19-year-old vlogger Cameron Cole has been crowned the winner of the last ever series of Big Brother, it was announced in Monday night’s finale.
Cameron beat out 26-year-old Akeem Griffiths in the final showdown to take home the £100,000 prize and become the youngest winner in the 18-year history of the show.
“I’m shell-shocked,” he told host Emma Willis after leaving the house. “This is like a miracle, I don’t know what to say.”
“I didn’t think I’d be liked. I thought I’d be annoying, irritating, I moan a lot. I didn’t think I’d fit in. The housemates were incredible, I love them all.”
Speaking about his friendship with Lewis, he said: “He is incredible. I love him to bits and I’m so glad I’ve been able to win as much for him because I’d never been able to do it without him.”
Akeem left the house to cheers from the crowd but was clearly gutted he’d not come out on top.
“I am gutted to come so close yet so far, we’ve got a worthy winner there,” he said. “Cameron is absolutely fantastic, he’s absolutely phenomenal.”
Big Brother closed its doors for possibly the final time late Monday night. The show was axed by Channel 5 in September, marking the second time it has been canceled after Channel 4 dropped the axe in 2010.
If this is truly it for Big Brother, it comes to an end after 18 years and 19 series all over 1,352 days across two channels.
