Every race at Royal Ascot 2021 will be shown on ITV, the broadcaster has revealed.
All seven contests on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday are included on the channel's bumper programme of live sport.
This year the meeting takes place from June 15-19 – and a team of experts will be guiding TV viewers through the top class action.
Hosts Ed Chamberlin and Francesca Cumani are leading the main show, joined by pundit Jason Weaver on each afternoon.
Chamberlin said: "With some of the crowds back, the atmosphere will return to Royal Ascot and we will ensure viewers at home won’t miss a thing with every race covered in a five hour show every day.”
Johnny Murtagh, Sir Anthony McCoy, Hayley Turner,Rishi Persad, Matt Chapman, Adele Mulrennan, Kevin Blake and Luke Harvey have roles in the coverage, as well as commentators Richard Hoiles and Mark Johnson.
Chris Hughes returns alongside Oli Bell in the popular social stable to interact with viewers at home, as do the lifestyle team of Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins and Lorraine’s Mark Heyes.
Cumani said: "Royal Ascot is one of my favourite weeks of the year. In spite of a ‘lockdown’ Ascot last year we had some extraordinary racing, and this year we expect more of this, plus the joy of having people back to bring Ascot back to its glitz, glamour and glory."
