Let's Dance for Comic Relief 2013 ratings are lowest ever

Let's Dance For Comic Relief 2013

There's bad news for the BBC as Let's Dance for Comic Relief 2013 has seen the show's lowest ratings ever.

This is the fifth series of the show, which first aired in 2009 on BBC One.

The show has never been a huge stand out critical hit, but ratings have been as high as 8 million viewers.

Saturday night's latest episode however was the least watched ever, with 4.5 million viewers.

The latest series had launched with a respectable 6.7 million viewers last month, but lost almost two million by its second episode.

This year has seen the show go up against the widely anticipated return of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, which is certainly denting the viewing figures.

Last weekend saw Ant and Dec's second instalment of their Saturday night telly show attract a peak audience of more than 8 million viewers, up on the launch show the week earlier.

In next week’s final, last Saturday's winners Jodie Prenger and Lee Nelson will compete against the winners from the first and second heats, Tim Vine, The Soap Stars (Ricky Groves, Claire Sweeney, Natalie Cassidy and Dean Gaffney), Antony Cotton and Katherine Ryan, in a bid to be crowned Let’s Dance for Comic Relief champion.
