According to The Daily Star, 1.5 million viewers tuned in for the opening show, marking a considerable drop on last year.

It seems that the numbers are 300,000 down on the 2015 opening night and 600,000 down from the first episode of the 2014 series.

The lineup has been criticised with some questioning why a number of the contestants have been on reality shows before when this is Big Brother and not the celebrity version.

Others aren't happy about all the twists this year, including two houses and two sets of housemates.
