14 celebrity housemates started the series and over the past month they were whittled down to six finalists.
The first live eviction of the series saw Daniel Baldwin leave while Bill actor Chris Ellison got the boot next. Fatman Scoop and Gail Porter were next to leave in a double eviction before Farrah Abraham - who missed tonight's final - got the boot.
It was another double eviction this Tuesday as Janice Dickinson and Jenna Jameson got the axe having polled the fewest viewer votes in the latest public poll.
Going into this evening's show the USA v UK theme had all but disappeared with Austin Armacost the lone Yank left standing in a sea of British housemates.
Host Emma Willis first announced the sixth and fifth placed housemates which were Sherrie Hewson and Stevi Ritchie & Chloe-Jasmine respectively.
After they had left, lines re-opened before freezing again as Emma revealed Bobby Davro would be leaving next in fourth place.
Another vote freeze later and the final two were confirmed as Natasha Hamilton left next in third place.
It meant James Hill and Austin Armacost going head to head in a UK v USA battle for the title.
Once lines had closed for good - with Emma revealing there was less than two percent between the guys - the winner was confirmed.
And pipping the other to the post, Emma announced that James had won Celebrity Big Brother summer's UK v USA series, leaving Austin as runner up.
The final outcome wasn't much of a shock with James having been the red hot favourite all week and had topped our poll this evening.
Speaking to Emma after his victory, James reacted: “I can’t believe it. To walk up those stairs alone…there have been so many big personalities, big stars…”
When asked why he thinks he was the winner, he responded, “no idea, I’ve tried to be myself…put other people’s feelings ahead of my own….I didn’t have a strategy…I went with my heart and my gut. We have to realise when you go in, you don’t go in to make friends but it happens naturally. I got close to people there who I hope to be friends with for the rest of my life.”
