RATINGS! Strictly Come Dancing tops viewing figures as I'm A Celebrity hits series low

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 - TX12 LIVE SHOW

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 topped Saturday's TV ratings last night with its semi-final show.

With The X Factor now over, there were no clashes to contend with and Strictly made the most of it.

An audience of 10.3 million tuned in to the marathon show between 6:50PM and 8:20PM, as the final five couples each danced twice.

The episode was up 400,000 viewers on last weekend and level with last year's equivalent episode.

A peak audience of 11.3 million watched as the judges delivered their marks and phone lines opened. The latest results show will air tonight on BBC One from 7:15PM.

Earlier in the night on BBC One, Pointless Celebrities had 5.2 million viewers while after Strictly, Michael McIntyre's Big Show continued with 5.7 million viewers.

Casualty's latest instalment had 4 million viewers.

Over on ITV, I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! moved into an earlier slot and saw a dip in audience.

Just under 7 million viewers tuned in for the penultimate show of the series, down on last Saturday night and the lowest rating of the series so far.

I'm A Celebrity will conclude its run tonight with the live final airing from 9PM.

Elsewhere on ITV last night, a Through The Keyhole I'm A Celebrity special interested 2.9 million viewers from 9:40PM.
