It was never going to damage the ratings, only you and your parents ever cared about that.
If someone who most of the audience went who was the first reveal it might well have. But once you hooked it doesn't.
It is also helps that for Alan Johnson and Teddy Sherringham their occupation was so obvious people knew that if they knew their politics or football they would knew the person if they didn't they might not.
ITV clearly thinks familiarity helps the ratings otherwise they wouldn't have had the first trailer full of the most ott big names being suggested
