Celeb BB 2011 - Big Brother's Big Beard Speaks Out

We thought it had left our TV screens for good, but Channel 5 gave Big Brother an early resurrection and critics were standing close by, ready to slate the new format.

Celebrity Big Brother 2011 launched this week and almost six million viewers tuned in at the highest peak. A glamorous new set in London and the Ultimate Big Brother housemate Brian Dowling ensured CBB got off to an excellent start. The house is amazing and the mixture of housemates will make for compulsive viewing for around two million people each evening.

While Big Brother's Little Brother (BBLB) and Big Brother's Big Mouth are no longer with us, Channel 5 have been wise enough to introduce Emma Willis as the host of Big Brother's Bit On The Side. With former Big Brother housemates and it's own unique style, the programme follows on from where BBBM left off.

Channel 5 may find it hard to match the success of Channel 4 with Big Brother, but by the hairs of my chinney chin chin, I'm well impressed!

Celeb BB: Day 2 - Three Housemates Face First Eviction Vote

Day 2 - Failing the first task in the new Celebrity Big Brother house, Kerry Katona was told by Big Brother that she would face the public vote. Then she had to nominate two other housemates to join her in the eviction vote. It was clearly an uncomfortable moment for the former Atomic Kitten singer as she held her head in her hands and eventually nominated Bobby Sabel (Model) and Sally Bercow (Speakers Wife) - claiming she had the least in common with these two housemates.

Kerry failed the Diva Task after housemates voted Jedward the biggest house divas, even though Kerry had tried to win housemates over by throwing tantrums over not having cigarettes. Big Brother wants viewers to VOTE TO SAVE the nominated housemate instead of voting to evict them.

Has Kerry picked the two 'least' famous housemates to save her own skin?

Celeb BB 2011: Massive Viewing Figures For Channel 5's Big Brother Launch

Channel 5 were ecstatic about the successful launch of Celebrity Big Brother after viewing figures gave the network one of it's best ever results. The programme aired at 9pm with ultimate Big Brother housemate, Brian Dowling hosting the show.

Celebrity Big Brother was watched by 5.1m viewers (21.9%) and easily beat off the competition, becoming Channel 5's highest audience outside of film/sport programmes. Last year Channel 4 had 5.5m viewers for the Celebrity Big Brother launch (including time shift), so the 5m on Channel 5 is very impressive. As the launch came to a close, 6m viewers tuned in to find out which celebrities had entered the Big Brother house. The new spin-off show Big Brother's Bit On The Side, hosted by Emma Willis, was watched by 1.8m (13.2%) of viewers from 10.30pm.

Big Brother helped give Channel 5 a peak-time share of 9.8% between 6pm and 10.30pm - higher than BBC 2 and Channel 4. The next three weeks are expected to lift C5's audience share, if Celebrity Big Brother can maintain an audience of over 2m on a weekday, then critics will be silenced.
