Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway was once again the most watched show on Saturday night according to the latest UK TV ratings.

Overnight viewing figures show last night's Saturday Night Takeaway had 6.8 million viewers, a slight drop of 200,000 from last weekend's second episode.

Despite the slight week-on-week decline, it was the most watched show of the night by some margin - the Six Nations Rugby had 5.4 million viewers - and had a peak audience of 7.7 million viewers.

Over on BBC One, Let's Sing and Dance for Comic Relief continued on BBC One with its second heat stable on last week with an average audience of 3.4 million.

The show previously aired back in 2013 then as Let's Dance but has returned for this year's Red Nose Day with singing added to the mix.

The second of three live heats last night, which saw another two celebrities voted into the final at the end of this month, was watched by a peak audience of 3.6 million.

Meanwhile, following Saturday Night Takeaway, The Voice UK's latest live knockout round show was down to 4.6 million viewers.

The number is the lowest rating for a Saturday episode of the series so far, dropping a further 500,000 viewers on last Saturday's low, but is well up on last Sunday's episode which had 3.8 million viewers.

On BBC One on the equivalent last year, the round of knock outs - which weren't live and didn't feature a public vote - had 5.3 million viewers.

The Voice UK returns to ITV tonight for its latest Sunday episode of this year's show with the fourth and final live knockout round show.
