Celebrity Big Brother past winners

Courtney Act won CBB's Year of the Woman series in 2018
Courtney Act won CBB's Year of the Woman series in 2018

Celebrity Big Brother has often caused controversy. Caging celebrity egos in the house in Elstree does not always boost their profile as they might anticipate, but has often lead to already fading careers finding their sunset.

Some of course have been more fortunate than others—Mark Owen from Take That could not have expected his career to re launch as it did subsequently.

In the winter 2018 edition, Year of the Woman, Courtney Act, aka Shane Jenek beat former Conservative minister Ann Widdecombe to be crowned the winner of CBB, with presenter Emma Willis revealing that Courtney had taken 49 per cent of the total vote in the final.
