The celebrations continued for Celebrity Big Brother winner James Hill last night as he partied with his fellow housemates in London.

James was joined by Austin Armacost, Natasha Hamilton, Sherrie Hewson and Stevi Ritchie and Chloe-Jasmine Whichello. Bobby Davro was also there but didn't quite manage to get into the group finalist photo!

The finalists were all in high spirits as they arrived at the Village Hotel for the after party, and no doubt they were happy to finally be out of the house.

After 29 days and lots of tears, tantrums and evictions, The Apprentice star James emerged as the winner of the 16th series of the Channel 5 reality show. Reveal readers voted James as their winner and the final results proved he was indeed the most popular in the house.

James' win meant Team UK were the overall winners of the dramatic 16th series, which was centred around a UK vs. USA theme.

James won the show with 45% of the votes, compared to Austin's 33%.

James was, quite understandably, overwhelmed once he left the house as the winner. He said: "I can't believe it. To walk up those stairs alone, there have been so many big personalities, big stars…"

When asked why he thought he was voted as the winner, he replied: "No idea, I've tried to be myself, put other people's feelings ahead of my own... I didn't have a strategy. I went with my heart and my gut.

"We have to realise when you go in, you don't go in to make friends but it happens naturally. I got close to people there who I hope to be friends with for the rest of my life."

Sharing his first tweet since leaving the house, James said in the early hours of this morning: "It's me!! Can't sleep a wink!!! Thank you so much everyone who voted! I'm so overwhelmed right now! Love you all xx."
