Stephen Bear was announced the winner of the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother on Friday evening, this despite being eternally nominated and facing eviction twice a week during his time in the house.
And, of course, he won against the odds, as he was known for his loud and irritating behaviour while in the house - the very reason he was chosen by his housemates to be eternally nominated in the first place.
The 26-year-old from Walthamstow beat EastEnders actor Ricky Norwood, who came second, to the prestigious title after a month in the Channel 5 lock-up.
During his time in the house, he was seen becoming incredibly intimate with fellow housemate Chloe Khan, causing complaints to media watchdog Ofcom from viewers.
Bear has also been at the centre of bullying complaints, and recent days have seen Channel 5 accused of "fixing" the show after it chose not to air some incidents involving him, including scenes of him injuring Samantha Fox's eye during a prank.

He made further headlines when his girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg entered the Celebrity Big Brother house and broke up with him over his fling with Chloe.
So, although he was voted the winner by the public, there were a lot of not-so-happy customers out there on Twitter after his victorious release from the house.
Some people "lost faith" in the public.
Just lost all faith in the British public. Absolute classless scumbag won & the gentleman just lost out, disgraceful. Bear is the pits #CBB

Plenty of people cringed during his exit interview with host Emma Willis after she told him to "shut up"...

However, it wasn't all doom and gloom as there were plenty of people who loved Bear and found him "hilarious".
