The network took their revenue over the £300million mark for the first time last year, which left them with £82million in earnings before other costs, it was announced on 12 April.  

Executives claim they have capitalised on the strong television advertising market. They also say a 20% increase in investment in original content helped boost viewing figures.

Upcoming original UKTV shows include a brand new series of cult hit Red Dwarf, an original chat show John Bishop: In Conversation With..., and the continuation of Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled.
