Chanté you stay!
You heard right! After a dramatic public vote from the public, RuPaul's Drag Race alum Courtney Act has been crowned the winner of Celebrity Big Brother UK.

It hasn't been an easy climb to the top for Courtney. She's had to put up with a lot in the Big Brother house, including educating her housemates on trans issues and clashing with runner-up Ann Widdecombe on LGBT rights. Which is why her win tastes all the sweeter.
Fans on social media are ecstatic over the win:
\u201cYes yes yes! Love wins baby! \ud83c\udf08 @courtneyact \ud83d\ude4c\ud83c\udffb #CBBFinal #CBB @bbuk\u201d— Andrew Hayden-Smith (@Andrew Hayden-Smith) 1517611285
