Channel Ten’s I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! has become TV’s biggest surprise juggernaut this ratings season.
The reality show is proving unbeatable in its primetime spot, gaining a massive 678,000 viewers on Wednesday night, according to figures published by TV Blackbox.
The Australian-based TV show came in as the fifth most watched show overall, behind network news bulletins.
The show has become a huge surprise hit after it premiered earlier this month with fans unable to get enough of the likes of Jack Vidgen and Toni Pearen.
The show beat out The Project, A Current Affair and The Chase Australia, according to the OzTam five-city metro data.
Wednesday’s episode saw Jack Vidgen break down as he spoke of his complicated relationship with his mother, Rachel Hayton.
In an emotional confession, Jack revealed the ‘power dynamic’ between him and Rachel changed when he won Australia’s Got Talent at the age of 14.
The win made him feel like he was the family’s ‘breadwinner’ which lead him to resent that level of responsibility on his young shoulders.
The new season was pre-recorded for the first time this year, and production was also relocated from South Africa to northern NSW due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The reality show had a strong premiere with more than a million viewers watching the series which was considerably more than its 2020 premiere.
About 1,000,300 people tuned into the broadcast, compared to 980,000 in 2020.
The show has consistently rated well since the premiere with a number of viewers drawn in by the drama of the series.
It has consistently ranked as TV’s most watched entertainment series gaining more than 700,000 viewers on its fourth night on air.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues Thursday at 7.30pm on 10
В очередном матче 17-го тура немецкой Бундеслиги леверкузенский «Байер» обыграл дортмундскую «Боруссию».
Встреча прошла в Леверкузене на стадионе «Бай-Арена» при пустых трибунах и завершилась победой хозяев с минимальным счетом 2:1.
В составе победителей забитыми мячами отметились Мусса Диаби и Флориан Вирц.
У проигравшей команды единственный гол на свой лицевой счет оформил Юлиан Брандт.
После этого успеха «аспириновые» вышли на вторую строчку в турнирной таблице чемпионата Германии, имея в своем активе 32 очка.
Ранее сообщалось, что экс-наставник московского «Локомотива» Юрий Семин высказался о разрыве контракта с игроком красно-зеленых Слободаном Райковичем.
He's the former Home and Away star who has crafted an incredibly successful career in Hollywood.
But on Saturday, Simon Baker, 51, revealed that he plans to ditch filming LA blockbusters in favour of telling important stories from his home land in Australia.
The Mentalist star told The Courier Mail that filming the new epic 'High Ground' - which tells a significant story about Aboriginal culture - was one of the 'greatest privileges' of his life, and he plans to star in more on the topic in future.
Simon explained that agreeing to the role was motivated by seeing former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and opposition leader Bill Shorten's response to the Uluru Statement, which called to ensure Indigenous voices would be heard in parliament.
'I watched the way that beautiful statement of love was batted around like a political football, and it kind of disheartened me,' he said. 'I was amazed at how it was dealt with.'
When he offer came forward to star in the movie, Simon felt it could raise awareness about the culture in a way that 'we haven't yet seen in film before'.
The film itself, shot in Kakadu National Park and inspired by true events, tells the story of the aftermath of a brutal massacre of an Indigenous community.
'It's not easy to tell certain stories because people who put money into movies don't want to see those stories, or don't think it'll make money,' Simon added.
In his career, Simon has starred in a string of movies including The Devil Wears Prada, Breath, and L.A Confidential.
He has also starred as the lead in CBS shows The Mentalist as Patrick Jane, and The Guardian as Nicholas Fallin.
Simon revealed that he hopes every Australian wants to see High Ground, to 'sit with it' and learn more about the past.
The movie also stars Jack Thompson, Callan Mulvey, Caren Pistorius and Ryan Corr.
It will be released in Australian cinemas on January 28.
