The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

The drunken brawl in the UK's "Big Brother" house - which ended with security guards being rushed in to break up the scrap - has created a stampede of interest among viewers eager to know more about the on-screen aggro.

As a result, the Big Brother website has, for the first time, made it into the top 20 most visited sites.

Said Web monitors Hitwise: "Following the recent outbreak of violence in the early hours of Thursday morning which led to security guards intervening and the show being taken off air, the website became the 17th most visited website in the UK; the highest position achieved for the website last year was number 34."

It's the first time in the show's five-year history that security has needed to be called to the house. Police have since launched an investigation into the incident. ®
