Phillip Schofield to host ITV's coverage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Phillip Schofield is basically the king of television, so it should come as no surprise that he will be hosting ITV’s coverage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

Schofe announced the news on yesterday’s (April 26) This Morning, confirming that he will be leading the five-hour spectacular along with Julie Etchingham on May 19.

The veteran presenter, who also hosted coverage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding, promised “five and a half hours of royal fun”, which sounds slightly more daunting than fun, if we’re being honest.

Detailing ITV’s coverage of the event, Phillip revealed that it will start at 9.25am on Saturday, May 19 and will run through until 3pm, so you might want to stock up on sofa supplies.

“All of the guests, all of the coverage and the entire ITV news team” will be correct and present for this year’s royal wedding – but don’t worry, it’s not going to be a stuffy affair.

“I think this will be a really fun day, a really fun wedding and a different feel to other ones we have seen before,” he said.

If the thought of watching the wedding of two people you don’t know isn’t your cup of tea, then worry not! Harry and Meghan have put on entertainment fit for, well, anyone.

Kensington Palace announced earlier this week that a star of 2015’s Britain’s Got Talent, cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, will be performing at the wedding.

And if that’s not reason to crack open a bottle of Pimms, we don’t know what is.
