E! News reports: "The special will reveal the full list of 100 influential people in what ABC calls 'an entertainment-filled inside look at the leaders, creators and everyday heroes comprising the 2020 list ahead of its TIME print debut'".

Harry and Meghan have been making public visits to charities and organisations, including a children's preschool in Los Angeles, where they planted flowers in memory of the Duke's late mother Princess Diana.

"I think we really put together the best complete package and we're going to do a wide range of entertainment with them.

"I can't tell you any more about it at this point, but I think it will be some of the most exciting, most viewed content next year."

Reed appeared to rule out that former actress Meghan will make a return to the screen, saying: "The real focus for them is on being producers and building that production capacity so that's the key thing."
