The Lord's Test between England and Australia is one of the most hotly-anticipated events in the sporting calendar and every cricket-loving celebrity wants to be here.

Oscar winning actor Russell Crowe and his Les Miserables co-star Hugh Jackman were enjoying the spectacle from the Grand Stand.

Lords.org grabbed a quick chat with the Aussie duo - listen below.

Queue like you mean it

As is tradition at Lord's, the first day of the Test always sees a long queue forming very early in the morning as Members line up to reserve their favourite seat.

Lord's TV was out bright and early to sample the atmosphere along St John's Wood Road and Wellington Road.

Watch the video below.

MCC President Mike Griffith escorts The Queen through the Pavilion

There was a special visit to Lord's when Her Majesty The Queen was introduced to both sets of players and officials before the start of play this morning.

The Queen made her way through the Pavilion on to the outfield to applause from MCC Members, before settling in to the Committee Room to watch some of the day's action.
