The final series of Big Brother comes to an end on Channel 4 this evening. Five contestants are vying to be crowned winner of BB11, before a whole host of former housemates compete in Ultimate Big Brother. In anticipation of tonight's finale, click through to see all the previous winners of the show, and vote to let me know who's your favourite! Play my BB faceoff game too!
Big Brother 10 launches this evening, and over the next few months we will evict each and every housemate until there's just one left standing. The last nine series have given us a diverse range of winners from different backgrounds, with contestants of different races, sexualities and classes all taking the crown at some point. In a recent survey about previous winners, Brian Dowling was most popular, with Cameron Stout least popular, but I'd love to know what you think, so vote below to let me know: who is your favourite Big Brother winner?
A collection of Big Brother 9 housemates enjoyed a reunion at Maxwell's Restaurant in London last night. Your favourite couple of the series, Luke and Rebecca, are still going strong, and are apparently now pals with winner Rachel and her BB BFF Kat. Darnell, Rex and Mohamed represented the male contingent, although there was no sign of BB9 hunks Dale and Stu. Shame. There's already been a series of Celebrity Big Brother since these guys graced our TV screens, and with another batch of wannabes going in to the house in the summer, last year's contestants better make the most of their fame while they still can. Will you be tuning in to Big Brother 10?
Just when you thought you'd seen the last of them, those Big Brother 9 housemates are back, for one more night. Last night the Big Brother wrap party was held at Sway in London, and lots of ex-housemates showed up including Dennis McHugh (on the arm of Jen) who was kicked out for spitting in Mohamed's face. Love was in the air between the brightly dressed Mario and Lisa, and your favourite couple Bex and Luke.
Winner Rachel showed up with Mikey, and the only celeb face there was BB enthusiast Leigh Francis. As the housemates say goodbye to the series, I wonder how many of them we'll still be familiar with this time next year, and why? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Rachel Rice was crowned winner of Big Brother 9 last night — she was the quiet unassuming housemate that sat on the fence throughout the show while the more opinionated housemates were evicted one by one. If you haven't already looked, then check out our reactions as it all played out in the live blog I took part in with a bunch of you last night — thanks to everyone who joined in, it was so much fun!
For a closer look at who was wearing what, who was kissing who and the final housemates' exits in picture form, then check out the rest of my enormous gallery from last night, before taking a trip down memory lane in a video of the best bits from the series — just read more
So Rachel Rice has won Big Brother 9, with 51.3% of the final vote!
Check out my massive gallery of pictures from last night, and the comments in our ridiculously fun live blog of the evening! During our live blog, there wasn't anyone present who seemed impressed about Rachel winning, in fact we were all pretty shocked.
Most people in the thread bet on Mikey winning towards the end of the evening, but he came in as runner up in the end.
But what did you think — are you glad Rachel won? Did you think this year was an anticlimax? Let me know.

After 13 weeks of arguments, romances, nominations and evictions, the end is finally here and tonight we will discover who will be crowned Big Brother 9 winner. I have so many questions as this series draws to a close: what will Mario and Lisa's wedding be like? Will Rex get his own reality TV show? How long will Jen and Dale last? Are Luke and Bex for real? How will the victor compare to the show's previous eight winners? But the most important question for today is simple: who do you want to win BB9?
PS Join me tonight on PopSugarUK from 8pm to discuss the Big Brother 9 Final as it happens!! We'll take a break for Ugly Betty from 9pm until 10pm and then get right back on the comments to discuss the lead up to Davina's announcement of the winner!!
Poor old Lisa was evicted on Friday, just missing out on making it in to the final week of Big Brother 9, and tonight two housemates will join her in the outside world. There are seven housemates left, and the public are now voting for who they want to win. I've got my predictions for tonight's double eviction, but I want to know what you think, so tell me: who will be first to leave?
Well well well, this is an interesting one — it's Rachel versus Stuart in this week's Big Brother 9 eviction. I'm quite surprised (and disappointed), as I was confident that either Rex or Nicole (or both) would be facing the boot. Stuart has been harping on about wanting to leave, so will this be third time lucky for the household hunk? He stayed in over Dale last week, and both he and Rachel were amongst the nine up for eviction the previous week. They got a similar number of nominations from their fellow housemates (five for Stuart and six for Rachel), but will it be that close when it comes to the public vote? Will it be Rachel or Stuart leaving on Friday?
