We have the nation’s attention. It may sound like a bold claim, but with our shows reaching 38.5m people a week, it’s true! But there’s more to ITV than the numbers; more than the country’s favourite shows; more than the presenters that make you laugh out loud every morning.

We’re at the heart of popular culture. We drive those “omg did you watch last night?” moments; those “I can’t believe he did that!” WhatsApp chats; those “you must catch up!” lunch break conversations. We’re home to the nation’s favourite street, the world’s most love-filled island, and a jungle that any celebrity would want to escape from. We’re more than TV; we have the power to shape culture and drive action.
