Celebrity Big Brother 2015 ends with disappointing final ratings

The Celebrity Big Brother 2015 final ended with more of a whimper than a bang last night.

The series had hit some huge numbers earlier on its run with episodes scoring over 3 million viewers following a dramatic start.

Two ejections, one walker and the nightly Perez Hilton v Katie Hopkins battles drew viewers to TV screens.

But ratings for this last, relatively calm week saw viewing figures drop with 2.7 million tuning in for the final last night.

It's down some 500,000 viewers on last year's series finale and lower than a number of the usual highlight episodes for the latest run.

Last night's show peaked with 3.16 million viewers at 10PM, just before the final result was revealed as Katie Price and Katie Hopkins went head to head in the final.

However despite Friday's perhaps disappointing numbers, overall this year's record breaking longest series should still manage to be the most watched since the move to Channel 5.

Up until this week the series had averaged an overnight audience of 2.65 million, up on last January's 2.5 million overnight average.
