Britain's Got Talent hits its stride

Written by Daniel Kirby on 18th April 2016

The second episode of Britain's Got Talent brought in an impressive audeince of 10.3 million, making it the top rated show of the year so far.

This is welcome news for ITV, especially after the series opener drew in just 8.8 million, down significantly from a viewership of over 11 million in 2015.

Elsewhere on TV, Michael McIntyre's Big Show had a successful debut of 4.8 million, and whilst the show received a mixed reaction, McIntyre himself was praised by many for his performance as the host.
