Ratings for Dancing On Ice 2019 took a dip for a second week in Sunday's viewing figures.

The remaining five celebrities skated live for the seventh time in Dancing On Ice's eighth episode of 2019 last night (Sunday, February 24)


Following each of the celeb's latest live performances, the bottom two couples were revealed as Saara & her pro partner Hamish Gaman and Melody Thornton & her pro skater Alexander Demetriou.

The judging panel then chose who to save and who to send home and it was Melody who left Dancing On Ice 2019 this week.

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

Jason, Ashley and Jayne all saved Saara, leaving Melody to go home. Although his casting vote was not needed, head judge for the week Chris also saved Saara.

The skating and results between 6PM and 8PM averaged 4.7 million viewers on ITV, according to overnight figures.

The number is down around 300,000 viewers on last week's episode and 800,000 below the week before that, where Gemma Collins was eliminated.

Dancing On Ice continues next Sunday night with its Semi Finals where the celebrities will be dancing two routines each in a bid to make the grand final in March.

After Dancing On Ice, Endeavour continued on ITV with its brand new series with an average audience of 4.6 million viewers, rising slightly week-on-week.


Elsewhere on Sunday, in the 9PM hour, new BBC One drama Baptiste dropped to less than 4 million viewers from last week's premiere audience of 4.5 million. The new six-part series from the creators of The Missing, stars Tchéky Karyo as the insightful but stubborn investigator Julien Baptiste.

Call The Midwife proved to be the biggest show of the weekend, averaging 7 million viewers.
