Wallace and Gromit

Doctor Who may have defeated the Cybermen on Christmas Day, but he couldn't beat Wallace and Gromit.

Their brand new programme - A Matter of Loaf and Death - was the most popular TV programme on Christmas Day with 14.4 million people tuning in.

EastEnders was the second most-viewed and the Doctor Who Christmas special was the third most popular.

Only one of the top 10 most-watched shows on the day WASN'T on the BBC - ITV1's Coronation Street special.

As well as topping the chart, Wallace and Gromit also starred in the seventh most popular programme - their film the Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
