The first episode of the new series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here had an average audience of more than 13m.

Consolidated viewing figures, which include catch up and online views over the last week as well as live viewing, bring the audience to 13,171,000 - half a million more than for the 5 May episode of Line of Duty, which previously stood at the top of the 2019 ratings charts.
