Thomas & Friends to air 7 days a week on Milkshake


With Thomas & Friends beginning to air seven days a week on Channel 5’s Milkshake, youngsters can now enjoy a daily dose of fun and adventures with their favourite tank engine. The show can be viewed on weekdays at 6:50 am and weekends at 7:00 am.


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 between four and 15, 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.
