The Voice UK 2013 ratings fall for second night in a row

After climbing for the first five weeks, The Voice UK 2013 suffered its second successive decline last night.

Suggesting that the battle rounds are suffering to keep viewers hooked, last night's second instalment was down 400,000 viewers on the night before.

An average audience of 7.1 million viewers tuned in from 7PM as the second set of twelve artists entered the arena.

Despite an earlier time slot, and no clash with Britain's Got Talent, it was the least watched instalment of the second series in a month.

A peak audience of 7.8 million were watching as the show drew to a close, down 400,000 on Saturday night's peak of 8.2 million viewers.

It's a worrying trend for the show, which struggled to keep viewers interested past the auditions last year.

Despite changes - including a new steal twist - being made to the format, it seems that fans still aren't being won over by the cheesy wrestling ring.

The Voice will take a break next weekend for Eurovision, before returning for a Super Battle Saturday on May 25.
