Doctor Who's regeneration was the most-watched Christmas Day television moment with 10.2 million viewers seeing the five-minute sequence on BBC One.

However Mrs Brown's Boys Christmas Special, also on BBC One, was the most-watched programme with an average of 9.4 million viewers.

An average of 8.3 million watched Matt Smith bow out as the Doctor while ITV's Coronation Street averaged 7.9 million.

It beat rival BBC soap EastEnders for the first time in more than 10 years.

BBC One had eight of the top 10 most watched programmes while ITV had four - the channels shared the Queen's Christmas broadcast and the news on each channel shared 10th place.

BBC One controller Charlotte Moore said: "Nothing brings the country together at Christmas quite like BBC One. Huge audiences shared the Christmas Day schedule on the nation's favourite channel."
