Katie Price has won Celebrity Big Brother.
The television personality and former model saw off competition from Katie Hopkins, Calum Best, Keith Chegwin and Michelle Visage to take home the title of winner in tonight’s live final.
Katie told Emma Willis: “I don’t understand. I went in with a medical problem. I’ve been on antibiotics and painkillers [and] I haven’t been 100 per cent well. I think I’ve been boring so I don’t know why I’m here.”
Asked what it was like to enter the house late, she said: “I was at home watching the show and I’m like ‘I’m so glad I’m not in that house it’s crazy’ and then I get a phone call. 3 days then I’m in there. It was a crazy house. Okay I didn’t go in there in the beginning but I still spent 3 weeks in there. It’s not my fault that I was put in late.”
Katie said that not being well had meant she didn’t always have the energy to argue with people who said things that she didn’t agree with.
Discussing controversial housemate Perez, she said: “I’ve met Perez before and he’s always been a nice guy. People have to understand when you’re cooped up like that it does drive you nuts. It’s boring and there’s absolutely nothing to do and that was his way of expressing it. I’m a very laidback person so im quite tolerant in a lot of ways.”
And of Katie Hopkins, she said: “I’ve done a full circle with her. I’ve seen she’s got a real soft side but then she’s got this other side… maybe she did try and push my buttons at times. I think I spoke up when I needed to. I don’t know what you’ve shown.”
