Aussie drag queen Courtney Act has won Celebrity Big Brother UK.
She defeated Tory MP Ann Widdecombe, whom she had clashed with repeatedly during the series. Both had constantly swapped around as the bookies’ favourite, but Courtney Act was leading as it went into the finale.
“”It’s amazing to think that the public have chosen me, I guess it’s validation of the things I came here believing in. My inspiration for coming into the house was a teenage boy who didn’t quite know where he belonged or how he fit in… and not knowing what that meant. I learned that it’s okay to be different,” she said.
Act aka, Shane Jenek rose to prominence, during Australian Idol in 2003, recently appearing in Ru Paul’s Drag Race and Single AF.
She infamously entered the house by losing her skirt and triggering headlines. Quizzed on the incident she said, “Of course it wasn’t planned, I’m not going to flash my gash to the whole nation!”
9GO! is set to screen Celebrity Big Brother USA from next week.
