ITV has created a feature-length commercial to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.
Filmed entirely on the Coronation Street set at MediaCityUK, it will feature 11 high profile brands as well as a number of ITV presenters.
Prolific North reports that the ad-break takeover will be broadcast during a 2 and a half hour live show on Sunday 15th May, in the presence of The Queen.
