Youngsters can now enjoy a daily dose of fun and adventures with their favourite tank engine as Thomas & Friends is to begin airing seven days a week on Channel 5's Milkshake.

The show will be viewable on weekdays at 6:50am and weekends at 7:00am.

Series 21, the latest series which launched last year, sees Thomas and his fellow engines embark on a new series of exciting journeys. In 2017, Thomas & Friends reached a total of 4.8 million viewers including 1.4 million kids on Milkshake. It was also the preschool programming block’s best year for share among kids aged four-15 years-old, up 16 per cent year on year.

“We are delighted that Thomas & Friends fans can now tune into the show seven days a week and that it continues to remain a popular hit for pre-schoolers,” commented Wendy Hill, brand activation at Mattel UK.

The term evergreen is probably used too easily when it comes to many brands. Really there are very few which qualify. Thomas the Tank Engine, however, certainly does qualify.
