Rylan Clark has won the latest series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The former 'X Factor' contestant saw off competition from fellow finalists Heidi Range and her husband Spencer Pratt [nicknamed Speidi] to be crowned the winner and he immediately burst into tears of joy.

Celebrities were quick to offer their congratulations with 'This Morning' presenter Philip Schofield tweeting: “RESULT! Congratulations @RylanClark...Our winner from day one, you out-real'd the reality stars!!! #CBB (sic).”

Former 'X Factor' contestant Jahmene Douglas added: “woo, WELL DONE! @RylanClark <3 wooooop! See you and your craziness tomorrow. No doubt you'll be shattered:P x (sic).”

'Neighbours' actor Ryan Moloney finished third and he had earlier backed Rylan to win.

He said: “I've had an absolute ball. But there's someone here I would really like everyone to vote for because because it would mean the most too. Please vote for Rylan.”

Earlier, Neil Ruddock and Claire Richards were voted off the how with Neil insisting he didn't care about winning.

He said: “My agent told me not to get kicked out - which I nearly did and don't go first, so I'm alright.

“It's like rehab with beer. A lot of boredom. I missed my missus and kids.”
