The Voice 2013 final saw over 7 million viewers watching last night, one of the highest figures of the series.

Andrea Begley won the series in the final results, a shock outcome given how backed favourite Leah McFall had been.

The two hour long finale was seen by an average audience of 7.2 million viewers, making it the only episode of this year's show to be up slightly on the equivalent episode from last year.

A huge peak audience of just under 9 million viewers tuned in for the final result revealed, slightly down on last year's peak.

The show was the most watched programme on telly last night, with BBC One easily winning the night over weak ITV opposition.

Meanwhile over on Channel 5, the latest instalment of Big Brother 2013 highlights - which immediately followed The Voice - could only muster an audience just above 1 million, a series low.

But around half of those viewers did stick around for Bit On The Side hosted by AJ an hour later.
