British and international talent were lined up for the extravaganza including suited and booted actors Damian Lewis and Martin Clunes, singers Keala Settle and Gregory Porter, and comedian Omid Djalili, and Bridgerton star Adjoa Andoh.

But viewers were appalled when ITV made a huge mistake and called household name Martin Clunes Damien Lewis.

The Doc Martin star was presenting a segment in the Gallop Through Time performance at the Windsor arena, when his name appeared as 'Damian Lewis OBE' instead.

Viewers were annoyed by the mistake and shared their feelings on Twitter.
