Who won the last Celebrity Big Brother in 2018?

The 2018 season of Celebrity Big Brother 22 was won by actor Ryan Thomas, with Kirstie Alley placed second as runner up.

Ryan’s win became a historical moment on reality tv as his time in the house was anything but smooth.

During the season, fellow Roxanne Pallett falsely accused Ryan of being ‘a woman beater’ after a joke play fight and tried to turn the entire house and public against him.

Ryan was left feeling confused, scared and isolated in the house unknowing of the support growing outside for him when the footage of ‘the incident’ was released, showing that he was completely innocent.

The drama in the house left Ryan terrified of the repercussions outside the house, “the game became real life for me. I did break. I was a scared little boy,” he told Emma Willis in his winners interview.

But the public rallied behind him and in a tear filled final, Ryan left the Big Brother house victorious.
