After securing 65.9 percent public vote, cage fighter Alex Reid, aka Katie Price’s boyfriend, was crowned victor of UK Celebrity Big Brother. The final eviction was held at the Elstree studios in Hertfordshire, UK. Last night’s series finale reached an all time high rating for the show. Since viewing was so high speculation has started that another channel may now pick up the series from Channel 4.
Former boy band singer Dane Bowers came in second place with 34 percent vote and soccer star-turned-actor Vinnie Jones, in third place. Swedish DJ Jonas Altberg, aka Basshunter, was ranked fourth, and actress Stephanie Beacham in fifth.
Alex has been dating the “glamour” model, using the term loosely, since her highly publicized split from Peter Andre last year. Katie Price also dated runner up Dane Bowers for two years in the nineties. According to Daily Mail, during the finale, host, Davina McCall brought up Katie Price’s name and the crowd’s cheers for Reid quickly turned to boos. It looks like we are not the only ones sick of Katie Price and her bulge.
