Paddy Doherty has beaten hot favourites Jedward to be crowned the winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2011.
The star of Channel 4’s My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings beat tabloid favourite Kerry Katona into second place and X Factor duo Jedward into third.
As the crowd greeted him with his catchphrase ‘Womaaan’, Paddy said ‘God bless’ to all the public that had voted for him and said he’d just been himself during his time in the house.
Kerry – who won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2004 – said the show had given her a second chance to ‘right the wrongs’ in her life.
Earlier in the evening, model Bobby Sabel was the first of the seven remaining housemates to be evicted while paparazzo Darryn Lyons came 6th.
Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs and actor Lucien Laviscount – who had been flirting all week – came 4th and 5th, respectively.
On Friday, Big Brother kicks off a full series with ordinary members of the public entering the house.
And in a surprise twist, it was announced that former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson would be joining them as a special guest.
