The Voice UK ratings improve as 9 million watch episode two

The Voice UK

The Voice UK continued its brilliant start in the ratings last night, improving on last week's 8.4 million debut to be watched by an average audience of just fewer than 9 million.

8.9 million viewers - a 500,000 increase on last week - tuned into yesterday's second blind audition show.

Rival Britain's Got Talent however won the night once again, averaging a healthy 10.3 million, increasing its lead over The Voice by 400,000.

During the 20 minute overlap between the two shows however The Voice did win by two million viewers, a decrease in last week's 3.3 million gap.

Despite the press reports of a rivalry it seems that both shows are helping one another out, with last night's BGT up over a million viewers on last year's instalment.

Both shows continue their audition episodes next Saturday night.
