After months of build-up and weeks of campaigning, the decision is finally here. Will the people of the UK choose to leave or remain in the European Union?
The BBC, ITV and Sky News will air special results programmes this evening and throughout most of Friday morning.
The BBC’s live results programme, presented by David Dimbleby, starts at 9.55pm on BBC One and the BBC News Channel.
BBC economics editor Kamal Ahmed will be keeping a watchful eye on the reaction of the markets and political editor Laura Kuenssberg will assess the impact the results will have in the days, weeks and years ahead.
Other BBC presenters will be reporting live as results are announced in the regions, and gauging reaction from the public, including Naga Munchetty in Sunderland, Clive Myrie from Basingstoke, Jane Hill in Swindon, Jo Coburn in Manchester, James Williams in Wales, Mark Devenport in Northern Ireland, and Sarah Smith in Scotland.
Throughout the night, the programme will join Nick Robinson as he journeys across the UK, starting in Edinburgh and ending in London, as he speaks to various politicians and voters to discuss what the referendum decision could mean.
ITV News at Ten presenter Tom Bradby will front ITV’s live coverage from 10pm.
From Brussels to Belfast, Paris to Plymouth, the programme will be live to correspondents across the country, around Europe and beyond.
Sky’s main results programme starts at 9.30pm with Adam Boulton in Westminster.
Kay Burley will be touring the referendum night parties, and, as the political fallout starts, Faisal Islam will be live in Downing Street to explain what the result means for British politics in the coming days.
Ed Conway will be in charge of Sky’s big data screen, which not only has the results as they come in for each local authority, but other statistics too.
And at some stage during the programme, Michael Thrasher will make a Sky News projection. Harry Carr, from Sky Data, will also be providing his own analysis.
Friday Morning Programmes
BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain and Sky News Sunrise will all be on air from 6am with more results.
