Celeb BB has least watched finale

Paddy Doherty's win in Celebrity Big Brother was the least watched finale of the programme since it launched a decade ago, figures have shown.

An average audience of three million tuned in to watch the My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star triumph ahead of runner-up Kerry Katona last night.

But overnight ratings show the programme had the smallest audience for a final of the celeb version of the show.

Channel 5 began broadcasting the programme last month after seven series on Channel 4 - first launching in 2001. However the series as a whole has given a boost to C5's ratings.

A run of the regular Big Brother begins tonight when 14 new contestants enter the house.
