Ratings for ITV's The Nightly Show dropped to their lowest ever numbers on Friday night.

It was host Dermot O'Leary in charge but even the X Factor's main man couldn't stop the tumbling numbers.


An audience of just over 700,000 viewers tuned in to Dermot's final show of the week on Friday at 10PM, a record low for the series.

The number was down 200,000 viewers on the previous low, last Friday with Davina.

Dermot had started the week with 1.5 million viewers, the worst Monday numbers and down 300,000 on Davina's week plus 1.5 million below the very first episode.

Overall Dermot's week as host was the lowest rated yet, with numbers having dropped with each new host since David Walliams launched the series.

The show has still got four weeks left to run with three more guest hosts confirmed: Gordan Ramsay is in charge next week and he'll be followed by Bradley Walsh and then Jason Manford.


Meanwhile, guests lined up for the next week are Ricky Wilson, James Van Der Beek and Scott Eastwood.

The Nightly Show airs at 10PM, Monday to Friday on ITV.
