The see-sawing battle for breakfast television viewers continues. Just a month ago, The Big Breakfast had closed the gap (measured in quarter-hour audience peaks) on GMTV, from over a million at the start of the year to 100,000. Latest figures show the gap has widened to 800,000, with GMTV on 2.2 million, its largest audience in its four-month screen life.

The best result over Easter was for C4's Easter Sunday film, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure: the film's audience of 7.29 million was C4's largest of the year.

After a week's break, and with three months until close-down, Eldorado is back in the BBC 1 Top 30 with 7.15 million viewers.
