Celebrity Big Brother viewing figures down for 'boring' All Stars series

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Ratings for Celebrity Big Brother are down on last year amid claims that the new All Star series is 'boring'.

And it's fair to say it's not been quite the same start we saw to last January's series.

This time last year there was Tiffany Pollard's mix up over David Bowie's death, a moment which has gone down in CBB history.

We also had Jonathan Cheban walking out, Gemma Collins bursting through a fire exit and Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell's... thing.

By comparison this year has been pretty tame with a relatively calm first week, aside from the one row over water.

The first nominations took place on Sunday with 1.7 viewers watching last night's episode, down 400,000 viewers on January's equivalent show.

It's been the same story since launch, with this year's run notably down on last January. The series kicked off a week ago today with the least watched winter series launch ever, with 2.3 million viewers tuning in.

On Twitter, viewers have been making their opinions known.

Jonathan Cheban, who appeared on last year's series, tweeted: "So far extremely boring #cbb can't see it getting much better"

Another declared simply: "MOST BORING SERIES EVER #cbb"

Others feel the All Stars cast is missing a few important names.

"They need to put someone like Tiffany or Perez in, this is too boring #CBB" wrote one fan.

Another suggested: "#cbb is so boring this year! Need @stephen_bear back in there! X"

Let's hope it picks up soon...

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
