Rather than just looking at the papers, would https://pressgazette.co.uk/uk-news-market-share/ be a more useful article?
The BBC is very much the 800-lb gorilla in terms of how people in the UK get their news. 60% of adults get news from BBC1 every week. Whereas the most popular newspaper (the free Metro) has a circulation of around 1m. Even put together I'd be surprised if the readership of print newspapers was over 10% of the adult population.

But at the same time, the BBC do cover newspaper headlines as part of their news coverage, those headlines are also visible in pretty any shop you walk into and those newspapers do still have websites that are heavily visited.
So to some degree those thing added together would amplify those headlines so they are potentially spread much more than you'd expect just based on the newspaper circulation.

The seven above Daily Mail bikini "news stories" are all from this afternoon and evening.
Again it is assumed that these pictures are fine as they don't show a nipple.
But these images harm how men see women and how women see themselves.
Sounds like Bernard Woolley should have said "Daily Mail readers don't care who runs the country as long as she's got big t*ts", not The Sun.
