Frank Skinner's revived Room 101 ended its new series with a whimper last night (Friday, March 9), the latest overnight data indicates.

With John Prescott, Micky Flanagan and Rebecca Front featuring, the vintage panel game revived for BBC One slumped to 2.95m (12.2%) in its 8.30pm slot, nearly 800k down on where it started in January.

Benidorm continued to sparkle for ITV1 with 6.09m (26.6%) in the 9pm hour, adding 440k (2.5%) on +1 - overall higher than its equivalent episode at the same time last year.

Eddie Stobart: Trucks and Trailers stayed rock solid for Channel 5, drawing in 1.42m (4.9%) at 8pm. The Mentalist followed with 1.51m (6.5%) an hour later.

The Bank Job: George Lamb
Channel 4's Bank Job also held steady, grabbing 1.06m (4.5%) from 9pm (+1: 199k/1.1%), prior to which 869k (3.6%) watched New Girl at 8.30pm (+1: 169k/0.7%).

Over on BBC Two, familiar 8pm duo Mastermind (2.01m/8.5%) and Gardeners' World (2.04m/8.4%) were reunited to good effect, then Melvyn Bragg on Culture concluded with 1.27m (5.5%).

Across primetime, ITV1 came top with 25% over BBC One which had 19.1%. BBC Two's 6% was enough to win third place, ahead of Channel 5's 4.9% (+1: 0.3%) and Channel 4's 4.4% (+1: 0.9%).

BBC Three's repeat showing of Doctor Who's Weeping Angels classic 'Blink' exhilarated 514k (2.2%), and was one of the night's most-watched multichannel broadcasts.
