Coronation Street's shock twist wins Friday night ratings

Coronation Street's shock twist wins Friday night ratings
The shock twist involving Seb helps Coronation Street to top the Friday night ratings.

The shock death of Seb (Harry Visinoni) on last night's Coronation Street was a ratings draw for ITV, according to early figures.

The 8.30pm edition of the soap, which saw Seb lose his life after a horrific hate crime attack, pulled in 4.69m (26.9%) to rank as the top non-news programme of the day on any TV channel. The first episode at 7.30pm had brought in 4.61m (30.1%).

Emmerdale was second among the soaps for the night, averaging 4.07m (28.7%) for its 7pm episode.

EastEnders, which aired between Corrie episodes on BBC One at 8.05pm, had a disappointing 2.66m (17%) for an episode featuring the build-up to Callum and Ben's possible wedding.

Elsewhere on Friday, Channel 4's Gogglebox again won the 9pm hour with a solid 3.92m (21.7%).
