Newsnight was cancelled yesterday after she accused the government of trying to 'micro-manage' the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
The confirmed death toll of Wednesday morning's fire is currently 30 people, with the number expected to rise as more bodies are removed from the building.
However, in an interview with Channel 4 News, Allen claimed the number was "much closer to 150" from what she'd been told by policemen and firemen in off-the-record comments.
The singer accused the Government of trying to "micro-manage" the tragedy and individual grief, and also said the mainstream media had been trying to "downplay" the incident.
Following these comments, she confirmed on Twitter Newsnight had cancelled her appearance, opting to go with a council member instead.
Work on the site at Grenfell Tower continues apace, with volunteers seeking to house residents displaced by the fire.
