This year there wasn’t a thing like the arrival of a much-cherished show like Gavin and Stacey, which a year ago performed especially, with 11.6m “short-term” watchers. A monstrous figure by any norms.
Likewise, Christmas Day is considered just like when families assemble to stare at the TV. In any case, this year, the pandemic implies that numerous families haven’t been permitted to or have decided not to be together, something that is probably going to have affected that customary piece of the crowd.
Be that as it may, the Queen’s transmission stays a bringing together second for some, and is obviously serenely at the highest point of the current year’s survey diagram.
