As of 4pm, Bear's closest competition is Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson and ex-EastEnders star Ricky Norwood, who are pretty much neck in neck with their votes!

But there's still a few hours to go until the finale so you can still change that!

Who do you want to win CBB? Answer here:
Stephen (Bear)40.70%

Bear has certainly been the most divisive and controversial housemate of this series thanks to his pranks, antics and behaviour that frequently wound up his housemates and led to plenty of tears and rows.

But he's got PLENTY of support on the outside, having survived five evictions! He was put up for eternal nomination by the housemates earlier this series, meaning he automatically faced the public vote each week.

Bear in the house this morning.

On last night's Big Brother's Bit On The Side, live from the house, Rylan Clark-Neal asked Bear: How much of confidence boost is it to know the public have kept you in all the way to the final when you've been eternally nominated?"

Bear quipped: "Really, I'm working for Big Brother!"

Rylan quickly responded: "Bear, that's the last thing we need to hear right now, let me tell you that!"

Obviously, being cooped up in the house, Bear has no idea about what's been said on the outside world, which has included grumblings that he's been given an easy ride in the house and edited in a way that encourages viewers to keep him in.

"It's amazing," said Bear, of making the final. "I didn't believe it, especially at the beginning when everyone didn't like me and now they all love me. I'm so thankful the public see sense and think I'm alright. These lot [the housemates] are crazy!"

The CBB final begins 9pm on Channel 5.
