Simon Cowell has offered "irritated" congratulations to'The Voice' on its ratings success

Simon Cowell has congratulated 'The Voice' on its success.

The music mogul - who sits on the judging panel of rival show 'Britain's Got Talent' with David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden - admitted he was "irritated" to see the BBC singing contest reach a higher average audience, with 9.54 million tuning in compared with the average 9.43 million who watched his programme on Saturday (07.04.12), but is still pleased with its success.

However, Simon - who saw 'Britain's Got Talent' take just six million viewers compared with 'The Voice' having 10 million when they went head-to-head between 8pm and 8.20pm - is confident he featured better acts.

He tweeted: "A slightly irritated congrats to [BBC One controller] Danny [Cohen] and the BBC. But you didn't have a dancing dog!"

And Simon - who is known for his fondness for animal acts and was particularly delighted by Ashleigh Butler and her dog Pudsey - also praised the team who work on 'Britain's Got Talent' and is confident it will continue to do well in the ratings.

He tweeted: "I thought our team made a fantastic show last night and congrats to them as well. Loving the show this year. @GotTalent (sic)"
