Big Brother viewers slam show for turning into 'Geordie Shore meets Ex On The Beach'

Big Brother 2016

Big Brother viewers have slammed the show for becoming 'a mix of Geordie Shore and Ex On The Beach'.

But despite the complaints, the Channel 5 series is enjoying some of its better ratings in recent years.

This year's show is not even a week in yet and has already seen a lot of controversy ranging from fights to break outs and one housemate leaving completely.

Last night's latest highlights were proceeded by the longest warning ever, including telling viewers of 'risky sexual activity'.

In scenes that followed that some have compared to Channel 5's 90s porn era, Laura was seen strangling and whipping Marco with a belt before he was sucking her breasts.

Later the two hit the bedroom and got up to God knows what else under the sheets...

Fans have taken aim at the scenes as have former housemates.

Gina Rio tweeted: "These are the loose girls running around town sleeping with your man! Never thought i'd see it go this far on TV! No morals, 0 dignity @bbuk"

And Ashleigh Coyle tweeted: "This isn't Geordie shore - I don't watch Geordie shore for that reason, I didn't want BB to turn into it."

Christian MJC agreed: "I mean it's hardly big brother, more like love island meets ex on the beach"

Despite all the complaints, ratings for the show are on the up.

Last night's episode scored the best numbers since launch and also improved on the equivalent numbers from 2015.

Big Brother continues tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
