This Morning broadcasts live from Buckingham Palace on Tuesday 24th May

ITV’s daytime royalty Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will step into one of the world’s most famous royal residences and host This Morning live from Buckingham Palace on Tuesday 24th May.

The multi award-winning show will take its team from White City through the iconic gold and black gates to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

Phillip and Holly announced the exciting news on today’s This Morning. Holly told viewers, “Hello and welcome to your Monday this morning. It is the start of a brand new week and we have got a very exciting announcement.”

Two members of the London Fanfare Trumpets began playing and Gyles Brandreth walked through the studio doors and read out an exclusive invitation from Buckingham Palace.

He said, “Dear Mr Schofield and Ms Willoughby, you have been given a royal appointment for tomorrow, as we will be broadcasting live from Buckingham Palace to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

"You will be taking a look back at the Queen’s magnificent 70 years of sovereign, with a host of special guests. We look forward to welcoming you live from 10 o’clock tomorrow morning as the celebrations begin at Buckingham Palace.”

Holly said, “I’m so excited. That almost made me cry!’

Phillip added, “Beautifully done!”

Holly then said, “Downton Abbey and now Buckingham Palace - we do get the keys to all the best houses in Britain, don’t we?

Phillip agreed, “We really do! But this is the best one!”

Tomorrow at Buckingham Palace, Phillip and Holly will be joined by Gyles, who will take viewers on a look back at the Queen’s history-making 70-year reign.

Art lover Gok Wan will give a tour of the Picture Gallery and tell the story of some of the most exclusive art work in the world. He will also discuss the Queen’s incredible style evolution over the past eight decades, and how her fashion choices have inspired generations.

Horticultural expert David Domoney will explore the Queen’s favourite corners of her garden, while chef Phil Vickery will experience the royal kitchens and reveal the origins of legendary Palace recipes.

Ahead of today’s show, Phillip Schofield said, “What a privilege to get permission from Buckingham Palace for this special show. We are all really looking forward to getting a little more insight into the Queen’s life and family history, and although we have had quite a few royal moments on This Morning over the years, to be at her residence during her Platinum Jubilee year is pretty special.”

Holly Willoughby added, “I have been very lucky to have been a part of many ‘firsts’ on This Morning, but to present live from Her Majesty’s home during such a special year for her is a dream come true. I cannot wait to have a look around!”

Martin Frizell, Editor, This Morning said, “This will be our way of commemorating one of the greatest monarchs in history. To be allowed to broadcast from the Palace, which has been her home for most of her life is an honour. Our viewers will be in for a real treat. We are taking a host of our This Morning family with us and I’m sure this will be a memorable day for us all.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV & ITV Hub
