Dancing On Ice's latest live show saw an average audience of more than 5 million viewers.

The remaining eight celebrities skated live for the fifth time in Dancing On Ice's sixth episode of 2019 last night (Sunday, February 10).


Following each of the celeb's latest live performances, it was TOWIE's Gemma Collins who was voted off Dancing On Ice 2019 after the skate off against cricketer Ryan Sidebottom.

In the skate off, judges Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean, Jason Gardiner and Ashley Banjo decided who to save after the couples skated again.

Jason, Ashley and Jayne all saved Ryan, leaving Gemma to go home. Although his casting vote was not needed, head judge Chris also saved Ryan.

The skating and results between 6PM and 8PM averaged 5.5 million viewers on ITV, according to overnight figures. The show peaked with just under 7 million viewers.

The figure is down slightly on last weekend's number by 100,000 viewers but is up a notable 700,000 on 2018's equivalent episode.

Dancing On Ice was the the most watched show of the whole weekend, topping both Sunday and Saturday night's viewing figures.

After Dancing On Ice, Endeavour returned to ITV for its brand new series with an average audience of 5 million viewers, matching last year's series premiere.


Elsewhere on Sunday, the BAFTAs averaged 3.5 million as films including The Favourite, Roma and A Star Is Born competed for top gongs.

The awards show on BBC One from 9PM was down around 500,000 viewers on 2018, the lowest rating in at least a decade for the ceremony based on overnight numbers.
