RATINGS! The Voice UK continues to lead The Greatest Dancer in Saturday viewing figures

The Voice UK 2019 week 2 coaches

The Voice UK is continuing to lead The Greatest Dancer in Saturday night's TV ratings.

BBC One's The Greatest Dancer, from Simon Cowell and the makers of X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, premiered at the start of this month.

Presented by current BGT judge Alesha Dixon and Diversity star Jordan Banjo, the format features a trio of dance captains - singer Cheryl, Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse and Broadway star Matthew Morrison - overseeing the contestants.

The show opened with 4.7 million viewers but episode three on Saturday night saw just under 4 million turning in, based on overnight figures.

Over on ITV and The Voice UK continued with its blind auditions at the same time.

Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones are all back as coaches for the eighth series of the singing show, again hosted by Emma Willis.

The Voice UK rose slightly week-on-week, recording a figure of 5 million viewers for its third round of blind auditions.

Next week will see The Greatest Dancer move to a slightly earlier time slot, airing from 7:30PM on BBC One while The Voice UK will continue next Saturday night at 8PM on ITV.

The Voice 2019 last night proved to be the most watched show across all channels on Saturday, eclipsing Michael McIntyre's Big Show.

An end-of-series compilation episode interested 4.3 million viewers. The show is expected to return to BBC One at the end of the year.
