So i've bet a total of £30 on Christmas Day ratings -
£20 on Call the Midwife - £170 up if it wins.
£5 on Downton Abbey - break even if it wins.
£5 on Strictly - £100 up if it wins.
If EastEnders or something else tops the ratings i've lost £30.
Will make Boxing Day morning a bit more interesting anyway...
Although I laughed and laughed at the ITV News, if.Corrie/Downton viewers treat it as an extended ad break it could get a strong number. Don't forget the biggest Christmas Day peak last year was on ITV as Corrie finished.
If that happens again, the news might not just top ITV's figures, but top the lot.
Or it might get 2m if viewers just flick to Midwife.
