Last night's EastEnders saw the show's lowest ever viewing figures after a last minute move to BBC Two.

The latest instalment of the BBC soap switched channels for Wimbledon and was watched by 3.4 million viewers to the 4.9 million tuning in for the tennis on BBC One between 7PM and 9PM.

Following the tennis, Peter Kay's Comedy Shuffle had 4.1 million viewers while Mrs Brown's Boys had 3.1 million watching.

Over on ITV and going up against Wimbledon, Emmerdale had 4.7 million viewers while Coronation Street was the most watched show on TV last night with 5.7 million and 5.5 million viewers for it two episodes.

Later at 9PM, US import Lethal Weapon finished its 18 episode run with 2.1 million viewers. The show has been remarkably consistent on Friday nights, averaging just under 2.3 million viewers across its series.

Over on ITV2, Love Island continued strongly with 1.9 million viewers for a VERY dramatic recoupling episode.

On Channel 5, Big Brother avoided a clash with Love Island by pushing its eviction back to 10PM, interesting an average of 800,000 viewers over the 90 minute live show.

This is up on the 700,000 who watched last Friday's episode, although that wasn't a live eviction, and down on the 900,000 who watched last Thursday's eviction which aired from 9PM.
