With 2020 drawing to an end, Currys PC World have taken a look back on some of the most iconic and memorable TV moments of 2020..

  • David Attenborough appealed to the public to save our planet in his heartfelt documentary film A Life on Our Planet
  • Joe Exotic became an international sensation as Tiger King united millions over lockdown
  • Some of the top-rated TV shows of 2020 listed on JustWatch include the BBC’s I May Destroy You and Normal People, ITV’s Quiz, Netflix’s The Last Dance and the Queen’s Gambit, and Prime Video’s Little Fires Everywhere

With national lockdowns restricting us to our homes, TV has played a pivotal role in uniting the nation in 2020. While filming of new content ground to halt earlier in the year, fortunately many fixtures have returned, including reality TV favourites Strictly Come DancingThe Great British Bake Off and I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here. These saw the first single-sex dance couple hit the ballroom (boxer Nicola Adams OBE and dancer Katya Jones), Peter Sawkins take the title of best British amateur baker, and BBC R1’s Jordan North go to his “happy place” aka Turf Moor (the home of Burnley FC) as part of a positive visualisation trick to get over his fear.

Plus, like always, there have been a number of TV blunders and hilarious moments to reflect back on. One of the funniest highlights includes a BBC news snippet featuring a child gate-crashing her mother’s video interview – something I’m sure a lot of home-workers can relate to. The video has now been viewed nearly 2 million times on the official BBC YouTube accounts. And talking of viral clips, a snippet taken from Celebrity Mastermind became a social media meme, after actress Amanda Henderson was asked the name of teenage environmentalist activist Greta Thunberg and cluelessly answered “Sharon”.
