BIG DAY The bride and groom

BBC1, 10.35pm Of course there is an­other stel­lar line-up of guests on the show tonight – but there’s one in par­tic­u­lar we are most ex­cited about.

The ir­re­press­ible and wildly un­pre­dictable Miriam Mar­golyes will be on the red couch to chat about her role in hit BBC drama Call The Mid­wife.

And if pre­vi­ous ap­pear­ances are any­thing to go by, any­thing could hap­pen. Famed for be­ing frank (some­times shock­ingly so), she once BBC1, 7pm

DING, dong the bells are go­ing to chime. Yes, it’s the big day to­mor­row, and while we might not be get­ting a bank hol­i­day out of it (groan), the na­tion will cer­tainly be celebrating.

Prince Harry mar­ries ac­tress Meghan Markle in St Ge­orge’s Chapel at Wind­sor Cas­tle at noon to­mor­row, and across the UK the bunting will be up, flags flown and glasses raised.

Whip­ping up the ex­cite­ment tonight, Kirsty Young, Huw Ed­wards and Der­mot O’Leary are re­port­ing live from Wind­sor – upon which thou­sands of well- wish­ers will de­scend.

The pre­sen­ters won’t be get­ting much sleep tonight. You will find them there to­mor­row morn­ing too, pulling a night shift in the name of tele­vi­sion.

For those of us who – quite sen­si­bly – de­cided that the chaos of Wind­sor would be best avoided, the team brings us the ac­tion from the heart of the royal wed­ding of the year.

On the eve of Harry and Meghan’s big day, the team will meet the peo­ple who are play­ing key roles and hear of their prepa­ra­tions for the oc­ca­sion.

They will also be joined by some of the in­vited guests, who share their ex­cite­ment about at­tend­ing such a spe­cial event.

And there will be chat with the ever-in­creas­ing crowds.

There will be lots to talk about of course, in­clud­ing Meghan’s dress, jewellery, Har ry’s ush­ers, the guest list, the cer­e­mony, the pro­ces­sion, the cake, the speeches (will Meghan give one?), the flow­ers, the mu­sic, the hon­ey­moon... we’re just grate­ful we didn’t have to plan any of it. told a story of a “crazy” sexual in­ter­ac­tion with an Amer­i­can sol­dier. Then there was the tale of a script cov­ered in blood, and an­other about swear­ing on Univer­sity Chal­lenge. She spares no de­tail, let’s just say that.

Hope­fully Miriam’s fel­low guests aren’t eas­ily of­fended. They are Emilia Clarke, star­ring in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Glo­ria Este­fan, who dis­cusses a new show about her life and mu­sic called On Your Feet, Broad­church ac­tor David Ten­nant, and singer Leon Bridges, who per­forms his new sin­gle Beyond.
