Condragulations to Courtney Act, the winner of Celebrity Big Brother – and a popular one at that. After Courtney – real name Shane Jenek – won the reality contest last night, Channel 5 has revealed that the drag artist won with a massive 49.43% of the vote.
And if you were in any doubt about Courtney’s popularity (and fancy digesting even more stats), 77.86% of people in RadioTimes.com’s survey of 500 said Courtney was the right winner.
Some people were really happy about the win, including (recently reunited) Spice Girl Geri Horner, who sent Courtney an epic video message. “Congratulations Courtney, you won!” Ginger Spice said. “You’ve been absolutely amazing in there. Girl power! Big kiss!”
I think @courtneyact was the best person to win year of woman, because she/he is an accurate representation of modern feminism 50/50 men and women, standing up for both and a whole lot more, lgbt, vegan you name it 👏❤️ #hero#worthywinner#CBB#CBBShaneJ
Well done to @courtneyact TRULY well done for winning #cbb ! Your win is greater than you may actually realise! There’s a great big sigh of relief from the LGBTQI community and all liberals! ❤️ #CBBCourtney@bbuk
Thank goodness that bigot didn’t win my bloody show. From series 1, Big Brother helped me as a confused kid to feel ok about being who I am. The show’s LGBT history is incredibly important and someone like Ann is not worthy. Shane J and Courtney did an incredible job. #CBB
