Strictly Come Dancing is back and dominating the ratings once again.

A massive 8.5 million of us were tuning into watch our first taste of Strictly 2018 at the show’s peak, with an average of 8.1 million viewers tuning in throughout the whole show.

That’s just a little down on last year’s launch ratings, which recorded a peak audience of 9.5 million and a 44.7% audience share, but is still a runaway success – especially compared to rival Saturday TV series The X Factor.

ITV’s show returned last week to its lowest launch ratings in recent years but was the most-watched programme on Saturday night with a 38% audience share (48% for 16-34s). (Digital Spy)
