Emmerdale was the most watched show on TV last night (Tuesday, May 8).

The latest instalment of the ITV soap had 5.3 million viewers to top the evening's ratings.


Devon and Cornwall Cops interested 2.3 million straight after while 2.2 million watched Davina McCall's This Time Next Year's latest episode.

At 9PM, Who Wants to be a Millionaire was back with 3.9 million viewers. This remains 1.2 million on Saturday's premiere following Britain's Got Talent but is level with Monday's instalment and the most watched show in the hour.

Jeremy Clarkson is the unlikely new host of a special week of brand new episodes, which continue at 9PM this evening on ITV.

Over on BBC One, Eastenders had 5 million tuning in for its latest episode.

3.5 million stuck around for Holby City while new drama The Split continued with 3.3 million viewers in the 9PM hour.

Elsewhere, on BBC Four, the first Eurovision semi-final averaged 500,000 viewers between 8PM and 10PM. This is the same rating as 2017's first semi-final.


The second Eurovision semi-final takes place live on Thursday night before the main event on Saturday evening, on BBC One.

On Channel 4, Genderquake's two-part series ended with fewer than a million viewers while 1.5 million watched The Yorkshire Vet on Channel 5.
