A BBC spokesperson said: “With the sad news that HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, has died, there is now special coverage across all BBC networks to mark his life of extraordinary public service and planned scheduling has been suspended.”
Dedicated news coverage will similarly be shown on ITV until 5pm today.
A live show, entitled Prince Philip: Fondly Remember, will also be celebrating his legacy at 7pm.
Julie Etchingham and Phillip Schofield are set to host and will interview those who knew the late royal best.
The channel will then air Prince Philip: Duke of Edinburgh, which is narrated by journalist James Mates.
However, later this evening on Channel 4, Gogglebox will still air as planned at 9pm, and the final of reality show The Circle will go ahead at 10pm.
