BBC One drops junction between Strictly and The Wheel

BBC One tonight dropped a prime time junction, between Strictly Come Dancing and the new Michael McIntyre game show, The Wheel.

The channel has been heavily promoting The Wheel in recent weeks.

Skipping a junction in such a prime spot is a very rare event. Although clearly a reaction to the threat posed by ITV’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, it is very unusual for a broadcaster to feel the need to ditch the promotional opportunities on offer in the gap that (usually) sits between programmes.

The early ratings will make interesting reading.
