The Voice UK ratings 2018: Viewing figures up on last year's numbers

The Voice UK coaches

The Voice UK ratings for 2018 are on the up ahead of the live final this weekend.

Last Saturday night's semi-final was the most watched in three years, since the 2015 series on BBC One.

What's more, it's the first time that The Voice UK has seen viewing figures increase for the live stages.

So far The Voice UK 2018 is averaging 5.2 million viewers, based on overnight numbers. These include those who watch and catch up on the night, but not those who catch up later.

2017's series averaged 4.9 million viewers up to the same point.

Following last weekend's live semi-final, four contestants remain on The Voice 2018.

In The Voice UK final for Team Tom is 18-year-old student Ruti Olajugbagbe from Essex. On Team Jennifer is Belle Voci, a duo made up of friends 26-year-old Sophie from Norwich and 25-year-old Emily from Mayfair.

Team Will's finalist is 16-year-old student Donel Mangena from Southampton. Lastly, on Team Olly is 27-year-old student Lauren Bannon from Weymouth.

They'll perform with their coaches, while the coaches will also perform a group number together.

Also during the final, the top two acts will perform their favourite song of the series – with the winner’s being released straight after the show as part of their prize of a life-changing record deal with Polydor.

The current series of The Voice UK airs its live episode this Saturday, April 7 from 8:30PM on ITV.

The show has already been confirmed to return for another series in 2019.
