Britain’s Got Talent 2019 continued to top Saturday night’s viewing figures last night (May 25).
The 13th series aired its final audition episode this weekend ahead of the live shows starting on Monday.
The BGT 2019 semi-finalists were then unveiled by the judges on Saturday and in true form the usual cliches were out in force.
“You’re going home… to work on your acts,” David Walliams told one group.
An average audience of 6 million viewers watched the semi-finalists revealed, topping Saturday’s viewing figures.
The Britain’s Got Talent live shows begin each week night on Monday, May 27 at 7:30PM with the first line up of acts already confirmed. Each night two contestants will go forward to the grand final on Sunday, June 2.
Before Britain’s Got Talent, Stephen Mulhern’s new Saturday Night Takeaway spin-off In For A Penny concluded its seven-episode run.
The 30 minute game show, which sees wacky games with up to £1,000 to be won, averaged 2.8 million for its opening episode. Overall the debut series averaged 3 million viewers across its run.
Later, Piers Morgan’s Life Stories returned for its new series with 2.8 million viewers.
In the first episode, Spice Girl Mel B exclusively revealed the secrets of her time as a Spice Girl, including a bombshell revelation about the nature of her relationship with Geri.
She also opened up about her suicide attempts, her battles with drugs and alcohol and her recent divorce.
Over on BBC One last night, new game show The Hit List debuted with 2.7 million viewers.
Hosted by Rochelle & Marvin Humes, it sees £10,000 up for grabs to contestants who have to identify songs as quickly as possible.
Meanwhile, the latest episode of Casualty averaged 3 million viewers.
