The Voice UK 2019 came to an end last night as Britain's Got Talent launched its brand new series.

But how did both shows fare in the viewing figures?

Coaches Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Jennifer Hudson returned for the The Voice Uk's final yesterday (April 6) as The Voice 2019 winner was revealed.

An average of 4.6 million viewers (including ITV+1) tuned in for the last live show of the series as four acts competed for victory. The numbers were up significantly week-on-week with a peak audience of 5.2 million.

However the show was down around 500,000 viewers on last year's equivalent instalment, where over 5 million had tuned in.

Before The Voice's final, Britain's Got Talent launched its new series.

The opening round of auditions were watched by an average audience of 8.3 million between 7:15PM and 8:40PM.

David Walliams, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden are all back as judges once more, while Ant and Dec were reunited on the sidelines.

The episode peaked with 9.7 million viewers and was up slightly on last year's opener, which had aired a week later.

Britain's Got Talent will now takeover The Voice's timeslot, airing from 8PM next Saturday night.

Back to last night and closing Saturday's schedule for ITV was The Jonathan Ross Show which averaged just under 2 million viewers.

Earlier on in the day, the channel's coverage of The Grand National saw a peak audience of almost 10 million viewers, with an average of over 5 million.

Meanwhile, over on BBC One, coverage of the FA Cup averaged 4 million viewers before All Together Now dropped to a series low of 2.5 million against Britain's Got Talent.

Series 2 of the six-part singing contest will air its grand final next weekend. The top ten acts from the heats will return to sing again, competing for a £50,000 prize.

Finally, Casualty's latest episode interested 3.7 million viewers.
