Actor Gary Busey has been crowned the winner of U.K. reality Tv show Celebrity Big Brother.

The Lethal Weapon star became the first American winner of the series on Friday night (12Sep14), seeing off competition from fellow U.S. actor Leslie Jordan and reality Tv star Stephanie Pratt.

Boxer Audley Harrison came in second place and dancer James Jordan was third.

After leaving the Big Brother house, Busey admitted his time inside changed him for the better, saying, "I didn't think I was selfish, I didn't think I was lazy, I didn't think I was insecure, I didn't think I had fear. This show showed me things about myself that I need to change, Big Brother is perfection... When I go back home, I'll be a changed man."
