Did your favourite show make the list?

The top 10 most watched TV shows in 2017 have been revealed.

At number one was Blue Planet II which was aired on BBC One. On October 29 the show managed to get 14.1 million views.

The wildlife series which was narrated by Sir David Attenborough included footage of walruses fighting to find a home along with dazzling scenes of surfing dolphins and a sex-changing fish.

The success of this show was enough for the BBC to hold on to its title as the home of the biggest TV audience of the year.
