Celebrity Big Brother final ratings fall to just 2.1 million

Big Brother 2012 eye

The final of Celebrity Big Brother 2012 was watched by an average audience of just 2.1 million viewers last night.

The two hour long marathon show was seen by just over two million viewers on Channel 5 between 9PM and 11PM, while around 100,000 more watched on Channel 5+1.

The show peaked with close to 3 million viewers as the final result was announced, and comic Julian Clary left the house as champion.

It's a disappointing end to what has been a great series, with the final figures down on some of the earlier eviction shows this year.

The finale rating is also around a million viewers down on the numbers that watched Denise Welch in the show back in January of this year.

Overall the tenth series of Celebrity Big Brother was watched by an average audience of around 2.3 million viewers, a respectable number given plenty of tough competition, from The X Factor to both the Olympics and Paralympics.

Channel 5 has renewed it's contract for the show with makers Endemol through to 2014, meaning Big Brother is here to stay for now.
