The Split premieres on BBC One, but do viewers want to stay with it or break up?

BBC One launched its new drama The Split tonight (April 24) and its shocks really got viewers talking.

The series – from writer Abi Morgan – focuses on a family of lawyer sisters, the Defoes, who rule London’s divorce scene.

Eldest daughter Hannah (Nicola Walker) found herself facing a frosty reception from her mum Ruth (Deborah Findlay) following her decision to leave the family firm for rivals Noble & Hale.

The Split continues next Tuesday (May 1) at 9pm on BBC One.
