ITV are going behind-the-scenes of The Ritz hotel for a new documentary.

The luxury five-star London establishment boasts rooms that cost over £5,000 a night and has counted the likes of Queen Elizabeth, Charlie Chaplin, Noel Coward, Sir Roger Moore and Kate Moss among its most famous guests over the years, and now viewers will get to see just what it takes to run the high-end establishment in a new show.

"The Ritz" will explore the life and work of the 400 members of staff, as well as guests at the hotel when it airs early next year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "On the surface it's a simply jaw-dropping hotel which is legendary the world over.

"But behind the scenes, it's a hotbed of trials, divas and daily toil for the Ritz team, who all work hard to ensure they maintain its global reputation.
