Unsurprisingly, EastEnders struggled due to its schedule clash with Emmerdale and the rival soap's head start. 4.52m (20.6%) tuned in at 7.30pm on BBC One as Michael and Janine's custody rows continued, but BBC Three's repeat screening later saw a boost with 764k (5.5%) watching at 10.30pm.

Holby City attracted 4.26m (17.9%) at 8pm on BBC One with the dramatic aftermath of Arthur and Chantelle's car crash.
