The new BBC talent hunt continues to lose to The Voice in the TV fight on Saturday night.

The Greatest Dancer – with panelists Cheryl Tweedy, Strictly & # 39; s Oti Mabuse and Glee & # 39; s Matthew Morrison – was launched on January 5 for an audience of 4.7 million, but the ratings fell back to 4.1 this weekend million.

In the meantime ITV & # 39; s The Voice, which is also being broadcast at 8.00 pm, withdrew 4.6 million – excluding those who later looked at ITV + 1.

The valuations were also lower than a week earlier, when 4.9 million judges Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs, Jennifer Hudson and Will.i.am returned for an eighth series of the singing competition.

The Greatest Dancer is designed to appeal to a younger audience and is a co-production between the BBC and Simon Cowell's Syco.

A BBC source said: & # 39; The number of viewers for all channels was lower in the first week of January and after the fanfare of the launch it was no surprise that you saw a decline for The Voice and TGD. It is great that we have still brought more than four million on average. & # 39;
