The BBC show’s peak audience was sadly only four million, while the ITV show reached a respectable 5.5million viewers, making the "most-watched programme" of the night.
Cheyl’s fourth show also only managed an audience share of 18.1 per cent compared to The Voice’s 27 per cent of the viewers.
However, The Greatest Dancer was able to grow in viewership throughout the show, so perhaps the live shows will be able to win over more viewers.
