In addition, ITV1 had its best New Year's Day for two years with its all time audience up by +10%, compared to New Year's Day last year.
 
Mr Bates vs the Post Office was the most watched programme across all channels yesterday with 3.9m, easily beating The Tourist on BBC1 (2.2m). On ITVX the series has already been streamed more than 1 million times in its first day alone.
