Last night saw the tense finale of a long and arduous two month stint in the Big Brother house as the final seven contestants sat waiting for their names to be called!
One by one they were called out by host, Brian Dowling, and soon enough seven became two. Soon it was just Luke Anderson and friend Adam Kelly left, the two had formed a close bond during the show but it was Luke A, the 31 year old chef who emerged triumphant, walking away with £50,000.
Luke A, who was born a woman having undergone gender realignment surgery four years ago, was over the moon as he chatted to Brian about his time in the house saying: 'It's great to feel acceptance and I don't think its sunk it yet."
Kelly, who was runner up said of his friendship with Luke: "My boy Luke A, I had no problem with it. This ain't supposed to happen to someone like me", adding: "He's such a genuine, down-to-earth, good-hearted guy."
Luke A had a hard time fitting into the house at the beginning, but found solace in Adam and Deana. The former Miss India UK, gushed about her relationship with the two boys saying: "I don't think I would have had any friends except for Sara."
To celebrate Luke A's victory, we take a look back at some his highlights!
