‘The Estate’ still popular with viewers

BBC Northern Ireland’s TV series about life in Ballysally ‘The Estate’ continues to draw in the viewers.

Despite initial criticism of the Monday evening series from many residents of the Coleraine estate, viewers are still switching on to check out the lives of Martin and his dog Bobby, Emma, Kyle and Kellie Anne.

On the week it first aired, ‘The Estate’ brought in more than 340,000 viewers - more than ITV’s network show Dancing on Ice.

Since then, ‘The Estate’ has stayed popular with viewers.

A BBC Northern Ireland spokesperson said: “Episode one had a viewing audience of 341,000, with 298,000 tuning in for episode two.

“Episode three had an audience of 267,000. Provisional viewing figures for episode four currently show an audience of 290,000.”
