Head to Head with Big Brother
The show did not always go head to head with
Channel 4's "Big Brother", as "Big Brother" aired at 9pm on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays and only clashed on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays with "Love Island" at 10pm. However, many terrestrial viewers in Walescould only watch "Big Brother" at a fixed 10.00pm slot every night on S4Cwhich also broadcast the show due to many Welsh terrestrial televisions failing to receive Channel 4. "Love Island"'s audience was about half the size of that for "Big Brother". [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/5233780.stm ITV1 suffers summer ratings slump] ]
