ITV's Victoria, starring Jenna Coleman as the 18 year old monarch, took 30% of the audience share on Sunday night, beating the BBC's remake of Are You Being Served?.

ITV has invested huge sums into the eight part drama, and creator Daisy Goodwin has said she'd be 'flattered' if it enjoyed the same success as Downtown Abbey.
