Celebrity Big Brother 2016 final - Scotty Timlin

Geordie Shore party lad Scott ‘Scotty T’ Timlin has taken the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 crown, leaving the house as the winner in tonight’s grand final.

The 26-year-old beat Stephanie Davis in the final two, securing a 36.32% share of the vote to win, according to figures released by Channel 5.

Scotty had been the favourite to win at various points throughout the series, but only regained the lead in the outright betting markets just before tonight’s final after the week-long reign of Tiffany Pollard, who ended up finishing in fourth place.

“I honestly can’t believe it. I’ve just been myself,” he told host Emma Willis in his victory interview.

Touching on his Geordie Shore tearaway persona, he commented: “In there, that’s what I’m normally like, I get on well with people and I’ve made some friends. I’m genuinely a nice kid; that was me living normally.”

Scotty said that most of the arguments in the house were “pathetic” and described Stephanie’s illicit flirtmance with Jeremy McConnell as a “nightmare”.

“With Jeremy and Steph, I loved them both to bits but they made it complicated for themselves,” he said. “They are a perfect couple. In there it was a nightmare. I was trying to give them good advice, but they are so mad for each other they didn’t listen.”

Scotty also addressed his own romantic exploits in the house. On his Ex On The Beach co-star Megan McKenna, whom he was seen cuddling and kissing, he said: “I didn’t want to rush into anything. I don’t know what will be on the cards for us.

“We’ve now both got work commitments, she’s an amazing girl. We will talk about it tonight.”

He added that he thinks Tiffany is an “amazing girl”, but his frolicking with her was “just a laugh”.

Scott is the second Geordie Shore star to win Celebrity Big Brother after Charlotte Crosby, who triumphed in the twelfth series in September 2013. Vicky Pattison also recently won rival ITV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

However, the result comes amid controversy after Gaz Beadle tricked his Snapchat followers in to casting premium rate votes for Scott to win. Channel 5 has confirmed that a portion of those votes were disqualified.
