ITV heavyweights Holly Willoughby, Lorraine Kelly and Kate Garraway complete the line up alongside Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge and Katie Piper, who was recently made an OBE for her services to charity and victims of burns and other disfigurement injuries. 

The group have been pictured together dressed in various shades of red, pink, maroon and orange to mark the special occasion.

Collectively, the group has earned 18 National Television Awards, five Royal Television Society awards and four Baftas.

ITV has said that between them they have “reported on the biggest news events worldwide over the last 50 years, including 9/11, Madeline McCann’s disappearance, Lockerbie, Princess Diana’s death, Dunblane and the Manchester bombing”.

In an accompanying video, one of the presenters says: “It’s about women sharing their points of view and bringing together those stories that unify us.”

While another describes the group as “feisty”, “opinionated” and “funny” and a third adds: “And when we come together like this, its a moment for reflection of what we’ve all achieved individually but also as a team”.

Emma Gormley, managing director of ITV Daytime, said: “I’m beyond proud to work alongside this amazing group of women, who both individually and collectively have accrued an incredible array of broadcasting achievements.

“Their experience and expertise in front of camera is second to none and this year’s International Women’s day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate them all.”

This year's theme is "Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow", UN Women confirmed in December 2021.

UN Women added that the 2022 theme is about "recognising the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all."
