Courtney Act wins Celebrity Big Brother UK

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.

  1. Why is it that Big Brother is on 9Go when CBS owns Network 10? Is this something 9 are playing at strategically because of the purchase? It has not been on our screens before, right?

  2. We must be so proud 🙂 ….. CBB Final had the worse viewing audience of any BB around 1.5 million…. It also does look like it wont return after the next normal BB. It has lost a lot of its audience to Love Island.

  3. The Things I've Seen.

    First time I’ve watched Celeb Big Brother. And this season was so good, back to the basics of the format in many respects, but so good. All the conversation without many people getting offended, but rather inform the other person. Makes me wish it was back on Australian television, (and I realise the US version is coming, but that’s a different beast really) but an Aussie version seems inevitable. Or perhaps I’m just hopeful.

  4. Wish I could’ve seen this series. But I’m so excited about Celebrity Big Brother USA! Thanks for letting me know it’s on, David. I’ve not seen any notifications about it any time I’ve been on 9 or its multichannels. I would be lost without this site.

    • The whole series is on you tube and always is. I agreed with Amanda calling Shane out for pulling that stunt. He didn’t appear without knickers on any other occasion except the pretend wardrobe malfunction. He also was Trying to turn everyone against Anne, which really was the wrong year to start a confrontation. It almost cost him the game,but he redeemed himself next day.
