Celebrity Big Brother launched on ITV1 last night with a peak of 3.2 million viewers (average 2.8 million) across devices, its highest launch since 2016. From 9 pm-10:30 pm last night ITV1 had more than double the audience of any other channel. The new series also secured the highest 16-34 audience of the night, with 463k and a 42.5% share across devices.

The show has met with controversy with Women’s Aid criticising the inclusion of a person who had been found guilty of punching his wife. The first Celeb series to air on ITV1 (England, Wales, CI and Northern Ireland) and STV (Scotland) saw some well-known personalities and some not-so-well-known faces enter the CBB house.
