Strictly Come Dancing 2022 finale sees ratings drop

The final of Strictly Come Dancing 2022 was watched by an average of 9.2 million spectators, according to overnight ratings.

Childhood cinematographer Hamza Yassin and his professional partner Jowita Przystal lifted the glittering trophy after beating other celebrity couples Fleur East and Vito Coppola, Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, and Helen Skelton and Gorka Marquez in a public vote during the live show.

Saturday’s show had the highest ratings of 9.7 million viewers.

This is lower than the average of 11 million people who watched the 2021 final when soap star Rose Ayling-Ellis made history as the first deaf person to win.

Last year’s series peaked with 12.3 million views. Ayling-Ellis became the champion alongside her dance partner Giovanni Pernice.

Yassin said on Twitter on Sunday after he won: “Let me start by thanking my dance partner Jowita. You are an angel disguised as a human, a ray of sunshine!

“Thank you for your trust and guidance throughout this incredible journey. You’ve enlightened me, helped me through tough weeks, and you’ve been by my side… every step of the way.

“You will continue to do great things in your life. It is my pleasure to be your student. I will forever be amazing (sic) for how you changed my life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much. Hamza pigeon toe.”

In previous years, when comedian Bill Bailey, 57, became the oldest celebrity to win in 2020 with Oti Mabuse, Emmerdale actors Kelvin Fletcher and Mabuse took home the trophy in 2019 and who Hosts Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton were crowned disco champions in 2018, the average audience was around 11 million.

The series’ first live show “Strictly Come Dancing” in 2022 also saw ratings drop after being watched by an average of 6.8 million viewers, according to overnight ratings.

This is a drop in viewing figures from the first live show of 2021, which was watched by an average of 7.9 million people.
