Cameron Cole was crowned the winner of Big Brother 2018 on Monday night (November 5th) as BB season 19 welcomed its youngest ever winner!
A potentially historic character, Cameron be the last-ever Big Brother victor, with Channel 5 ending their relationship with the long-standing series and no other broadcaster yet to take BB on for a series 20.
Here are seven things you didn’t know about Big Brother 2018 winner Cameron Cole…
Cameron is 19 Years Old
The teenage vlogger celebrated his 19th birthday while in the BB house, on October 26th.
This makes Cameron the youngest-ever Big Brother winner, replacing Brian Belo, who was 20 years old when he won BB 8 in 2007.
Cameron just about made the cut for this year’s series as he was 18 at the time of applying!
He Came Out as Gay
The vlogger from Norwich will be fondly remembered for his bravery and courage as he came out as gay while in the house.
Having always kept his sexuality a secret, Cameron spent weeks debating whether to come out, before eventually opening up to Lewis Flanagan.
Cameron is a FIFA Nerd
The Norwich lad lives at home with his parents, where he earns his money through YouTube videos.
His YouTube channel, MrFifaCam, has 7,299 subs. Some of his videos have reached as many as 42,000 views.
It’s something that may come as a surprise, considering Cameron didn’t mention football once during his 53 days in the house! How did he cope without knowing any of the scores?
Cameron Has a Peculiar Phobia
If you didn’t think Cameron Cole’s persona was quirky enough, number four on our fact sheet is this:
Cameron has a fear of mushrooms and all animals.
Although the phobia sounds a little too obscure to be true, Cameron quickly proved that he wasn’t joking when he had a massive panic attack over a butterfly that nearly landed on him.
He’s a Big Brother Fanatic
Cameron’s Twitter account is like a running commentary of Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother.
As a man who doesn’t like to ‘follow the crowd’, you won’t find Camz tweeting about Love Island.
Nope, Cameron is a complete BB buff, and winning the competition is a feat that he probably never imagined in his wildest dreams.

Cameron Was Undervalued
Talking about GCSE’s may sound a little weird but you have to remember that Cameron only got his results a couple of years ago.
In a bit of an aggressive YouTube video, Cameron listed his results.
- B grades: Business studies, English Literature, Maths, History.
- C grades: English Language, ICT.
- D grades: P.E
Cameron continued to go on a rant about how he proved his teacher’s wrong by achieving those grades.
Wait until they see the results of Big Brother 2018, buddy!
In the video, Cameron said:
I wanna just do this. I wanna do that (puts middle finger up to the camera) to the couple members of staff at that school who said from day one that I would never ever do sh*t.”

He’s a Deep Thinker
During an interview with Big Brother, Cameron explained that he is keen to prove that not all teenagers are “sheep who think the world owes them everything”.
Philanthropist. Theorist. Ideologist. Cameron is a wise guru when it comes to social media.

Try to shoot me down
And I'll find reason to get up
I know it's burning but I won't let go
They told me I couldn't go higher
I'm flying with my wings on fire
