Annual House Price Rise In The United Kingdom Slows But Continues In The Double Digits Business Live

07:59 According to my colleague Jasper Jolly, ITV has put the worst of the coronavirus outbreak behind it after the Euro football championships and the lifting of English restrictions resulted in its biggest monthly revenues ever in June.
The broadcaster announced total external income of PS1.6 billion for the first half of 2021 on Wednesday.
That was a 27% rise over the PS1.2 billion it earned in the same period in 2020, and a 5% increase over the year before the outbreak.
While huge firms cut back on their expenditure during the outset of the epidemic, broadcast revenues took a knock.
But, with the potential of businesses reopening, advertisers are jockeying for position in anticipation of a speedy economic revival.
England’s run to the final of the postponed Euro 2020 competition aided the cause as well.
Last month, ITV televised England’s Euro 2020 semi-final triumph against Denmark to a peak of 27.6 million viewers.
At its peak, 31 million people watched the final defeat to Italy, making it one of the most watched events in UK television history.
Despite the fact that the BBC had the majority of viewers, ITV recorded 6 million viewers plus further 4.2 million online streaming requests.
ITV, on the other hand, warned that there would be a lot of uncertainty ahead.
The Delta version of the coronavirus continues to be prevalent in the UK, however case counts have decreased in the recent week.
