Is The Voice Set To Win Saturday’s Ratings War?

The ratings battle between Strictly and X Factor has only just died down and now the BBC and ITV are set to go head to head again with new series of Let It Shine and The Voice both kicking off on Saturday. Bookmakers, William Hill, are offering odds of 4/6 that The Voice attracts more viewers on Saturday evening and 11/10 that it’s BBC counterpart does.


The Voice was a solid ratings performer for the BBC but we think with a bit of a sprucing up by its new channel it could well trump the latest offering from Gary Barlow and co,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Which show will attract more viewers on Saturday night: 4/6 The Voice; 11/10 Let It Shine


The Voice winning manager: 9/4 Jennifer Hudson; 5/2 Will I Am; 11/4 Gavin Rossdale; 11/4 Sir Tom Jones
