After weeks of debates, drama and discussion, Celebrity Big Brother 2018 is coming to an end.

The show launched on 2 January with an all-female cast, marking the 100th anniversary since women have been given the right to vote in the UK.

The 21st series aimed to show how women interacted in the house before male contestants entered. Big Brother has previously done this in 2007 – the eighth series of the show initially saw 11 females enter the house.

The reality game show is a spin-off series to Big Brother UK and premiered on Channel 4 in 2001. The series aired on and off until 2010 and was then picked up by Channel 5.

Notable winners of previous years include TV personality Katie Price and Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding.

The finalists of the series are Jess Impiazzi, Anne Widdecombe, Shane Jenek, Wayne Sleep and Shane Lynch. The five remaining contestants have avoided series of double and triple evictions in the house to reach the final stage.

Jess Impiazzi

Jess is an actress best known for appearing on seasons two and five of the MTV reality series Ex on the Beach.

Anne Widdecombe

Widdecombe is a former politician, who served as a Privy Councillor for the Conservative Party from 1997-2010. She also appeared on series eight of Strictly Come Dancing.

Shane Jenek

Better known under the stage name Courtney Act, he competed on season six of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Wayne Sleep

British dancer and director Sleep has appeared on the series The Real Marigold on Tour and The Full Monty.

Shane Lynch

Singer and member of the popular band, Boyzone, Lynch has also appeared as a judge on The All Ireland Talent Show.

Former MP Ann Widdecombe and Australian entertainer Shane Jenek are competing for the title, with Oddschecker figures showing their odds at 7/4 and 4/7 respectively.

The winner will be elected in the grand finale, when viewers are asked to vote for their favourite housemate.

The celebrity who receives the highest number of votes will become the winner and will be able to donate their prize to a charity of their choice.

Widdecombe is amongst the public’s favourite housemates, though she has faced backlash about her views on LGBT rights. Some angry viewers have accused the producers for ‘fixing’ the show in favour of the former MP.

One viewer tweeted: “it’s getting frustrating that it’s all about Ann definitely be a fix if she wins.”

The Celebrity Big Brother finale will air on 2 February 2018 at 9pm on Channel 5.
