The latest series of Celebrity Big Brother has been confirmed as Channel 5’s most watched to date – by a margin of just 40,000 viewers.

Yesterday, BARB released the remaining consolidated ratings for the fifteenth run, revealing that it averaged 3.08million viewers across its 32 episodes.

This is up only slightly on the thirteenth series, broadcast last January – which was the previous record holder, with an average of 3.04million viewers.

Although CBB15 got off to a very strong start – with the episode featuring Alexander O’Neal’s voluntary departure even scoring a higher official rating than the live launch show – viewing figures begun to tail off by the end.

Going in to the final week of the series – which was also the longest ever, lasting for 31 days – it was averaging 3.16million viewers, 120,000 ahead of the old record.

However, C5’s decision to schedule Monday 2nd February’s ‘surprise’ eviction show at 8.00pm – against competition from juggernaut BBC One soap EastEnders – brought the number down considerably.

This was compounded by the disappointing ratings for the live final four days later, which officially drew 3.03million viewers – almost 700,000 less than the conclusion of CBB13.

CBB15’s consolidated average is up 460,000 viewers on its overnight average of 2.62million. Consolidated or ‘official’ ratings are released up to two weeks after the broadcast of each episode, and account for additional factors such as recorded and timeshifted viewing.

    I wonder if there will be another series of BB and CBB next year? Will there still be another series of CBB in the summer after BB?

    I hope they will sign a new contract and keep BB and CBB for years. :grin:
