Courtney Act has admitted she's delighted Ann Widdecombe didn't claim victory on Celebrity Big Brother last month.

It was Aussie drag star Shane Jenek / Courtney who won Celebrity Big Brother 2018 this month, beating Ann in the final vote.


Now in a new interview, Courtney has opened up on her victory - and beating Ann.

"I never thought that I was going to win," she confessed in a chat to Attitude magazine. "Not that I thought I should win, because I thought a woman should win Year of the Woman… But given what I think women are about in 2018, I don't reckon Ann represents that."

Courtney, who graces the cover of Attitude's new issue out now, continued: "Not that I am a woman, but I am a feminist… Brexit happened. Donald Trump is president.

"If Ann Widdecombe won CBB Year of the Woman, it would be the third sign of the Apocalypse. We'd be sitting here waiting for the fourth, thinking maybe Ann's God does exist and is coming for the judgment day!"

As for Ann, she also had her say on the results from earlier this year.

Taking aim at the winner, Ann told The Telegraph last month: "Shane was tiresomely one-dimensional. All he ever wanted to talk about was being gay and gay rights.

"I have nothing against gay people at all, I just believe marriage, by definition, is between a man and a woman."

And despite not claiming victory, Ann said she still felt a winner after airing her views.


"It was a triumph of free speech," she said. "I'm not sure the viewers necessarily agreed with my opinions, but they felt I was entitled to air them, which is hugely reassuring in these days of snowflakeism when everyone's tripping over themselves to take offence."

Celebrity Big Brother will return to Channel 5 in the summer.
