Dancing On Ice 2013 ratings lose a million viewers


Bad news for Dancing On Ice 2013 bosses this morning as the show shed even more viewers.

7.77 million viewers tuned in to last weekend's first live show, making it the least watched launch ever in the eight series of the programme.

And last night's second performance show saw less than 7 million watching from 18:15PM.

The second half of the line up skated for the judges for the first time, and in the Dancing On Ice 2013 results it was Anthea Turner and Lauren who ended up in the skate off after the judges' scores were combined with the public votes.

The better news however is that the results show held up a lot better, losing just 200,000 viewers on last week.

However nearly 400,000 who watched the performances didn't bother to return 30 minutes later to see who left.

Meanwhile, Celebrity Big Brother 2013 continued on Channel 5 with its solid ratings.

Last night's latest highlights show put in 2.2 million viewers from 9PM.

Sky1's new series of Got To Dance also continued, with the two latest audition shows averaging less than one million viewers for a second week.

Next weekend's third live show will see the remaining ten celebs - Oona King, Luke Campbell, Joe Pasquale, Gareh Thomas, Beth Tweddle, Samia Ghadie, Matt Lapkinskas, Shayne Ward, Anthea Turner and Keith Chegwin - skate for the first time.

But in a twist, they'll face The Duel which first appeared on last year's show.
