Martin’s Money Mondays will be replaced by Good Morning Britain with Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard on ITV from 6am to 10am. Good Morning Britain will be followed by an ITV news special called The King’s Tour – Westminster.

The broadcaster announced that Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will host a special This Morning at 11 a.m. that will feature tales and recollections from people who met the Queen during her reign.

Queen Elizabeth II: Lying At Rest, which will air on ITV all afternoon before Tipping Point, The Chase, and Coronation Street return to the network, will premiere at 1 p.m.

After the Queen passed away, the episode of Coronation Street that will air on Monday was originally scheduled for Friday.

According to the announcement, the network will also air an extended version of ITV News at Ten.
