10 million turn on for The Voice
More than 10 million viewers tuned in to see coaches on BBC One's The Voice finalise the line-up for the live stage of the contest.
An average of 10.1 million watched the 90-minute show last night - 200,000 more than watched the first of the "battle stage" programmes the previous evening.
The Saturday edition pulled in a bigger audience than rival Britain's Got Talent (BGT) for a third consecutive week.
But ITV bosses have been unhappy about Saturday's edition of The Voice over-running by three minutes, which they believe had an impact on their audience because the delay meant viewers missed the start of BGT when they switched sides.
They believe there is little excuse for the over-run because the BBC One show was pre-recorded rather than live.
The BBC explained that it originally made its programme as a 100-minute edition and re-edited the show to condense it into just over 90 minutes to minimise the overlap.
Next Saturday viewers will have the chance to begin voting for contestants, which will lead to four hopefuls being given the boot - one from each coach's team.
