ITV’s search to find the lead for Jesus Christ Superstar struggles to keep audience.

The reality show which stars Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jason Donovan dropped to 2.5 million viewers last night, down from the 2.9 million on Monday.

The ITV1 show, broadcast at 9.00pm, has struggled to capture viewers despite having big names on the show such as Amanda Holden, Dawn French and the King of West End shows himself, Lloyd Webber.

It’s a far cry from the previous successes Lloyd Webber has had with the beeb. His primetime Saturday night series searching for a Joseph for Technicolor Dream Coat and a Maria for the Sound of Music, hosted by Graham Norton, proved rating bankers for BBC One.

There was success for ITV3 which attracted 1 million viewers for a repeat of drama Lewis at 8.00pm.
