Details have been announced of a ballot for tickets to a star-studded concert at Buckingham Palace to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Ten thousand free tickets will be available for the Platinum Party at the Palace on 4 June.

The ballot will be open from 07:00 GMT on 24 February until 23:59 on 23 March.

George Ezra is the first performer to be named on the line-up, which the BBC said it would range from "pop stars to rock royalty to opera singers".

There will be a full live orchestra, while "stars from film, TV and the stage will also tell the story and celebrate some of the most significant cultural moments from the Queen's reign", a statement said.

It will be among the celebrations to mark the Queen becoming the first British monarch to reign for 70 years.

Charlotte Moore, the BBC's chief content officer, said in a statement: "The Platinum Party at the Palace is set to be one of the highlights of Her Majesty The Queen's landmark Jubilee festivities weekend and one of the biggest concerts in a generation.

"The BBC is honoured to be bringing every moment of this live event to millions watching and listening at home, and on outdoor screens across the UK and around the world."

Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Sir Elton John performed at a Diamond Jubilee concert in 2012, while Queen guitarist Brian May famously played on the roof of Buckingham Palace at a concert 10 years earlier to mark 50 years on the throne.

The latest announcement comes after the palace confirmed on Sunday that the 95-year-old monarch had tested positive for Covid and was experiencing "mild cold-like symptoms".
