Britain's Got Talent 2016 ratings stay above 10 million viewers

Latest BGT viewing figures

Bespoke Candi on Britain's Got Talent

Another audience of more than 10 million viewers tuned in to last night's Britain's Got Talent.

An average of 10.2 million watched the third round of auditions which included musical impressions, an upside down piano player and a dancing dinosaur.

The figure is down a smidgen on last week's number (10.3 million) and slightly down on 2015's figure (10.5 million) but up slightly on 2014's ratings (10.1 million)

A peak audience of 11.2 million viewers watched the try outs - and another golden buzzer act get chosen - as the programme continues to prove a consistent ratings hit in its tenth year.

Last week's episode became the most watched show of 2016 so far based on overnight figures, proving Britain still has got talent ten years on after the first series.

But unfortunately for ITV, Britain's Got Talent's huge numbers are seemingly doing nothing for their other shows: Game show Bang On The Money had 2.5 million viewers (down 700,000 on last week) before BGT while Play To The Whistle secured 3.1 million afterwards (down 100,000).

Over on BBC One and Michael McIntyre's Big Show increased on last week's premiere figure of 4.9 million to post a strong audience of 5.1 million viewers.

The National Lottery had 2.6 million while Casualty secured 3.9 million
