Nine out of ten Brits say they will snub Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new Netflix shows.
The royal couple put pen to paper on an unprecedented £76m deal with the streaming giant earlier this week.
Meghan and Harry, who relocated to north America for more privacy, signed on to produce documentaries and shows with the worldwide platform.
They vowed to use their new production company to create “impactful content” in the form of documentaries, feature films, children’s shows and feature films.
But it appears that most Brits will keep scrolling when the pair’s shows hit the small screens.
According to a YouGov survey, 64% of people said they were “not interested at all” in watching shows produced by the couple.
And a further 20% said they were “not very interested”, The Sun reports.
The rest said they did not know – meaning nine in ten aren’t planning in tuning in.
A total of 70% of men had no interest compared to 59% of women, and 79% of over 65s aren’t fussed either.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were 'held back' by Royal Family, biographer says
Harry and Meghan’s plans were unveiled this week with a statement claiming their new shows will “give hope”.
The Sussexes said: "Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
"As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us."
They added that Netflix's "unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action".
Netflix's chief content officer and co-chief executive Ted Sarandos said: "We're incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere."
The partnership with Netflix comes less than a year after they quit the Royal Family for a more independent life.
Netflix boasts 192million subscribers worldwide and the pair have signed on for a multi-year deal.
Harry and Meghan recently splashed out on a $14.7million home in Montecito, a town an hour north of Malibu, where the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres also live.
