Tom Bradby - who anchored election nights in 2015, 2017 and 2019 - will again lead ITV's coverage as viewers see the results announced and the emerging political shape of the new Parliament.

Tom will be joined in the studio throughout the night by an unrivalled team of political insider guests including George Osborne, Ed Balls and Nicola Sturgeon for Election 2024 Live: The Results airing on ITV1, ITVX, STV and STV Player.  

Also on hand will be ITV News' Robert Peston, Anushka Asthana and Paul Brand plus ITV's leading election analysts Professor Jane Green and Professor Colin Rallings. 

ITV News reporters will be on the ground right around the UK throughout bringing news from every corner of the country. At 6am Good Morning Britain will come on air with Susanna Reid and Ed Balls co-anchoring, with the latter leaving the overnight coverage to join GMB. 

The studio will host the best, brightest, most outspoken and listened to political policy makers and commentators in the country including leading political punditry pairing Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire, former PM Boris Johnson's communications chief Guto Harri, Labour veteran Harriet Harman.

Plus former Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng, newly enobled Labour peer Ayesha Hazarika and former Prime Minister Gordon Brown who will all join as guests 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. Will Rishi Sunak stay in Number 10 or will Keir Starmer arrive for the first time? Who will be moving into ministerial offices? Dramatic political questions are likely to be answered during the live coverage on Day 2.

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