EastEnders topped the soap ratings on Thursday above rival soap Emmerdale.

The Albert Square arrival of Cora's daughter Ava attracted 7.33 million (a 33.1% share) to BBC One at 7.30pm, while 540,000 (3.5%) caught BBC Three's 10.30pm repeat.

Emmerdale's high-profile double bill, which saw Katie get stuck down a mineshaft, pulled in audiences of 7.08m (32.9%) at 7pm (+1: 134k) and 6.9m (28.4%) at 8pm (+1: 192k).
