Bollywood heartthrob Shilpa Shetty, who had become the center of international media attention following the race row that dominated Celebrity Big Brother, has been named this year's winner.

The 31-year-old Indian star won the public's support after a fellow contestant hurled racially tinged insults at her in an episode that led to a record 40 000 complaints to media regulators about the programme. The actress, who described her time locked in the house as “incredible and overwhelming”.

Screaming with surprise, Shilpa burst into tears as Davina McCall, the host of the show, announced the news.

"Chicken curry rules! Thank you so much," she yelled as she was led out of the house by Davina.

The alleged ‘racist’ bullying of Shilpa in the house, by fellow housemates Danielle Lloyd, Jade Goody and Jo O’Meara, has made the headlines around the world.

When asked about the race show, Shilpa told the show’s host, Davina McCall, that Jade “didn‘t mean to be racist”.

Adding: “These things happen and we‘re all human beings.”

Shilpa manged to garner 63% of the votes in her favour, even as fellow contestant Jeramine Jackson (brother of Michael Jackson) finsihed as runner up.

My thumbs up to the audience in the UK :-)
