RATINGS! Saturday Night Takeaway, The Voice UK and more viewing figures

Team Olly: Shane v Ivy.

Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway was again the top show on TV last night.

However numbers were down by over a million on last Saturday night, as 6.7 million tuned in for the 101st episode.


It's 1.1 million fewer than the 7.8 million who watched last week's landmark 100th instalment, and also 100,000 below 2016's equivalent episode.

But with a peak audience of 7.7 million watching, it was still the most watched programme on TV over the weekend.

On ITV after SNT, The Voice UK dropped to a series low for the last of its battle rounds.

Olly Murs joins the show this year alongside returning coaches Sir Tom Jones, and Jennifer Hudson.

An average of 4.8 million viewers (including ITV+1) tuned in for the final of three battle episodes. A decrease of 300,000 viewers on last weekend's numbers but up 300,000 on 2016's equivalent show.

After The Voice, Piers Morgan's Life Stories with Jim Davidson interested 3 million, up 600,000 viewers on last weekend's episode with Pamela Anderson.


Over on BBC One, Pointless Celebrities kicked off the night with 3.4 million, down over a million on last Saturday.

Casualty had 3.7 million, down 400,000 on last weekend, while new drama Troy: Fall of a City dropped to 1.6 million from the previous week's figure of 1.9 million and well below the opening figure of 3.2 million.
