After three weeks of fights over food, Chad Johnson and Sarah Harding’s not-so secret snogging sessions and the ill-fated bromance that was ‘Jam’, another series of Celebrity Big Brother is nearly at an end.

With the last six contestants confirmed, here’s everything you need to know about the final.

What’s the format of the final?

Viewers will get a chance to see all the action from the final day in the house before the results are announced. The runners up will be interviewed one by one and then the winner will be revealed.

How is the winner decided?

The Celebrity Big Brother champion will be determined by a public vote. Whichever contestant receives the most votes from fans will win the series.

What does the winner receive?

The contestants are competing for £50,000, but in a new twist, this year the winner’s prize money will be donated to a charity of their choice. Previously, the successful contestant kept their winnings.

Who's in the final?

After Shaun Williamson was evicted from the house in a back door eviction just a day before the series’ end, this year’s six celebrity finalists are Jemma Lucy, Sarah Harding, Chad Johnson, Sam Thompson, Amelia Lily and Derek Acorah.

Which contestant is the favourite to win?

Currently the bookies are backing former Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, who has been dogged by rumours of special treatment from producers.

Her odds stand at 8/11. Second favourite is Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson at 7/2, next is Ex on the Beach cast member Jemma Lucy, who has had a series of bust-ups during her time on CBB, at 6/1, X Factor contestant Amelia Lily is in fourth with odds of 8/1, Harding’s boyfriend Chad Johnson is in fifth at 14/1.

Meanwhile psychic to the stars Derek Acorah is considered the least likely to win with odds of 33/1.

Who’s the presenter?

Big Brother host Emma Willis will once again be overseeing the live show and keeping the rowdy audience in check. Meanwhile, Rylan Clark-Neal will front the final edition of Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.

When’s it on?

The CBB 2017 series finale airs on Friday, August 25 at 9pm on Channel 5, while CBBOTS airs directly after at 10.45pm on the same channel.
