Telly fans are calling for one big change to new ITV show Absolutely India: Mancs in Mumbai after the first episode wowed viewers last night.
Getting underway last night (Wednesday, April 29), the show proved a hit. Viewers loved the Thomases’ relationship and praised them for being a joy to watch.
Such was the outpouring of praise for the programme that viewers all had just one complaint – it’s not on for long enough!
On Twitter, they called for a switch-up in the show’s format.
One said: “Brilliant show!! Half an hour isn’t long enough. #mancsinmumbai.”
Gutted it was only on for half a hour!
Another wrote: “Half hour wasn’t long enough for #mancsinmumbai, loved it.”
“#mancsinmumbai the best start to the series,” tweeted a third, adding: “I was gutted it was only on for half a hour!”

In the first episode, the Thomas brothers visited the school once attended by their grandfather, Dougie’s dad, who was born in Mumbai.
A crash course in Mancunian
After hearing a few words in the local language from the schoolchildren, Ryan and his brothers decided to give them a crash course in speaking authentic Mancunian.
“We want to teach you a bit of our English, from Manchester. So if we’re saying hello to our brothers, our family, we say, ‘Hello, our kid’.”
The class chorused back: “Hello our kid!”
Scott then told the gathered youngsters, “If we think something’s good we say, ‘It’s sick that'” and the foursome burst out laughing as the pupils repeated the phrase.
– Ryan and his family return to screens for part two of Absolutely India: Mancs in Mumbai on Wednesday (May 6) at 8pm on ITV
