The final finalists to grace Channel 5 were Cameron Cole, Akeem Griffiths, Zoe Jones and Cian Carrigan.

Winner Cameron said: "I am completely and utterly shell shocked. I can't even put into words...I just can't describe it. I never in a billion years did I expect that. I thought I'd be out the first week...I just didn't think I'd be liked, I thought I was going to be irritating, annoying. I moan a lot....So I just didn't think I was going to fit in. The Housemates have been incredible. They have been so incredibly supportive. It's been the most incredible house."

"It was a dream to get in...I don't know what to say...I got what I expected and a hundred times more in an unbelievably positive way...It was the most life-changing, incredible experience."
