Ulrika Jonsson Is Named Celebrity Big Brother Champion

by | 23 January 2009

Television presenter Ulrika Jonsson has won the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The 41-year-old ex-weather girl, best known for her work on TV-AM, Gladiators and Shooting Stars, was the only female housemate to reach the final of the Channel 4 reality show.

"Oh my God! That's just bonkers. It must be a fix," the mother-of-four said after she was crowned the winner.

Terry Christian came second while Grammy winner Coolio finished in third place.

Despite upsetting many of the female contestants and provoking viewer complaints, many had labelled Coolio one of the stars of the series.

He left the house to mainly boos just after 22:00 GMT and threw roses to the crowd.

Coolio followed former boyband member Ben Adams and actor Verne Troyer out of the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Troyer, 40, finished fourth in the competition, with 27-year-old Adams in fifth.

As he left, the ex-A1 star joked: "I hate you all and I hope you fall in a ditch."

The diminutive Austin Powers actor had been the favourite to win the current series.

He made light of the night on which he drunkenly crashed his mobility scooter into the Diary Room door, saying: "I've done it so many times, I've even fallen off! Scrapes, bruises - it's just another thing."

Glamour model Lucy Pinder was the first to be evicted from the house while former Sugababe Mutya Buena chose to leave the house voluntarily earlier this week.
