TV personality Ulrika Jonsson wins Celebrity Big BrotherJanuary 24th, 2009 - 12:02 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 24 (ANI): TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson, who is popularly known for her alleged affair with former England manager Sven Goran-Eriksso, has been crowned the winner of Celebrity Big Brother.
The thrilled Swedish star, 41, said: Im shocked I won. I was the last woman in that house.
But Ive beaten the boys and won it for my sisters.
Ulrika, who is rumoured to be the highest paid star with a fee of 175,000 pounds, pipped TV host Terry Christian to land the first position, reports the Daily Star.
Jonssons win has come as a shock for the bookmakers who had predicted Hollywood actor Verne Troyer to win the show. Troyer finished on the fourth place behind rapper Coolio on the third.
The mum-of-four had a rollercoaster ride on the Channel 4 show.
She threatened to quit on several occasions because she missed her kids. And she survived three successive eviction votes. (ANI)
