60" crt. That's why I bought a 12" wide shelf
If you get the angle right it will be fine.

If you try to guess, like Id probably do, youll end up having to shave bits off

As you can see, what should be a 90 degree angle has downs syndrome and there is an inch between it and the tip of the shelf.

If it is 1" gap at the back measure 1" across front of shelf scribe back to rear corner of shelf mark with pencil cut said line >>> done I believe it was called Algebra 70 yrs ago>

Got some of those b&q shelves recently. The cheapest in the shop

Had a similar issue. Managed to fit it anyway but you could always sand down one side.
