The worldwide hit gameshow 5 Gold Rings launched in the UK with a brand-new series and was the best launch ever in both market share all and market share commercial. The launch episode was watched by 2.6 million viewers, almost 3 million at its peak and was #1 in market share commercial target (16-34).
The first episode was a celebrity special, in which comedian Jimmy Carr took on presenter and mathematician Rachel Riley, playing alongside members of the public to help them win a cash prize. This year viewers who played along at home could tweet their picture and get the chance to see it back on TV during the show. The show trended #5 on Twitter for a long time with hundreds of hugely positive tweets and heartwarming family photos.
