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.

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.
