Celebrity Big Brother final broadcast with ’10 minute delay’ following break-ins

Celebrity Big Brother producers decided to air the final with a ’10 minute delay’ after pranksters broke into the house twice.

Celebrity Big Brother bosses limited the amount of audience members, upped security and aired the final show with a 10 minute delay following multiple break-ins.

Aussie drag queen Courtney Act was announced the winner of Celebrity Big Brother: Year of the Woman last night in the final of CBB 2018.

The first half of the final was aired live on Channel 5, while the second half, which aired after a 30 minute ad-break, had a 10 minute delay according to The Sun.

Tuesday night’s triple eviction had a 20-minute delay from the studio to viewers TV screens to avoid a possible third break-in.

Television Audience Ticket outlet, Applause Store, usually provides audience members priority and non-priority tickets. Those with priority tickets can enter the studios guaranteed, but those carrying non-priority could be turned away.

Due to safety concerns following two break-ins, security were only allowing those with priority tickets to enter Elstree Studios for CBB’s live final. Any audience members that had non-priority tickets were turned away despite waiting hours in the cold.

Celebrity Big Brother producers are reportedly in talks to axe live evictions altogether for future series.

Big Brother returns later this year on Channel 5.
