Strictly Come Dancing beats I'm A Celebrity final in mammoth ratings battle

Latest X Factor and Strictly viewing figures


Over 10 million viewers watched last night's I'm A Celebrity 2016 final.

But the mega ratings weren't the best of the night with Strictly Come Dancing going even bigger.

Last night's Strictly results were seen by an average audience of 10.7 million viewers, up 200,000 on last year and 1.4 million on 2014.

A peak audience of 11.7 million tuned in for the latest dance off as another celebrity bowed out of the competition.

Afterwards and the latest instalment of Planet Earth 2 couldn't quite break the 10 million barrier, averaging a still huge 9.7 million viewers from 8PM.

The nature doc once again crushed The X Factor over on ITV which had 6.3 million viewers, down 400,000 on last year and 2 million below 2014's same show. However it was up 200,000 viewers on last week's low when Honey G left.

At 9PM, the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here final averaged 10.5 million viewers on ITV, up 800,000 viewers on last year.

A peak audience of 11.4 million tuned in at 10:20PM when hosts Ant and Dec revealed the winner. On ITV2 straight after, 1.4 million viewers tuned in to spin-off show Extra Camp.

Overall the latest series of I'm A Celebrity has - once again - proved a huge hit.

An average audience of close to 10 million tuned in every night for the three-week run.

No wonder why it's already been confirmed for at least three more years...
