Taking to the feedback, some followers shared why they wished their ‘beloved’ present to be saved.

One wrote: ‘It’s been the one factor value watching on TV for me since about 2010. I genuinely wish to cancel by BBC TV licence if this doesn’t keep on air because it’s actually the one factor I ever watch on TV. All the things else is Gaming, YouTube or Netflix.’
