A movie dramatisation of Prince William and Kate Middleton's romance is to be given a UK TV screening.
The US-made film, William & Kate: The Movie, will be shown by Channel 5 as part of the station's royal wedding coverage this month.
The film stars relative unknown Camilla Luddington as Kate while New Zealand-born actor Nico Evers-Swindell plays William.
Chariots Of Fire actor Ben Cross also features as the Prince of Wales.
The film is also being released on DVD.
Katie Keenan, Channel 5's head of acquisitions, said: "The William and Kate movie has sparked worldwide interest and anticipation and we are really pleased that Channel 5 will be able to offer viewers its UK TV premiere."
The channel's news coverage for the day will be led by presenters Matt Barbet and Emma Crosby.
Programmes which will mark the couple's big day include special editions of The Wright Stuff and OK! TV.
