Langs­ford said: “I’ve been prac­tis­ing... Eu­ge­nie, Eu­ge­nie,” but her hus­band told her that was “com­pletely wrong”.

Langs­ford quipped: “We should know this by now.”

Holmes told Good Morn­ing Bri­tain: “It’s a huge day for any­one who’s go­ing to come along and any­one who has the will to watch and wish them good­will.”

He added: “There’s no doubt it won’t be the same amount of au­di­ence or crowd that Meghan and Harry had but there’s still a lot of love and a lot of in­ter­est.

“What else would you be do­ing on this Fri­day morn­ing? It’s very nice.”

“Apart from watch­ing This Morn­ing,” Langs­ford said of the ITV ex­tended spe­cial. Langs­ford added that the blus­tery weather was play­ing havoc with her hair, say­ing: “Al­ready it’s all over the place but we’re hop­ing the wind might drop a lit­tle bit be­fore the bride ar­rives.”
