The Bachelor 2012: Spencer Matthews disappointed with ratings

Channel 5 - Big Brother 2012

The Bachelor's Spencer Matthews has admitted that he's been disappointed with ratings for the show.

The Channel 5 series, which airs on Friday nights, has been getting viewing figures as low as 300,000.

Last week's episode was watched by a more impressive 500,000 thousand, but asked if those ratings were good enough, Spencer said: "No, not really."

He explained: "It's very difficult, I've had a bit of a tough time with it.

"Ratings are down and it's a shame."

He added: "I don't want to make excuses because I think the show is a good show. I enjoy it and I hope some people out there do as well."

But Spencer did suggest that the Olympics could be having an impact on the amount of viewers.

He said: "I think with the Euros and the Olympics going on at the same time, especially in Britain it's quite a difficult time to compete on TV."
