Big Brother 2014: Helen Wood named this year’s winner
She beat Ashleigh Coyle and Christopher Hall to be crowned the top housemate
Saturday 16 August 2014
Helen Wood has won this year’s Big Brother, fighting off tough competition from fellow housemates Ashleigh Coyle and Christopher Hall.
The former prostitute, who hit the headlines in 2010 for her alleged encounter with footballer Wayne Rooney, was left speechless after last night’s results were announced.
In her first interview since leaving the house, the 27-year-old admitted that she hadn’t expected to win and thought she was going to be evicted sooner.
"I think I would have gone in the first or second week,"’ Helen said.
Helen’s presence in the house has been the cause of much drama and entertainment. From blazing arguments with other housemates to a cheeky kiss with Ash, to dressing up as a clown, audiences have seen the whole spectrum over the past 10 weeks.
As to a relationship with Ash, she said that the pair were just good friends despite sharing some intimate moments together.
On top of the tension and drama in the house, Helen was given a pass to the final on her second day in the house, sparing her from having to go through any evictions.
To make things more interesting, Big Brother then orchestrated a hoax eviction where Helen “left the house” on the Monday of the final week. In reality, she moved into the spare room for several days until her shock return.
She will now walk away with the £100,000 prize money from this year’s competition.
