Moment Jordan wins Big Brother

Jordan has been crowned the winner of Big Brother 2023.

The 26-year-old lawyer, who is from Scunthorpe, is loved by fans for his sardonic humour and deadpan delivery – and when he was announced the winner tonight, that persona did not falter. Runner-up Olivia was extremely excited after she heard she had come second place. Meanwhile, Jordan remained unphased and declared simply: “I need a drink.”

Throughout the past six weeks, there have been doomed love triangles, unexpected expected double evictions and divisive squabbles over oat milk as the number of housemates was whittled down from 16 to five.

Noky was the first finalist to be evicted tonight, leaving Henry, Jordan, Olivia and Yinrun in the running for the £100,000 prize.

The favourite to win was the heart-of-gold Yinrun, a 25-year-old customer support agent from Shanghai, China, who lives in Harrogate. But, much to the audience’s shock, Yinrun was the second finalist to be evicted tonight, meaning that she has come fourth place in this year’s final.

Henry came third place, meaning he won £1000, while Olivia came second place and Jordan is the unexpected winner!

Jordan was particularly hard to work out at first, but the public warmed to him and his wry humour as the series unfolded. He also became embroiled in chaos when he found himself in a love triangle with Matty and fellow finalist Henry.


Noky is the first finalist to get evicted...

Noky, former Miss Universe and Great Britain, has left the Big Brother house as the first contestant of the night to be evicted. But she’s still showing off those pageant skills walking down the catwalk as thousands of fans cheer her on. Done like a pro!

Can we talk about how amazing AJ Odudu looks?

AJ has constantly served looks throughout the series – remember that latex catsuit? – but tonight’s look is pretty phenomenal. She’s wearing a black floor-length satin dress with a diamante detail on the bustier – absolutely stunning.

Yinrun is the second finalist to get evicted, meaning she has come fourth in the competition

Screams could be heard after Yinran was the second finalist to be evicted tonight. Many people – including me – thought she was going to win!

It’s just Olivia, Jordan and Henry left in the running now...

Food writer Henry comes third place

Food writer Henry has come third in the Big Brother final for 2023.

And, of course, Jordan gave him a little peck before he left the house before telling Henry that he “adores” him...

Jordan is the winner and will be the one taking home £100,000!

Jordan looked miffed as he was announced as the winner of the Big Brother 2023.

Olivia is officially the runner up, and seemed even more excited than Jordan, who simply declared “I need a drink” after he found out he was the winner.

What’s in the future for Henry and Jordan?

Despite Jordan declaring that their relationship was merely “platonic with kisses”, it has became clear that the pair might be more serious than they let on.

In the Big Brother: Late and Live episode after the final, Jordan revealed further romantic plans with Henry.

“Henry and I made a promise, that whoever wins, we’d go to a five-star hotel.... somewhere decent, you know,” he said, before joking: “Twin room, of course.”

The pair also revealed that they are planning a romantic holiday to New York and Florence post-Big Brother.
