It was another strong performance for Ant and Dec as their live entertainment show Saturday Night Takeaway topped the night, according to overnight ratings data.
An average of 6.5 million viewers tuned in to ITV from 7.00pm to see singer Anne-Marie open the show, boxer Anthony Joshua take part in ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Out Of My Ear!’ and Stephen Mulhern give one Greggs employee a week off work.
Although Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway topped the night, it was down on the 7.3 million viewers who tuned in for the series launch last week.
