The figure puts it ahead of Channel Nine’s Lego Masters premiere, which launched to just 672,000 viewers.

Meanwhile, Ten’s MasterChef Australia managed to pull in just 545,000 viewers for its premiere on Monday.

Despite the win,The Voice’s 2021 premiere launched to more viewers with 1.33million people tuning in across the five major cities last year.

The Voice is hosted by Sonia Kruger, and its coaching panel comprises Rita Ora, Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy and Keith Urban. 

Rita was left stunned by contestant Danny Phegan’s stellar blind audition on Monday night.

But the judge was also baffled by the 45-year-old singer’s Australian turn of phrase when he uttered the slang term ‘fair dinkum’ following his powerful performance.

‘Fair what?’ asked the perplexed English singer-songwriter.

Her Australian counterpart Guy Sebastian then explained the well-worn Australian phrase meant ‘seriously’ or ‘honestly’.

However Rita then butchered her own attempt at using the expression, saying ‘[I] fair dickum love singing,’ to the amusement of her fellow judges.

‘I fair dickum love you,’ she added, pointing at Phegan, seemingly unaware that her accidentally R-rated version of the term wasn’t quite right.

‘We’ve got some work to do, haven’t we,’ joked Phegan about their language barrier.
