The series six final, which aired on Sunday night, attracted an average of 2.36m viewers watching on televisions, according to the Daily Mail.

This series shot in South Africa had a peak audience of 2.6m, while in 2019 the show’s finale peaked at 3.8m viewers, showing a peak loss of 1.2m for the programme, relating to those watching ITV2 and ITV2 HD on TVs  in homes.

TV bosses introduced a few shake-ups for the first ever winter series including  Laura Whitmore taking over Caroline Flack’s hosting job.

These figures see a massive dip in viewership, they also only take into account those who were watching the show live.

These ratings fail to include all the bust fans who later tuned into ITV Player to catch their fix of the dating show.

Paige Turley and Finn Tapp were announced as the winning couple in the show’s finale.

The couple beat runners-up Luke Trotman, 22, and Siânnise Fudge, 25, to the £50,000 cash prize – which they chose to split – also knocking Demi Jones, 21, and Luke Mabbott, 24, and Jess Gale, 20, and Ched Uzor, 23, out of the running, who came third and fourth respectively.
