Angus Ross, Seven’s Network Programming Director, said: “We were confident that Big Brother would deliver massive audiences in the key demos, particularly 25-54s, and the ratings released today confirm it.
“Big Brother has shifted our audience, being instrumental to us winning all key demos the last seven weeks in a row. It’s also been the foundation of 7plus breaking records, now winning 15 weeks in a row as the top CFTA BVOD service.
“We’re just getting started and we’ve got plenty more wins to come.”
