The latest episode of Britain’s Got Talent topped Saturday night’s viewing figures.

Auditions for the latest series continued on ITV last night with the second episode.

Acts included 12-year-old singer Kerr James and mysterious act X who spooked Ant and Dec as he got them involved in a mind reading magic.

Jonathan Goodwin shocked as he escaped from a straightjacket while on fire before comedian Kojo Anim won the golden buzzer from Simon Cowell.

BGT averaged just under 8 million viewers for the instalment between 8PM and 9:25PM, a decline of around 400,000 viewers on last weekend’s launch episode.

Before Britain’s Got Talent, Stephen Mulhern launched his new Saturday Night Takeaway spin-off In For A Penny.

The 30 minute game show, which sees wacky games with up to £1,000 to be won, averaged 3.5 million for its opening episode, the night’s second most-watched show.

Earlier, the new series of Ninja Warrior UK began with 3 million viewers.

Over on BBC One and All Together Now came to the end of its second series.

Shellyann Evans was crowned champion of the 2019 run with a perfect score of 100 for her performance of Sia’s Alive.

A tearful Shellyann reacted: “Oh my god! Thank you so much!” adding she planned to use the £50,000 prize money for her wedding.

Afterwards, Casualty continued with just under 3.5 million viewers for its latest instalment before All Round To Mrs Brown’s returned to an audience of 2.5 million.
