ITV has today confirmed its line up for Election night on Thursday 4th July 2024.

Tom Bradby will front ITV’s coverage in the company of George Osborne, Ed Balls and Nicola Sturgeon.

Tom – who anchored election nights in 2015, 2017 and 2019 – will also be joined by throughout the night by ITV News’ Robert Peston, Anushka Asthana and Paul Brand plus ITV’s leading election analysts Professor Jane Green and Professor Colin Rallings.

At 6am Good Morning Britain will come on air with Susanna Reid and Ed Balls co-presenting, with the latter leaving the overnight coverage to join GMB.

Political punditry guests including Andrew Pierce, Kevin Maguire, Guto Harri, Harriet Harman, Kwasi Kwarteng, Ayesha Hazarika and Gordon Brown will all join GMB as the show continues to cover up-to-the-minute election news and insights through to 9.25am.

ITV will remain on air from 9.25am with Julie Etchingham leading the coverage.

“ITV will be on air from just before the polls close right through until the full results are known,” Michael Jermey, ITV’s Director of News and Current Affairs, said.

“Tom Bradby and his guests will share great analysis and insider knowledge with our viewers through the night. With cameras and reporters right around the country we’ll follow the political story wherever it goes.

“Good Morning Britain will be on air in its regular slot and then through the rest of Day 2, as politicians head to Westminster having learned the results, Julie Etchingham and our team of political correspondents will be live on ITV1 reporting on all the events in Westminster and Downing Street. It promises to be a dramatic day”.
