Former glamour model Katie Price has won Celebrity Big Brother.
She beat ex-Apprentice candidate Katie Hopkins into second place in this evening’s live final.
Calum Best came third, Keith Chegwin took fourth place while Michelle Visage was the first finalist to be voted out of the house.
Earlier in the show some housemates had said they’d be annoyed if Katie Price won the series as she entered the house ten days after the original line-up.
Leaving the house to (mostly) cheers and chants of “Pricey”, the 36-year-old asked the crowd “Why have I won?” and “What’s going on?”
She broke down in tears at the beginning of her interview with presenter Emma Willis.
Describing her time in the house as “crazy” she joked that the show’s producers wouldn’t be able to play her a ‘best bits’ montage as “I haven’t done nothing”.
“I went in with a medical problem and have been on antibiotics and painkillers so I have not been myself. I feel like I’ve been boring so I don’t know why I’m sitting here,” she added.
The mother of four said she hopes to have made some real friends in the house, name checking the “genuine and lovely” Keith Chegwin who she “followed round like a sheep”.
Runner-up Katie Hopkins got a mixed reaction when she was evicted. The boos came as no surprise to her, but the cheers did:
“It’s really kind and it’s great to come second.”
She insisted she’d stood up for what she believed in during her 31 days in the house, even if it meant making enemies.
She said she prefers this approach to sitting on the fence or being “boring as hell” like winner Katie Price.
What a year it’s been in the Celebrity Big Brother house. Fourteen celebrities entered the house on day one.
By the end of the first week two had been removed, another had walked and only one had been evicted as a result of the public vote.
Thirty-four-year-old actor Jeremy Jackson from Baywatch was asked to leave after he opened Chloe Goodman’s dressing gown without her consent.
The Coronation Street star Ken Morley was removed from the house for “offensive behaviour” after Ofcom received complaints about “racist and sexual language”.
