Share post:

ITV is one of the networks dedicating its coverage to the Queen on Friday morning, following the monarch’s death on Thursday. 

Her passing came after the news that medical experts showed concern for her health during her stay at Balmoral in Scotland. 

On Thursday night, ITV and the BBC cancelled all of their scheduled programmes to make way for rolling news coverage. 

This will continue into Friday morning, with some changes being made to the usual schedule. 

The updated schedule is as follows: 

6am-9am: GMB presented by Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard

9am:  Extended ITV News Special

8.30pm Queen Elizabeth II – The Longest Reign 

This special programme is being presented by Jonathan Dimbleby and is an authored tribute to Queen Elizabeth II.

The show will document her historic reign, touching on her humble beginnings, through her coronation and all of the triumphs and tragedies she has faced. 

The feature-length documentary recalls the roles she played at home and abroad during huge periods of social and economic change. 

10pm:  ITV News At Ten

This schedule may be subject to change as the rolling story develops and further programming updates will be announced soon. 

There will be no commercial breaks on ITV’s main channel during this period of coverage.
