Star Life Ok’s huge cookery reality TV show ‘Welcome Baazi Mehmaan Nawaazi ki’, the Indian version of British show ‘Come Dine With Me’, has witnessed a huge jump in its ratings.

According to exclusive UK viewing data for last night obtained by BizAsia from Attentional, ‘Welcome’ was by far the most watched show on the channel with a huge 65,600 – nearly twice the audience the show was receiving last week. The significant jump could be down to Star TV UK’s recent marketing campaign surrounding the show. It peaked further to 80,700 viewers later in the show.

‘Devon Ka Dev Mahadev’ at 19:30 and 20:00 was the second most watched show on the channel with an impressive 37,500 and 35,000 respectively.
