This is the last you’ll hear about the reality show monolith this year, promise.

Early figures suggest Friday night’s Big Brother final has recorded the lowest finale ratings in the history of the show.

BB10’s finale saw glamour model Sophie Reade crowned as the winner, attracting average audiences of just 2.88m (16.4% share) between 10pm and 11:15pm. This is nearly 2m less than last year’s finale, which was at the time the lowest-rated ever.

The audience peaked at 10:30pm as Sophie was announced the least offensive housemate.

The earlier show, broadcast between 8:30pm and 9:30pm, drew 2.58m (11.8%).

Could be why next year’s series will be the last… read about it here… and no, Channel 4 didn’t axe the show to save money
