Anna Ryder Richardson beats the Queen
Despite all its recent controversy, the BBC’s much-anticipated documentary on the Royal Family lost out to ITV’s I’m A Celebrity….Get Me Out of Here! in the Monday night ratings war.
In comparison to the 6.7 million viewers who tuned in to see the monarchy at work, the jungle reality show attracted an audience of 7.9 million.
The latest episode of I’m A Celebrity saw the former Changing Rooms presenter Anna Ryder Richardson get the boot from the Australian wilderness after losing out in a public vote against Jason ‘J’ Brown.
The 43-year old was relieved to be leaving the show after a 16-day stint, which saw her share a rat-infested pit with fellow celebrity Christopher Biggins for a whole night in order to win a cooked breakfast for the camp.
“The jungle is fantastic,” she told hosts Ant and Dec.
“It’s kind of a prison. Even though it’s a beautiful prison.”
However, despite earlier teasing Cerys Matthews about the matter, she refused to divulge any information concerning the former Catatonia singer’s relationship with Marc Bannerman.
