Last night's episode of The Nightly Show on ITV dropped to a new low in the TV ratings.

The second instalment of this fourth week - with guest host Dermot O'Leary - managed less than a million viewers at 10PM.

The number is down 700,000 viewers on Monday's show, which was the lowest weekly opener since the series began, and below the previous record low set last Tuesday of a million viewers.

Dermot will remain in charge until Friday night before Gordon Ramsey takes over, with the pair following in the footsteps of Davina McCall, John Bishop and David Walliams.

Earlier in the evening on ITV before The Nightly Show, Play to the Whistle had fewer than 1.7 million at 9PM while Emmerdale had 6 million viewers.

Over on BBC One, EastEnders posted 6 million and 4.8 million viewers for its two episodes of the evening while Holby City had 4.7 million inbetween.

Channel 5 had quite the result as they ranked second in the 9PM hour with 1.7 million watching Yorkshire: a Year in the Wild.

Meanwhile, on Channel 4 at the same time, 1.5 million continued with Mutiny after 1.7 million had watched beetles fight it out in The Secret Life Of The Zoo.
