Celebrity Big Brother 2017 ratings: 2.2 million tune in for least watched winter final ever

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

2.2 million viewers watched last night's Celebrity Big Brother 2017 final overnight on Channel 5.

It was Coleen who won Celebrity Big Brother 2017 yesterday evening, beating Jedward in the final vote.

Coleen's victory was seen by an average of 2.19 million between 9PM And 11:05PM, down just 100,000 viewers from the launch show 32 days ago back in January.

Last night's CBB final rating was down 400,000 viewers on last year's winter final figure, 500,000 down on 2015's January final and a million viewers down on the 3.2 million who watched the final in 2014. It was in fact the least watched winter final ever.

However as is usual, the winter run was comfortably up on the summer series with Stephen Bear's victory last September seeing an audience of 1.8 million while 1.7 million watched the summer finale in 2015.

Overall the All Stars v New Stars series averaged less than 2 million viewers based on overnight figures, the lowest rated winter series ever.

Last January's run averaged 2.3 million while 2015's winter show had 2.6 million.

Celebrity Big Brother will return for its landmark 20th series in the summer, which is rumoured to be another All Stars special of sorts.

As well as more CBB, the main series of 'civilian' Big Brother will also return later this year although no firm start date has been set just yet.
