Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear continued his controversial streak as host Emma Willis was forced to tell him to "shut up" during his exit interview after repeatedly interrupting her.

The 26-year-old, from Walthamstow, failed to answer her seriously throughout their discussion, causing the presenter to chastise him.

The Ex On The Beach star told Willis he "knew he was going to win", but evaded her questions, so she told him: "You've just won, give me a serious interview."

When he continued to skirt around explaining his behaviour in the house, Willis said: "You're not really answering the question, because everything I throw at you, you're answering with eggs and pancakes."

Bear beat former EastEnders actor Ricky Norwood to become the winner of the second series of the Channel 5 show this year.

This series has not been short of controversy, including the removal of housemate Christopher Biggins over offensive comments, and complaints to media watchdog Ofcom about frequent nudity and scenes of sexual content between Bear and Chloe Khan, as well as between Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson and Towie star Lewis Bloor.

Bear has also been at the centre of bullying complaints, and Channel 5 has been accused of fixing the show after it chose not to air some incidents involving him, including scenes of him injuring Samantha Fox's eye during a prank.

He made further headlines when his girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg entered the Celebrity Big Brother house and broke up with him over his fling with Khan.

He faced the public vote every week after receiving an eternal nomination from his housemates, and clashed frequently with many of them, notably Aubrey O'Day and Renee Graziano.

Asked if he enjoyed "pushing people's buttons", he said: "All I know from me being in there is me being as fun as possible, and as positive as possible.

"If I know I've upset someone I'll genuinely leave them be and then talk to them sensibly, I never once bitched about someone behind their back, I was never horrible like... I know my limits, if you get the hump and they've walked off, you leave them."

Mob Wives star Graziano came third, with Simpson in fourth place.

Fifth place went to Danity Kane singer O'Day, while YouTube personality and Broadway star Frankie Grande was sixth.
