The arrival of the Brits, Paul Burrell & Vicky Pattinson, has provided no lift for I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here as it battles Nine & Seven.
Last night the show pulled 529,000 viewers, its lowest figure so far, while Married at First Sight outranked MKR on 1.06m and 1.03m viewers, respectively.
Burrell gave the first of his royal insights, including his views on whether Prince Harry was fathered by Prince Charles (yes) and detailed his first meeting with Her Majesty. But it wasn’t enough to contend against two titans elsewhere, and subsequently impacted Hughesy We Have a Problem slipping under 450,000.
Nine’s Date Night has debuted quite well with 529,000 in a 9pm timeslot, winning its slot outside of Winter Olympics. The demos were particularly good.
The Checkout was another caught in the Reality crossfire at 494,000, down slightly on last week’s 519,000. Insight returned to 217,000 for SBS.
