ITV details Election night plans


ITV has officially announced their team for Election night. Tom Bradby, who has previously hosted three election nights in 2015, 2017, and 2019, will once again take the helm of ITV's coverage. Audience members will be able to witness the announcement of results and the gradual formation of the new Parliament's political landscape.

During Election 2024 Live: The Results, which will be broadcasted on ITV1, ITVX, STV, and STV Player, Bradby will have a group of political experts as his guests in the studio. These insiders include George Osborne, Ed Balls, and Nicola Sturgeon who will join him throughout the night.

Additionally, present at the event will be several eminent figures from ITV News, such as Robert Peston, Anushka Asthana, and Paul Brand. Furthermore, the event will feature leading election analysts Professor Jane Green and Professor Colin Rallings. To ensure comprehensive coverage, numerous ITV News reporters will be stationed across the UK, delivering updates from every nook and cranny of the country.

Good Morning Britain will start airing at 6am and will be presented by Susanna Reid and Ed Balls. Ed Balls will move from overnight coverage to join GMB as a co-anchor.

The TV studio will be hosting various political figures from the country, including Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire who commentate on politics, Boris Johnson's former communications chief Guto Harri, veteran Labour member Harriet Harman, former Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng, newly ennobled Labour peer Ayesha Hazarika, and former Prime Minister Gordon Brown. They will all be featured as guests on the show, which will keep viewers informed on the latest election news and insights and run until 9.25am. After that, ITV's coverage will continue, with Julie Etchingham at the helm.

ITV's Director of News and Current Affairs, Michael Jermey, made a statement about the upcoming election coverage. ITV will broadcast from before the polls close until the complete results are available. Tom Bradby and his guests will provide excellent analysis and share inside information with viewers throughout the night. With cameras and reporters situated throughout the country, ITV will follow the political story in real-time. Good Morning Britain will follow its usual timeslot, and then throughout Day 2, as politicians head to Westminster with the election results, Julie Etchingham and a team of political correspondents will be live on ITV1 covering all events happening in Westminster and Downing Street. It's bound to be an exciting day.
