Lorraine Kelly is getting a rare day off on Friday, as her show's daily broadcast has been cancelled and replaced with an extended episode of Good Morning Britain. Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid will be on air from 6am until 9:25am with full analysis of the election results as they come in, and will reveal who has been voted prime minister.

The 60-year-old is not the only ITV Daytime presenter who will be enjoying an extra-long weekend; ITV's election coverage will run live throughout the morning until 2pm, with Julie Etchingham presenting a special programme analysing the results and predicting the likely shape of the government.

Thursday not only marked the last episode of This Morning for the week, but also Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield's last day presenting the show in 2019. The presenting duo will enjoy an extended Christmas break until the New Year, with Phillip confirming that Ruth and Eamonn will be standing in for them next week.

Getting ready to be up all night watching #election results. Who else?????"
