Ratings for The Voice UK have been nosediving over recent weeks, but bosses will be relieved today to hear that they almost DOUBLED for last night's finale.
Last week's semi-final suffered from the hot weather and earlier start time, and saw audience numbers drop to a new low of less than 4.5 million.
However, the finale was seen by an average of 7.14 million - peaking at a sizeable 8.7 million for the announcement of Leanne Mitchell as the winner.
The peak number was higher than the show's launch on March 24 (8.43m), but significantly lower than the 11 million who tuned in to a Blind Audition episode in April.
Mitchell's Winner's Single, simply her performance of Whitney Houston's 'Run To You', has been released to iTunes today.
She wrote on Twitter: "Sorry for not tweeting sooner - thank you SO SO much to everyone who has voted for me on @BBCTheVoiceUK I cannot believe i've won!"
She went into yesterday's final as the 6/1 outsider, and was ranked at a distant 50/1 ahead of last week's semi-final.
Bo Bruce, the bookies' favourite, polled inside the Top 3 along with Tyler James.
Vince Kidd came in fourth place.
