If that isn't your thing, perhaps you'll be interested in our alternative coronation TV guide, with a list of non-royal programmes running throughout Saturday. Also worth a watch is the second part of the Channel 4 documentary Andrew: The Problem Prince, following the disgraced royal's disastrous Newsnight interview back in 2019.

A new BBC comedy series coming to screens this week is Black Ops - the sitcom follows two PCSOs who are sent undercover in a criminal network, and soon find themselves in over their heads. The six part series premieres on Friday 5 at 9.30pm and will air at the time time weekly. Episodes will also be available to watch on BBC iPlayer shortly after they first air.
