Britain's Got Talent returned to ITV with more than 10 million viewers, eclipsing its BBC1 Saturday night rival, The Voice.
The Simon Cowell show was back on ITV for its seventh series with a lineup of (mostly) talent that included a shadow theatre troupe from Hungary, a 14-year-old standup with cerebral palsy and a woman who lapdanced Simon Cowell in a chair.
Britain's Got Talent was watched by 10.5 million viewers, a 41.5% share of the audience, between 7pm and 8.35pm on Saturday.
It was nearly 4 million viewers ahead of BBC1's The Voice, which was watched by 6.7 million viewers, a 26.8% share of the audience, between 6.45pm and 8.15pm.
The two shows have a bitter rivalry - with The Voice briefly beating Britain's Got Talent with its first series last year.
