Big Brother 2018 winner Cameron Cole speaks out after his victory

Big Brother 2018

Cameron Cole ha spoken out after his victory in last night' Big Brother.

It was Cameron who won Big Brother 2018 in Monday's results, taking home the £100,000 prize fund. He beat Akeem Griffiths in the final two while Zoe Jones finished third and Cian Carrigan ranked in fourth.

He told host Emma Willis after leaving: "I am completely and utterly shell shocked. I can't even put into words...I just can't describe it. I never in a billion years did I expect that. I thought I'd be out the first week...I just didn't think I'd be liked."

Cameron is Big Brother's youngest ever winner and also set to be the last ever, after the show was axed by Channel 5.

During his time in the house, Cameron won praise after coming out on the show.

And he says the support and positive reaction "means the world."

He told DigitalSpy: "It makes the whole four years of trying to work and figure things out kinda worth it, the fact that I've finally been able to help some other people through, if I have done, through that themselves. It's amazing.

"Honestly, I'm privileged to have been able to do it. I didn't plan to do it, but it's an incredible feeling to know that I helped people out. It's made everything worth it. I hope that it has inspired people as much as possible. Lots of people come out every day and they don't do it on national television.

"They don't get the reception that I've got, but they all deserve it because it's an incredible thing and me winning is as much for them as it was for me. It's an incredible honour and privilege to have the support that I have. I'll never be able to stress how grateful I am for it."

Cameron was also quizzed on Lewis Flanagan's removal from the house but refused to comment on the incident.

"I really want to talk about Lewis's time in the house with me and how much he did for me. He was incredible for me," he said. "He can speak for himself about that incident. I don't need to defend him – he's man enough to defend himself, and it looks like he has done.

"He was incredible for me in the house – very, very supportive, fantastic for me, and my experience would have never been what it was, I wouldn't be sitting here as the winner, if it wasn't for him. He's a really great guy."

Big Brother used to air on Channel 5.
