Celebrity Big Brother 2024 Final: David Potts crowned winner as Nikita Kuzmin places second

After almost two weeks of unadulterated chaos, brutal nominations and silly challenges, the Celebrity Big Brother 2024 final has taken place.

David Potts has been crowned the winner in an “incredibly close” ending that saw him in the final two with Nikita Kuzmin.

The Ibiza Weekender star beat Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Kuzmin to the title, after Coronation Street actor Colson Smith finished third, former X Factor judge Louis Walsh came fourth and TV presenter Fern Britton placed fifth.

Heartstopper actor Bradley Riches was eliminated in a brutal back-door eviction in the penultimate episode.

Riches’ eviction arrived after his fellow housemates were visited by their friends and family. But when it was the Heartstopper star’s turn, he was met by Celebrity Big Brother co-host AJ Odudu, who informed him he had received the fewest votes and was the seventh housemate to be evicted.

Meanwhile, viewers have accused ITV of “fixing” the show so that Walsh could stay in until the final. Britton named Walsh as her choice for an immediate eviction, but in a plot twist orchestrated by Big Brother, he was granted immunity.

Celebrity Big Brother final airs tonight at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.

Speaking to Fern about growing up, David said: “The bullying started in year eight, because when I was in year seven going into high school my older brother was in year 11, so it didn’t really happen then.”

Fern asked: “And you were 11, 12 – did you know you were gay?” to which David said: “I knew there was something different at that stage. I was like 12, so I didn’t know a hundred per cent what it was, but I just knew it was different because I did have girlfriends and stuff, and I knew deep down that it wasn’t true.”

He continued: “I left school when I was 16 and then that summer holidays as soon as I’d finished high school that’s when I came out and told everyone. I went home sat my mum down, told her and she was like it’s fine, I know, she was like don’t worry about it like it’s OK.”

About telling his dad, David explained: “I could just hear my dad walking up the stairs and I remember I was sat in my bedroom on my bed and I was so scared. He was like, ‘Are you alright?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, are you?’ and he was like, ‘Oh, your mum’s just told me what you had a discussion with her about earlier. You don’t need to worry – it’s not gonna change a single thing’ and then he gave me a hug.”
