She followed Frankie Grande, Aubrey O'Day and Marnie Simpson out the house.

Speaking to host Emma Willis afterwards, she said she was surprised to have got this far "with my big mouth".

Renee credited her survival in the competition to loyalty with the other US housemates, despite being involved in the majority of arguments in the house due to her clashes with Bear.

She denied that she had fancied Bear, as he claimed, and was jealous of his relationship with Chloe Khan.

She told Emma: "In the beginning before he dyed his hair, I thought he had great legs and beautiful eyes. No, my type is much taller and darker, not Bear."

She said Bear was the "evil" in the house when asked who she wanted to win.

"I thought that Bear would win, because I didn't know Ricky would make it all the way, but when good versus evil, I would always rather see good win."
