Chloe Wilburn has been crowned the winner of Big Brother Timebomb. The 25-year-old finished in first place during last night’s grand final, ahead of runner up Joel Williams, and walked away with the £116,100 prize, plus the £5,000 she had won in Cash Bomb week.
Chatting to host Emma Willis following her victory, Chloe said: “I feel shocked. I don’t feel I deserve it… I’m just gobsmacked. I don’t know what to say.
“There was a point when I got put up for nomination for being the least deserving to be there. I felt a bit talentlesss, a bit out of place and a bit overshadowed. In there, it was just a bit overpowering.”
Before she entered the house, the Doncaster local had talked of spending her winnings on a trip to her favourite Mediterranean holiday destination… Benidorm:
“[If I won] I’d go to Benidorm straight away. It would all be about Benidorm. I love it! I go twice a year every year.”
Meanwhile, runner-up – and wannabe politician – Joel was full of kind words for his housemate, calling her a “worthy winner”.
Yesterday’s final saw the final six contestants exit the house after 10 weeks in front of the cameras. Christian MJC finished in sixth place, with Nick Henderson in fifth, Jack McDermott coming in fourth, and Danny Wisker awarded third place.
But as Chloe – the only female finalist – left the house to huge cheers, Twitter was more than happy – in fact, you could say “chuffed” – with their winner:
Only just saw Big Brother final but chuffing hell chuffed for Chloe, wonder if @EmmaWillis and @Rylan are chuffed for her.
