Like they say, all good things must come to an end and that is exactly what happened tonight as Julian Clary was announced the winner of Celebrity Big Brother after entering the Elstree compound 25 days ago.
The comedian's victory came after MC Harvey, Ashley McKenzie, The Situation, Martin Kemp and Coleen Nolan were evicted from the house one by one in tonight's two hour special.
Getting the boot first out of the remaining housemates was MC Harvey who came out of the house and revealed in his post eviction interview that he didn't agree with model Danica Thrall's behaviour in the house.

The rapper, who also revealed that he went into the house so that "people see who I am and not what they read", said:
"It's not personal, Danica's a nice girl but I don't like her games with men. She claims she doesn't know doesn't know what she's doing but she's a smart girl. She was playing a game with Prince Lorenzo and The Situation."
Following Harvey out of the house was Olympic Team GB athlete Ashley McKenzie who couldn't dodge the questions about is wishful romance with fellow housemate Rhian Sugden. Revealing that he has no hard feelings against her now that they are both out of the house, the star told host Brian Dowling:
"She's an amazing girl and I won't take anything from her. She came in the house with a bit of a reputation but came out as a lovely girl."
Coming in at fourth place was Jersey Shore's Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino. The reality TV star who found himself in a love triangle ad fighting for Danica's affections with Prince Lorenzo.
Speaking about how he was feeling getting to the final stage of the reality TV show, the TV star said: "It means so much to make it to the finals."
With three housemates remaining, it was time for Brian to reveal who was going to leave the house next. Despite being a favourite in the house, Martin Kemp missed out on being in the final two when Brian announced he had been evicted.
Recalling his experience in the house, Martin told the host: "It has been absolutely everything I thought it would be. It's been really exciting in parts and it's been boring in parts and it's been a huge adrenalin rush."
Coming in as runner up was Coleen Nolan whose run in with Julie Goodyear was the main talking point of her post-eviction interview. Explaining why she believes she and the iconic actress didn't hit it off, the TV personality admitted:
"From the second day there was something there", she reasoned. "I didn't know whether it was me being paranoid and if my intuition was wrong but there was just a fakeness about Julie with me and with everyone."
With all the housemates evicted, it was time for Julian to make his exit into the real world as the winner of the current series of the show. Thanking those who voted for him, the comedian joked:
"Thank you and you've made a 53 year-old homosexual very happy."
Speaking about his friendship with Julie, the winner, said: "She's s fabulous. She was constantly entertaining me and she made me laugh."
So there we have it. Julian Clary is the winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2012. What do you think?
