War Horse rears for the centenary of Armistice Day
This weekend marks 100 years since the end of World War One. A century has passed since the guns fell silent on Europe's battlefields, following four years of bloodshed which saw 17million people lose their lives.
People around the country will gather to commemorate fallen soldiers from the First and the Second World War on Remembrance Day. Theresa May has laid a wreath at the graves of the UK soldiers who were killed, during an Armistice trip in France and Belgium.
As part of the memorial services, Michael Morpurgo's War Horse joined Good Morning Britain on-air alongside a heartwarming performance from the Military Wives Choirs.
Originally a novel by Michael Morpurgo, the children's book was transformed from page to stage 11 years ago. It has since become the National Theatre's most successful stage show, gathering multiple awards.
The play is an adaptation of a story set in challenging times. A young boy, Albert and his horse Joey display the power of loyalty and friendship between a human and his steed. Proving a firm friendship can bring hope, even during the hardship of the First World War.
