Celebrity Big Brother 2015 was the most watched series since the show's move to Channel 5.

Whether it was actually 'The Perez Show' or not, one thing is for sure and that's that the latest CBB was a record breaker.

An average audience of 2.62 million viewers tuned in to the series which ended on Friday night.

Despite the finale evening being 500,000 viewers down on last year, overall the series was up on 2014's previous best series average of 2.49 million.

The latest Celebrity Big Brother was the longest ever at 31 days and also featured the biggest celebrity housemate line up yet with 15 star contestants.

It was easily Channel 5's most watched programme and so there's little surprise to hear it will be back in the summer for not only a civilian run but also another celebrity show.

Show bosses have already been trying to woo celebs for the upcoming new series with Katie Price revealing she had original been signed up for the summer season.

She said last month after entering the house part-way through: "They asked me to do the summer one, which would’ve been great to go out there and sunbath near the pool but no, they’ve [now] asked the Pricey to go in this January.”
