Christine Bleakley philosophical about Daybreak's disappointing ratings


Christine Bleakley appeared to be quite philosophical about the unimpressive ratings of new ITV breakfast show Daybreak when talking to Buzz today. The new morning TV show, which replaced GMTV, saw Christine and Adrian Chiles move to the channel from BBC One.

Despite being launched with much fanfare however, the ratings have struggled to be much more than what GMTV used to manage. Over the past month, the show has seen around 700,000-800,000 viewers daily, compared to some 1.5-1.6 million for BBC's rival Breakfast show.

Christine said: "There are things that don't work, and we'll change them. We have the most magnificent view, but at 6am it's pitch black. We're learning as we go. We have to earn our right to be the morning choice."

The TV presenter also revealed the backlash has been upsetting for her. "People say they have a thick skin but we're all human. You do get upset," the 31-year-old said.
