Ann Widdecombe and drag queen Courtney Act will go head-to-head in Celebrity Big Brother live final.

Five housemates remained in the house for the two-part special, with dancer Wayne Sleep the first to be eliminated.

The choreographer was reunited with his husband Jose Bergera before telling host Emma Willis it was “a real test” but “the experience of a lifetime”.

Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi was evicted next, to bag fourth place, before Boyzone singer Shane Lynch got the boot.

He revealed to Willis he had told his wife not to come to the house in Elstree to see him leave but she had come anyway.

Former MP Widdecombe will face off with Courtney Act, real name Shane Jenek, to be crowned winner of the series.

The series will come to an end just over a month after the first contestants entered the compound.
