An average audience of just under 6 million viewers watched the Dancing On Ice 2019 final.

Sunday night saw the last episode of this year's Dancing On Ice final as the latest winner was crowned after ten weeks of competition.

Going into the final were Love Island's Wes Nelson & pro partner Vanessa Bauer, singer Saara Aalto & pro skater Hamish Gaman and dancer James Jordan & professional Alexandra Schauman.

In the first half of the final's results, after two performances from all of the celebrity couples, Saara was eliminated leaving James and Wes as the top two. They went on to perform once more, skating to the iconic Bolero.

It was then announced that it was James who won Dancing On Ice 2019, beating Wes to victory. James joins fellow Dancing On Ice winners Gaynor Faye, Kyran Bracken, Suzanne Shaw, Ray Quinn, Hayley Tamaddon, Sam Attwater, Matthew Wolfenden, Beth Tweddle, Ray Quinn and Jake Quickenden.

The final was seen by an average audience of 5.7 million viewers on ITV between 6PM and 8PM.

The instalment was up both week-on-week and year-on-year, with the series as a whole averaging 5.5 million viewers based on overnight figures.

Dancing On Ice was the most watched TV show on Sunday night, just eclipsing Countryfile on BBC One, which had 5.4 million viewers.

In fact, Dancing On Ice was the most watched show of the entire weekend, also getting the better of Saturday's Six Nations rugby matches.

With all that in mind, its no surprise that ITV has already confirmed Dancing On Ice will be back again in 2020.

Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield made the announcement in Sunday's live final.

Meanwhile, after the ice skating competition last night, Midsomer Murders' new series began with just under 5 million viewers on ITV. Another new episode will air next Sunday night.

On BBC One, Baptiste at 9PM continued with just under 4 million viewers. The fifth of six episodes continues next weekend.
