 Sarah Harding wins Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Former Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding has been crowned Celebrity Big Brother 2017 winner!

Celebrity Big Brother’s tearful champion Sarah left the house to a mixed reaction from the crowd, greeted by host Emma Willis.

Sarah confirmed: ‘I’m in shock. It’s been a bit of a tough ride. I was so out of my comfort zone, so many big personalities. I needed a new chapter and start a fresh. I just thought what better way to get out of my comfort zone and to show the viewers at home I’m just a normal girl. I’ve gone through a whole spectrum of emotions.’

She added: ‘I want to say thank you to who voted. I honestly didn’t believe this would happen.’

Sarah continued: ‘It was really difficult to adjust to the new environment. The main reason was to show everyone that I was just Sarah. I’ve been through ups and downs. I’m so grateful, it’s made me stronger and tougher. Once I got more adjusted, I was definitely feeling more settled. It’s made me a stronger person, I’ve grown a thicker skin, I am an anxious character that’s just me.’

On Chad: ‘I was in a short term relationship, I was dating somebody. We (Chad) found some common ground and started hanging around together, he became my best friend in the house, he has been my rock. I had to make a difficult decision. We’ve been through the mill together, it’s like we’ve known each other for months and months. We are going to see what happens, I would definitely like a future with Chad!’

Sarah has won £50,000 for her chosen charity Haig Housing.
