Celebrity Big Brother was the second biggest trending television-related topic in the UK on Twitter in 2015, the social networking website has revealed.

With the year drawing to a close, internet firms are now revealing their annual most popular lists, and today Twitter became the first service to do so.

On its list of the top UK TV trending topics of 2015, the show’s official hashtag #CBB came second – beating rivals such as The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Great British Bake-off.

The only term to chart higher was #MTVHottest, the channel’s annual award for the hottest musical superstars driven by engagement from their die-hard fanbases.

This year it generated a staggering 635.8million tweets, with winners One Direction accounting for almost 94.3million of them.

Celebrity Big Brother’s high placing is likely down to the fact it airs two series per year. The civilian version, which suffered its lowest ratings ever this summer, did not make the top ten.

CBB returns for its seventeenth series next month, with Channel 5 today releasing its new eye logo and teasing details of a vaudeville theatre-style house.

Twitter’s full Top 10 trending TV topics in the UK in 2015 were:

  1. #MTVHottest
  2. #CBB
  3. #BBCQT (Question Time)
  4. #SSNHQ (Sky Sports News HQ)
  5. #XFactor
  6. #GBBO (Great British Bake-Off)
  7. #EastEnders
  8. #Eurovision
  9. #BGT (Britain’s Got Talent)
  10. #DoctorWho
