Dyer revealed during a recording of ITV’s ‘Jonathan Ross Show’ “I’ve been up for it three times, I got three knockbacks”. Dame Diana Rigg, another guest on Ross’ show and who plays Lady Olenna Tyrell in ‘Game of Thrones’, said “I’ll put in a word for you as long as you lose the cockney accent.”

Christmas TV Viewing Figures Down From 2011, While Eastenders Wins The Day, Again


Eastenders

The focal point of any Christmas day emits from the box of which all our furniture is pointed at: the television. Christmas telly, in the U.K at least, is famous for being paradoxically depressing, but it still pulls in the viewers.

Eastenders - as it usually does - topped viewing figures for the big day, with 9.4m soap lovers tuning in. That figure is down from last years' 9.9m, as many of the numbers are. Coronation Street, much like in 2011, came second, but unlike 2011, when it was viewed by 9.3m, only 8.6m people chose the northern sitcom as their preferred Christmas telly. This is the fourth year in a row that Eastenders has triumphed in the listings. 

Last year, Dr. Who came in third, with 8.9m, while this year's Christmas special - The Snowmen - which has been highly rated by the critics and fans alike, managed to drop over 1m viewers with 7.6m overall, placing it 5th in the chart. The Royal Family snuck into 4th with 7.7m watchers.
