Caroline Wharram's Big Brother Eviction Struggles Against Olympics Opening Ceremony


Caroline Wharram's departure from the Big Brother house reportedly netted a peak of 800,000 viewers last night, the weakest figures for any live eviction in the show's 13-year history.

The average number for the entire 90-minute broadcast was 614,000 - an all-time low.

Still, we think the show deserves credit for still managing that high a figure in the face of the Olympics Opening Ceremony on BBC One - which, according to early whispers, reportedly had an absolutely incredible 27 MILLION viewers in the UK alone, without accounting for big screens and online viewers.

Wharram was evicted over Luke Scrase (who came second-to-last in the vote), Conor McIntyre, Luke Anderson, Deana Uppal, Adam Kelly, Sara McLean and bookies' tip Ashleigh Hughes.

She was met with what host Brian Dowling described as the worst crowd reaction "maybe ever", but showed no remorse for her controversial behaviour on the show.

She was at the centre of a number of scandals, including when she called Adam a "gorilla" and when she made a comment about transsexual Luke A that could have been interpreted as transphobic.

Her parents were allegedly completely against her entering the Channel 5 realtiy show.
