Over on ITV and Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway dropped for a consecutive week to a new series low of 6.4 million viewers, although this is up quite a bit on last year's figure of 5.8 million.

Despite being down on last week, Ant and Dec's show - which featued Craig David and Leona Lewis - won the night with Match of The Day on BBC One scoring 4.3 million viewers while Casualty interested 4.8 million.

Elsewhere, the new series of You're Back In The Room managed 3.8 million viewers on ITV with the Six Nations rugby match between England and Wales watched by 5.2 million.
