Phillip Schofield will front ITV's coverage of the royal wedding, it's been reported.

The 49-year-old Dancing On Ice and This Morning presenter will anchor the coverage with News At Ten presenter Julie Etchingham, according to the Daily Mail.

Other ITV News presenters including Mark Austin, Alastair Stewart and Mary Nightingale will also feature on the day.

The ceremony on April 29 is expected to draw large audiences with the BBC, ITV and Sky all competing for viewers.

It was earlier reported Huw Edwards will front the BBC's coverage.

Earlier plans to film the Westminster Abbey ceremony in 3D were dropped because of the space needed for the format's cameras and its relatively small audience.

Broadcasters had hoped to be given the go-ahead to use the technology to televise the event, which is expected to draw a huge worldwide audience.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
