Paddy Doherty wins Celebrity Big Brother

My Big Fat Gypsy star Paddy Doherty has been crowned the winner ofCelebrity Big Brother.

Doherty received a huge positive reaction from the crowd as he left the reality house to Kelly Rowland’s What a Feeling.

He told host Brian Dowling: “Thanks very much. God bless every one of you.”

Asked if he thought he would get so far in the competition, he replied: “I swear to God. One week, that’s all I thought. I didn’t think I’d get this far.

“I had no game plan, I was just myself. I thought Jedward was going to do it. Pair of sausages.”

Asked how he found life in the reality house, he said: “I’m not used to mixing in that way.

“You’re like a fish out of water. It surprised me, and I’m very grateful to the public for voting for me.”

Asked if he had made any life long friends, he named Darryn Lyons as a “proper gentleman”.

An emotional Doherty was later joined by his “woman”, with Dowling declaring that he had done his community “proud”.
