RATINGS! Celebrity Big Brother's viewing figures fall for double eviction

Celebrity Big Brother 2018

1.5 million viewers watched last night's Celebrity Big Brother 2018 live eviction.

Maggie Oliver and Rachel Johnson got the boot in last night's Celebrity Big Brother 2018 eviction results.

The pair had faced the latest public vote against Ann Widdecombe, John Barnes and Andrew Brady.

The results began with host Emma Willis revealing the housemates with the most votes. Ann and Andrew were, in no particular order, the top two most popular housemates and SAFE.

Emma then announced the first housemate to be evicted, with Rachel leaving after she polled the fewest votes of the five. After speaking to Rachel, Emma returned to the house where she announced Maggie was the second to be evicted. That left John safe alongside Ann and Andrew.

The 9PM episode was seen by 1.5 million viewers, down 300,000 viewers on last week's first eviction.

The second half from 10:30PM averaged fewer than a million viewers, down 200,000 on last Friday night.

Inbetween the two CBB episodes, Will and Grace had 800,000 viewers, down 100,000 from last week and 1.3 million for its series opener.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues tonight, both at 9PM on 5Star and at 10:30PM Channel 5.

Elsewhere in last night's ratings, EastEnders had 6 million viewers on BBC One.

Coronation Street was the most watched show of the day, securing 7.2 million viewers for its two instalments on ITV, while Emmerdale had 6.5 million.

After, Lethal Weapon returned for its new season with 2.5 million watching to Would I Lie to You?'s 4.1 million in the 9PM hour.
