Around 6.2 million viewers tuned in to watch contestants enter the Celebrity Big Brother (CBB) house on Sunday night, making it the biggest show of the day across the terrestrial channels.

Channel 4 said the average figures for CBB7 were up 10% against last year's launch, which saw around 5.6 million tuning in.

The figures combine those who saw the show on Channel 4 with viewers who watched the programme on its time-shifted Channel 4 +1 channel.
