Celebrity Big Brother helps Channel 5 beat ITV with HUGE ratings

Alex DR

A huge audience of more than 3.2 million viewers watched last night's Celebrity Big Brother 2015.

An average of 3.22 million tuned in for the latest highlights show at 9PM as Alexander O'Neal became the third housemate to make an unplanned exit from the house.

He quit the series following a row with Perez Hilton in what's been a dramatic start to the new series.

Previously two housemates were removed by producers and we've still got three weeks to go.

Last night's CBB ratings were the show's highest since launch night and has put the current run on course to become the most watched yet on Channel 5.

The numbers meant that Channel 5 beat ITV on Sunday evening with new show Get Your Act Together - a sort-of replacement for Dancing On Ice - being watched by only 2.7 million viewers.

However BBC One dominated the night with Call The Midwife, Still Open All Hours and Last Tango In Halifax all putting in strong figures of more than 6 million.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
