The comedy special took a further 197k (1.2%) on timeshift. Peter Kay: Live at the Bolton Albert Halls followed with 2.35m (18.4%) and a further 279k (4.1%) on +1.

Earlier on Channel 4, Come Dine With Me continued to draw upwards of a million viewers, tallying 1.14m (4.8%) from 8pm.

On ITV1, Wild Britain with Ray Mears entertained 3.23m (13.8%) at 8pm, and 8.41m (34.8%) saw Fatima's exit from I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! Now! scored 782k (4.7%) on ITV2 from 10.30pm, but the biggest multichannel numbers of the night belonged to Foyle's War at 9pm on ITV3. The detective drama drummed up 1.06m (4.6%).

The Two Ronnies Sketchbook opened BBC One's evening of comedy with 3.32m (14.1%) at 8.30pm. Have I Got News For You and Live at the Apollo followed with 4.68m (18.8%) and 3.22m (13.3%) respectively.
