Entertainment correspondent Caroline Whitmore reports from Aintree
It's a case of hold onto your hats and here come the girls, as the crowds return to Ladies Day at Aintree for the first time since 2019.
Last year's Grand National festival was held behind closed doors due to Covid, but the event is well and truly back with a bang.
Day one on Thursday saw 10,000 NHS staff given free tickets to say thank you for their work during the pandemic, but Friday is the day all eyes will be on the fashion.
Around 150,000 racegoers will pass through the gates at Aintree over the three day festival, but Friday is the big one in the fashion stakes.
Felicity Hat Hire in Liverpool has been doing a roaring trade, and has even been open extra hours in the run up to Ladies Day.
Owner Deana Taylor, owner, said: "We are absolutely bombed out. Our opening hours are normally 10am until 4pm but I was in at 8am this morning. Everybody is going a bit extra this year, they are all really excited."
