Tulisa Contostavlos has thanked Celebrity Big Brother fans for voting after her cousin Dappy was announced the runner-up of this year's series.

Dappy just missed out on winning CBB to Jim Davidson, yet Tulisa couldn't be more proud of him and was waiting outside the house last night.

The former X Factor judge cheered and clapped as Dappy - real name Costadinos Contostavlos - made his exit into the real world, and she hugged him once he'd finished his interview with Emma Willis.

Spotting her in the audience at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, Dappy's face lit up as he squealed: "Tulisa!"

Last night's final of the C5 show was an emotional one and showed Dappy comparing Jim to his late father Byron.

Casey Batchelor was first to leave, followed by Sam Faiers, Luisa Zissman, Ollie Locke, Dappy and then Jim.

Meanwhile, during her exit interview, Sam spoke about how ill she had been in the house, adding that her health issues left her "in bed crying".
