Ratings for Britain's Got Talent 2016 took a dip last night but the show was still the most watched of the day.

The Bank Holiday weekend may have had an impact on figures but none the less a strong audience of 9.3 million viewers tuned in.

It's well down on last weekend's number of 10.1 million, the same figure that 2015's equivalent show had.

The episode peaked with 10.3 million viewers as the latest auditions took place with acts ranging from the usual singers and dancers to a cross bow performer and a dodgy pole dancing duo.

Once again the shows either side of ITV didn't do much: Gameshow Bang On The Money was down 200,000 viewers week on week to 2.3 million while Play To The Whistle sunk to 2.5 million, down from last week's 3.1 million viewers.

On BBC One, Michael McIntyre's Big Show recorded a series low as 4.5 million viewers watched before BGT, down 600,000 viewers on last Saturday.

Pointless Celebrities returned with 3 million viewers while Casualty had 3.9 million.
