'Little' is larger

Little Britain adds 1.7m viewers

Little Britain has added almost two million extra viewers following the end of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

Just under 6 million viewers tuned in to the comedy between 9.30pm and 10pm on Friday – more than a quarter of the total TV audience.

The overnight figures are up 1.7 million on the previous week, when it struggled against the celebrity jungle show.

The toned-down rerun of the BBC Three hit beat ITV1’s Touch Of Frost, seen by 4.7million, by more than a million.

And it even managed to build an extra 500,000 viewers on to the 5.4 million audience inherited by the ever-popular Have I Got News For You.

Meanwhile, on Channel 4’s comedy night, 2.7 million watched The Simpsons, 3.1 million saw the Peter Kay vehicle Max & Paddy's Road to Nowhere, and a Father Ted rerun attracted 1.5 million.
