Fans were not happy with the result of this year's Big Brother series.
Viewers were left fuming last night when Jason Burrill was announced as the winner.
The 45-year-old builder claimed his €83,000 prize after spending 50 days in the house, but many fans were left feeling cheated that the runner-up, Irishman Hughie Maughan, didn't win and branded the show a "fix."
Maughan (21) was the favourite to win the Channel 5 reality show, with bookies putting his odds to win at 8/11 on the day of the final.
A representative for Channel 5 declined to comment.
Here's what Twitter had to say about the result...
