Dancing On Ice 2013 ratings remain steady... but few care about the results

Dancing On Ice 2013's ratings were pretty static this week, which will no doubt please producers.

After losing a million viewers between the first and second live shows, seemingly no one tuned out this week, with 7 million viewers watching the latest results show.

It was in line with last week's show although nearly a million viewers down on the series launch at the start of the month.

However the return of Call The Midwife on BBC One - which had over 9.3 million viewers - hurt the results show.

Almost two million viewers who watched the Duel performances last night didn't bother to return to see which two of the celebs were in the bottom two and who was going home.

Even with a special performance from X Factor champs Little Mix, just 5.3 million viewers watched as Oona King bowed out of the competition in a dramatic skate off that saw her pro partner dislocate his shoulder live on the ice.

Meanwhile, Celebrity Big Brother continued to do 'OK' with another 2.2 million viewers watching the latest house action.

Moved to Channel 5 from digital channel 5*, Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side achieved one of its highest weekend ratings ever as 842,000 watched the spin-off show hosted by Alice and Jamie.
