ITV viewers struggling to sleep after bingeing ‘ridiculous’ new show


Viewers are eating up ITV’s latest offering

A new thriller series on ITV has got viewers hooked, with some saying they’re staying up all night to finish the six part series.

Red Eye launched on Sunday evening, and stars TV favourite and Fool Me Once actor Richard Armitage alongside Argylle and Crazy Rich Asians star Jing Lusi.

The official series synopsis reads: “Jing Lusi and Richard Armitage star in a race against time at 30,000 feet. When a man is flown back to China to answer his ‘crimes’, he finds himself in a deadly conspiracy.”

Armitage plays Matthew, who is accused of murder while in Beijing. When he lands back in London, he ends up in the hands of DC Hana Li, and the story goes on from there.

Viewers have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the new series, and people are loving it.

“I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the new thrilling show Red Eye on @ITVX,” one person wrote. “After watching 3 episodes, I must say that it has been a brilliant experience so far.”

A second put: “I didn’t sleep until two o’clock in the morning, but I watched until the most magnificent ending. Intense, exciting and captivating.”

While a third penned: “No way I’m waiting until next Sunday for next episode of the ITV drama Red Eye. Over to ITV X.”

A fourth put: “@ITV just binge watched all of Red Eye. Omg it was fantastic. Fab watch. You won’t be disappointed.”
