 Celebrity Big Brother was the most complained about TV programme of 2018, broadcasting regulator Ofcom has confirmed.

The show received 27,602 complaints in total, the vast majority of which related to an incident involving Roxanne Pallett and Ryan Thomas.

Pallett claimed Thomas had punched her, but viewers who’d seen the footage said he was only play fighting.

The Emmerdale actress later apologised, acknowledging she “got it wrong”.

This was the last series of Celebrity Big Brother to air on Channel 5 after the network announced they were not renewing either the celebrity or regular version of the show.

The second most complained about programme was an episode of Loose Women which saw Kim Woodburn clash with Coleen Nolan.

The pair, who had fallen out on a previous series of Celebrity Big Brother, attempted to sort out their differences live on air.

But the row ended with Woodburn becoming emotional and walking off set. Nolan took a break from the show and cancelled all her other work after the clash.

Other TV shows to receive complaints included Sky News, Emmerdale and Coronation Street.

An episode of Love Island, in which Dani Dyer became visibly distressed when shown footage of boyfriend Jack being housed with an ex-girlfriend, also attracted complaints.

If his reaction to topping last year’s chart is anything to go by, Piers Morgan will be disappointed that Good Morning Britain was only in seventh place this year.      (BBC)
