An average audience of 1.6 million watched the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 final last night.
After 25 days inside the house, the six finalists all left on Monday night in the live final.
From the six CBB finalists – Dan, Gabby, Kirstie, Nick, Ryan, Sally – first to leave in yesterday evening’s show was Gabby. Followed by Sally. Next to leave was Nick. In third place was Dan.
It was Ryan who won Celebrity Big Brother 2018 in the show, beating Kirstie in the final vote.
The two hour final, hosted by Emma Willis, was seen by an average audience of 1.6 million viewers.
It matched January’s and last summer’s series finales in total numbers, and proved a big hit in the young 16-34 demographic.
A tweet shared by production company Endemol Shine revealed: “Last night’s CBB final was no 1 in its time slot for 16-34s – an incredible +237% on C5’s slot average for 16-34 share. Up +23% on last winter’s CBB final and +10% on last summers. ???”
It may have been the final ever series of CBB with Channel 5 yet to recommission the show beyond 2018.
Hosts Emma and Rylan Clark-Neal admitted recently they don’t know what will happen next year.
Rylan said: “It’s a massive part of my life and I know it can be even better with the right TLC. I’d do everything in my power to make sure CBB and the civilian BB are still on the air.”
He vowed: “I will fight to the death to make sure it never goes away. If I had the money and owned the channel, I would buy the programme and film it in my garden.”
And Emma agreed: “I’m hoping it’s not the last Big Brother. I hope they recommission it. I love it. They did brilliant things in January. I think they could do that for the summer series.”
For now, the potential Big Brother series will start this Friday at 9PM.
