ITV's ratings woes continued last night as the channel struggled against tough competition.

It was reported last week that ITV's viewing figures in January were its worst on record and little has changed so far this month.

On Saturday, Harry Hill’s Stars In Their Eyes finished its series with figures of 2.2 million after Planet's Got Talent had interested fewer than 2 million viewers.

Take Me Out was the channel’s most watched show albeit with only 3.4 million viewers, compared to The Voice UK's almost 9 million audience on The Voice UK.

On Sunday and Stephen Mulhern's Get Your Act Together fell to an all new low audience of just 1.9 million viewers.

ITV's most watched programme of the day was Mr Selfridge but that had only 3.5 million viewers, down 500,000 on the week before.

The numbers compare to the 5 million viewers that the now axed Dancing On Ice had for its episode on the equivalent day in 2014.

BBC Two beat ITV with Top Gear on 5.4 million while even Channel 4 was close to overtaking as new drama Indian Summers premiered with 3 million viewers.

But it was BBC One that once again dominated the night with a new episode of Call The Midwife being watched by 9 million viewers, Countryfile posting 7.6 million and the debut of JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy securing 6.6 million viewers for the channel.
