The Great British Bake Off’s 2018 celebrity specials concluded with just under 4 million viewers last night.
The fifth and final all star episodes, in support of Stand Up To Cancer, was watched by 3.9 million viewers.
The latest show was up 100,000 on last week’s numbers but couldn’t quite match the series high of 4.1 million set by Episode 3.
In the fifth instalment, the four brave celebrities ushered into the Bake Off tent were author and Host/Creator of the YouTube channel Hatching Change Teri Hatcher, Paralympic gold medallist Kadeena Cox, comedian Alan Carr and comedian and actor Aisling Bea.
The Great British Bake Off charity specials see a new line up of all star names each week who take part in three challenges before one celeb is crowned Star Baker.
It’s fully expected that the celebrity charity series will return next year, following the main series of Bake Off later in 2017. It’ll be the second to air on Channel 4 as part of a three-year deal.
Back to last night and on ITV, Emmerdale was the most watched show of the day with 6.1 million viewers.
Paul O’Grady’s For the Love of Dogs and 100 Year Old Driving School did 2.4 million apiece before new celebrity series Last Laugh in Vegas started with 2.2 million at 9PM.
On BBC One, new drama Come Home continued with a solid 3.1 million viewers in the 9PM hour. Christopher Eccleston stars in the three parter, from the makers of Happy Valley, Ordinary Lies and Trust Me, created and written by Danny Brocklehurst. The series began with 3.5 million viewers last Tuesday.
Earlier on BBC One, EastEnders averaged 5.9 million viewers while Holby City followed with 4.1 million, both up 100,000 viewers week-on-week.
