So like all good things, it had to come to an end! I was hoping for one last twist that would see Emma Willis put all the evicted housemates back in and, as a result, extend Celebrity Big Brother once again. Sadly, this didn't happen. I'm going to miss everyone in that house. They have all been part of making it, in my opinion, the best CBB to date.

So Jimbo's done it! Jim Davidson is our winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2014 and what a difference a year has made for him. Last year, Jim was arrested before entering the house but now his name has been cleared and he has turned public opinion. Speaking to Emma after he was crowned the winner, Jim described himself as being "damaged". He told her: "I'm slightly damaged because of that, and all you've got to do is be truthful, and truth will conquer all." I love Jim - he was not only a fantastic housemate but so deserved the win and hopefully can move on.

I really don't think he hates Linda, although she really doesn't like him... I think Jim will be surprised to hear her side of events and the fact she felt such anger towards him. Speaking about Linda, Jim said: "It takes two hands to clap, takes two to argue. She's a fantastic artist, I really do admire her, we did clash a bit, but I can't wait for her to buy me a pint." Not sure that will happen, Jim.....

I loved it that Tulisa was at the house to see Dappy come second. "Never in a million years did I think I'd come second," he said. "Me coming into this house has helped me to separate Costas from Dappy." What a fantastic housemate the N Dubz singer has been. I think he has shocked a lot of people as he is just so loveable! I also think his and Jim's relationship helped the public warm to both of them. After Costas spoke about his dad dying suddenly, I sat in floods of tears as he said about Jim: "He taught me so much in the house, I'll call him dad for the rest of my life."

Sam, who came fifth, and Ollie, who came third, seem to be on the same page regarding moving forward with their relationship, although they were both coy with Emma and didn't give much away #watchthisspace.

Luisa did so well to be the last girl standing and she was my favourite housemate because she made such good TV. She was just so interesting to watch. As a very outspoken woman myself, I love how Luisa just doesn't care what people think!! Good for her. She might have been booed but, at the end of the day, people picked up the phone and voted her to come fourth. She should be proud!

Casey has been at the the heart of the main storyline this year and I think she is a lovely girl! I love glamour models (obvs!) and Casey did us proud. If only she hadn't gone back and fallen for Lee's charm or offered him a blow job though... I think the public would have placed her a lot higher if she hadn't, although she made the final and, as she said, no other model has done that before!

And there it is - the end. I'm gutted and today I will wear black and mourn out of respect for 12 housemates who really have made the last three weeks so entertaining!!!

Tonight I will raise my glass to Jim - a fitting winner of an amazing series.
