After more than forty days and six weeks in the Big Brother house, a winner has officially been named.

As Jordan was crowned the winner taking home a cash prize of £100,000.

Jordan from Scunthrope was one of five finalists and was up against Yinrun, Jordan, Olivia, Noky and Henry.

However, after a public vote decided the winner, hosts Will Best and AJ Odudu announced that Jordan had won Big Brother during the live final on ITV.

Who won Big Brother?

Jordan survived 11 evictions and was although nominated never faced eviction.

Throughout Big Brother Jordan remained a fan favourite and was often praised on X, formally Twitter, with many ITV viewers loving his “dry sense of humour”.

Whilst others loved Jordan, some were not a fan of his opinions and involvement in a love triangle between himself, Henry and Matty.

Sharing why he wanted to take part in Big Brother, Jordan said: “I suppose boredom made me apply, to some extent. I honestly applied on a whim.

"I'm interested in the social experiments side of Big Brother. I don't really like the idea of living with people, but I thought I might as well give it a try. And I wanted to challenge myself."

ITV brought back Big Brother after it took a five-year break, previously airing on Channel 5 back in 2018.

The reboot brought in more than 3.6 million viewers, making it the biggest viewership since its launch on Channel 4 back in 2000.
