Britain's Got Talent viewing figures stay strong but Big Brother takes a dip

Lorraine Bowen

The ratings for Britain's Got Talent 2015 continued on top form last night with another 10 million viewers.

An average audience of 10.2 million tuned in to the fifth round of auditions on ITV, the same figure as last week.

This year's series has been remarkably consistent with every episode so far rating 10.1 million viewers or more and it has officially become the most watched show of the year so far.

It's numbers are well up on last year with the equivalent show in 2014 having a million viewers less compared to last night.

A peak of 11.4 million viewers tuned in for the penultimate round of auditions yesterday evening ahead of the live semi-finals beginning next Monday (May 25).

However while BGT continued its success, Channel 5's Big Brother numbers have been a bit up and down.

Friday's latest live show held an impressive 1.4 million strong audience as a second Timebomb twist was unveiled by Saturday's episode - which have always struggled - posted figures of less than a million viewers.

It was beaten in the 9:20PM slot last night by BGT's ITV2 spin-off More Talent, which again secured more than a million viewers.

Big Brother airs nightly on Channel 5 while the Britain's Got Talent auditions conclude next weekend on ITV.
