Episode 1 of the new series of Ackley Bridge, currently transmitting on C4, has consolidated with half a million 16-34 year olds tuning in, earning an 18% share and making it Channel 4’s highest rating 16-34 drama so far this year.

The 8pm drama, set in a school that merges an all-white school with an all-Asian one in a tough Yorkshire mill town, continues to speak to a young, diverse audience right across the UK.  Series 2 which transmitted in 2018, more than doubled C4’s 16-24 peak-time share and also increased the BAME audience by 43% against slot average.
