The Greatest Dancer's live shows continued with over 3 million viewers on TV last night (Saturday 9 February).

Dance captains Cheryl, Oti Mabuse and Matthew Morrison returned with their contestants in another bid to win over viewer votes.

It was the second week of the challenge shows this weekend and eight acts remained - but TWO were seen heading home in the Greatest Dancer results.

Hosted by Jordan Banjo and Alesha Dixon, the latest episode entertained an average audience of 3.4 million between 7:35PM and 9:10PM on BBC One, matching last weekend's instalment.

The live challenge shows continue next Saturday night before concluding the weekend after with a grand final. Acts are competing to win £50,000, a chance to dance on Strictly Come Dancing and become The Greatest Dancer.

Meanwhile, The Voice UK's blind auditions continued on ITV from 8PM with an average audience of 4.7 million viewers, a slight dip on last Saturday.

A total of nine contestants sung for a spin on The Voice this week and 5 of them got the turn they were after. Successful auditionees for Team Will included 22-year-old Nyema Kalfon from Winchester, who performed ‘Answerphone’ by Banx & Ranx and Ella Eyre, and 16-year-old Gabriel Dryss from London. She auditioned with ‘Treasure’ by Bruno Mars

Team Jhud saw ranks boosted by Gisela Green, a 27-year-old from London who performed ‘Best Part’ by Daniel Caesar while joining Team Olly was 21-year-old Georgia Bray from Cannock, who performed ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry at the blind auditions. Finally, winning a place on Team Tom was 23-year-old Deana from Liverpool after singing ‘Back to Black’ by Amy Winehouse.

Neither of the talent shows managed to top the night's ratings: Instead it was the latest celebrity special of BBC One game show Pointless that won the evening, with just under 5 million tuning in.

Meanwhile, Dermot O'Leary's new game show Small Fortune continued with just below 2.5 million viewers.
