Celebrity Big Brother UK 2011 ended last night and Jedward are free again!
CBB UK 2011 ended last night. Jedward finished 3rd behind the winner Paddy Doherty (reality TV personality, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding) and Kerry Katona (TV personality). Amy Childs (reality TV personality, The Only Way is Essex) finished 4th, Lucien Laviscount (actor) 5th, Darryn Lyons (paparazzo) 6th and Bobby Sabel (model) 7th. Sally Bercow (wife of the Speaker of the House of Commons), Pamela Bach Hasselhoff (actress) and Tara Reid (actress) were evicted by the public before the finale. I don’t know much about the winner, but he is a traveller and is known for shouting “Wooommmmmmaaannnnnnnnnn!”. He never attended school. Uhh, yeah.
But what really matters is that Jedward are free again after three long weeks of CBB! I think they stayed up all night tweeting and partying.
