Britain's Got Talent 2013 ratings: 13 million watch Simon Cowell egged!


A peak audience of more than 13 million were tuned in to the Britain's Got Talent 2013 final last night.

Last night saw Attraction win the show in the Britain's Got Talent 2013 results, topping the public vote.

But it wasn't their winning moment that had viewers watching, with the peak audience of 13.1 million viewers coming halfway through the performances earlier in the evening.

A certain egg incident is no doubt to blame!

12.5 million viewers were watching when Ant and Dec did eventually announce the result, closer to 10PM.

Overall, last night's show averaged a huge 11.1 million viewers, including those watching on ITV+1.

It was perhaps disappointingly quite down on last year's numbers, with 760,000 fewer people tuned in, but it was the highest ratings for this year's series.

Over on BBC at the same time, and the decision to move The Voice's first live show to Friday looked to be worth the impact on its ratings. BBC One averaged less than 3 million viewers during the BGT final, with ITV attracting more than 50% of all telly viewers.
