Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway was the most watched programme on TV last night (Saturday, March 31).

The latest show was the first to see Dec hosting solo, after Ant stepped down from TV commitments.

An average audience of 7.7 million tuned in to watch Dec go it alone, up 400,000 on the previous episode two weeks ago.

The show was also up over 1 million viewers on 2017, but couldn't quite match the series high of 7.8 million set by the landmark 100th episode earlier this month.

A peak audience of 8.6 million tuned in between 7PM and 8:30PM for what was the penultimate show this year. The series finale next week will air live from Florida.

On ITV after SNT, The Voice UK rebounded from last week's series low as it went live.

Olly Murs joins the show this year alongside returning coaches Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Jennifer Hudson.

The latest episode last night - running between 8:30PM and 10PM - saw the first live show of the series.

An average of 4.7 million viewers (including ITV+1) tuned in for semi-final as four acts went home. The numbers were up 500,000 week-on-week with a peak audience of 5.4 million.

The show was up 900,000 on last year's equivalent instalment, with 3.8 million watching the semi-final in 2017.

Over on BBC One, new game show Ready or Not debuted to just 1.4 million viewers at 6PM.

Pointless Celebrities continued with 3.1 million, down 600,000 viewers on last Saturday.

Casualty had 3.9 million, up 200,000 on last weekend, following the return of Who Dares Wins which dropped to 2.6 million viewers from last weekend's 3.6 million.

New drama Troy: Fall of a City dropped to a new low of just 1.3 million from the previous week's figure of 1.5 million. The eight part series opened last month with a figure of 3.2 million.
