Today will see the Royal Air Force take part in an impressive aircraft display to celebrate 100 years since the military strand was first formed.
The military men and women will flypast Buckingham Palace at midday as people across London gather to witness the moment and the Queen will join various members of the royal family at various events to celebrate the centenary.
Joining Good Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid to talk about her involvement in the RAF, former Countdown mathematician Carol Vorderman made a grand entrance to the ITV studio decked head-to-toe in uniform.
The entire studio were in good spirits as Susanna, 47, called out: “Good morning Ma’am!”
Accompanied by a collection of musical instruments, Carol strode towards the pair as Piers joined in welcoming the television personality.
Noting her unusual appearance, Carol clarified: “I’m an honorary group captain, yes I have been for years.”
Seemingly setting the tone for the morning, Piers, 53, quickly cut in: “You do look good in uniform.”
Laughing, Carol appeared to fight her embarrassment as she replied: “Thank you very much Piers.”
“I wish I could say you did the same,” Carol then teased.
Chuckling at the pair’s repartee, Susanna noted: “Never seen Piers in uniform. Though he’s angling for a…”
Seemingly trying to put the normally fiery journalist under pressure, Carol confessed: “I have, at a few parties.”
The trio continued to giggle but Piers moved swiftly on from Carol’s remark.
“It’s a big day for the RAF isn’t it,” he steered.
“It is, it’s fantastic it really is,” Carol explained. “We had the world premiere of this fabulous movie Spitfire last night with a lot of the veterans there, so the RAF 100 is all about the commemoration of those who have been before.
“It’s also about celebrating those who are serving today and then inspiring the future.”
As footage swapped to a line of planes whipping across UK skies, Carol narrated for the breakfast audience.
“And the ambassador for the air cadets,” she continued. “You’ve seen our wonderful air cadets here from 282 East Ham squadron, and they’ll all be popping down to Westminster later.”
This morning’s explosive instalment of the popular news programme also saw Piers enter into a heated discussion with London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
The former Daily Mail journalist proceeded to grill the guest on his stance about London knife crime and the upcoming protest plans set to take place during US President Donald Trump’s visit to London this week.
These will include a giant balloon blimp in the shape of Donald Trump as a young toddler launched into London skies, as well as a giant street demonstration in the city’s central streets.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
