The Queen’s Christmas Broadcast was the most watched TV program on Christmas Day, overnight viewing figures show.

A combined audience of 6.4 million watched her annual message on BBC One, ITV, Sky One and Sky News.

Overnight figures include people who watched a program live or on catch-up on TV before 02:00 GMT on 26 December but not those watching on-demand services on smartphones and computers.

The Queen used her Christmas broadcast to say that the message of “peace on Earth and goodwill to all” was “needed as much as ever”.
