BBC One occupied three of the top four spots for the day, with Oxygen achieving fourth place; third place went to the preceeding Pointless Celebrities (which itself contained a Doctor Who related round) with just 100,000 additional viewers (3.58m/23.1%). The annual Eurovision Song Contest took second place with 6.73m viewers (35.2%). However, top spot once again went to ITV's Britain's Got Talent with 7.96m viewers (36.8% share). These are average figures across the whole of the programme, with the Eurovision Song Contest's audience reaching 8.37m (58.7% share) as the final results of the contest were being announced.
Consolidated viewing figures are expected to be released by BARB on 22nd May, which should see Doctor Who's figure increase
