I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here was the top rating program outside news with an average metro audience of 891,000 viewers. It topped ratings for 25 to 54-year-olds and under 55s, and is up 28% on last year's episode five.

Nine News at 6.30 won the night with 992,000 metro viewers, while RBT (591,000) and King's Cross ER (534,000) had modest starts to their seasons. 

In last night's episode of I'm A Celeb, Shane Warne opened up about some of the difficulties he faced in his recent relationship with Liz Hurley.

“It’s hard in a new relationship when you’re really good friends with the ex. Like, Elizabeth was really good friends with Hugh [Grant], like a best friend. When I used to go back to Australia, if she wasn’t leaving London, he used to go and spend the weekend in the house.”

The legendary legspinner says he would have to fall head over heels with someone to consider having more children. 

“The only way I could do it, is if I absolutely fell for someone head over heels, if I was desperate for them, and if they said ‘I really want kids’, then I would consider it.”

Nine's News programming helped it top market share with 27.2% of the audience over MKR-less Seven (25.1%) and Ten (22.5%).
