The ITV show’s ratings fell once again on Thursday night, with a massive drop of 553,000 viewers from the previous evening.

An analysis of evening viewing data showed that an average of 4.6m were tuned in to watch the show, a steep drop from the 5.16m audience on Wednesday night.

Meanwhile Thursday’s peak figure saw 5.46m of tuning in, compared to 5.12m on Wednesday – a drop of 340,00 spectators for the peak number.

The dwindling figures, which have been on a steady decline throughout the week, come in the wake of Storm Arwen, which forced ITV’s shows off the air on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, much to the fury in the house of viewers.
