Mario was voted third in the Big Brother final with 5.1 per cent of the public vote.

Mario spent 77 days in the Big Brother house and will be remembered for being the mole, arguing with and fancying Ben, his mood swings, winning the graffiti task so his painting of Andrew hung up in the kitchen for the rest of the series and causing uproar for flipping a button to choose who to swap himself with in the Save and Replace feature.

“It’s constant experience experience experience,” he told Davina. “It just never lets up. A magical adventure.”

Earlier JJ came in 4th place, receiving 4.5 per cent of the public vote, having spent 32 days in the Big Brother house.

“I was just really pleased that so many people saw something in me to keep me in there,” he told host Davina McCall.

“I just wanted to be myself… I made friends as I went along and behave how I would outside the house.”

Andrew came in fifth place after spending 46 days in the Big Brother house and receiving 3.9 per cent of the public vote.

“I’m one hundred per cent geek!” he announced proudly.
