How David Potts went from holiday representative to Celebrity Big Brother champion, his ridiculous outfit and the backlash of millions of fans leave no doubt…

David Potts was crowned the winner of Celebrity Big Brother on Friday night.

The reality star, 30, narrowly beat Nikita Kuzmin, 26, to the crown as he came in second, with Colson Smith coming in third, Louis Walsh fourth and Fern Britton in fifth place.

It was a surprising win for many viewers as former X Factor judge Louis had been tipped as the favourite in recent days.

David has come a long way from his early days as a holiday rep in Ibiza and Magaluf prior to finding fame.

With his star set to rise after winning the ITV show, MailOnline takes a look back at his journey so far.

David was born and raised in Bolton and worked as a holiday rep in Ibiza and Magaluf in his early twenties.

In 2016, he was scouted by TV producers for the show Ibiza Weekender and joined in the fifth series with Ellie Young.

He proved popular with viewers and remained on the show until it ended in 2020.

David began to make appearances on other shows during this time, most noteably joining the cast of Celebs Go Dating in 2019.

He was joined by the likes of TOWIE’s Pete Wicks, Love Island stars Georgia Steel and Jack Fowler and Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson.

Although he went on dates with a couple of men, the star didn’t manage to find that special someone.

Later that year, David appeared on Celebs On The Farm where he finished as runner up to former footballer Paul Merson.

Continuing to carve out a career in the spotlight, David again finished as runner up on Celebrity Karaoke Club the following year and Celebrity Ghost Trip in 2021.

In 2023, he returned to his roots by joining the cast of Kavos Weekender, this time as Head Rep.

David was left overwhelmed when Celebrity Big Brother hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best announced his name.

After Nikita left the house, David said to himself: ‘I feel shocked and on top of the world. I cannot believe it. I feel slay, get me on that runway.’

David was cheered by the crowd as he made an energetic exit from the iconic house. He then told AJ and Will ‘Slay! I really did not expect this at all, thank you so much.’

His twin brother Matthew Potts and his mother broke down in tears when David walked out of the house.

David’s brother previously told MailOnline it was a dream come true for the ITV2 star to be cast on Celebrity Big Brother after he grew up watching the show.

Matthew said that he and David’s family, including his older brother, mother and father, are all incredibly proud of how he’s established a career in the entertainment industry, which has seen him star on reality shows such as Celebs Go Dating and Celebrity Ghost Trip.

Engaged father-of-one Matthew told MailOnline he has to ‘provide evidence’ David is his brother because of how different they are.

While David was scouted by ITV bosses to star in Ibiza Weekender, Matthew became a physio therapist at Championship side Huddersfield Town.

Speaking to hosts AJ and Will during his first interview on Late and Live, he said: ‘This is just me, what you see is what you get. Loud, long legs, here to slay!

David also spoke on Sharon Osbourne putting him in the ‘danger zone’ on the first night: ‘That didn’t surprise me, I get pre judged a lot on first impression.’

Discussing his friendships in the house, David said: ‘I like people, especially people who have the same energy as me, like Bradley for example, I gravitate towards them. ‘Me and Bradley have the same sense of humour, he’s just a great guy.

‘I’ve never really been one of the lads, but when I got really close with Nikita and Colson, I was like, ‘not me being one of the lads.’ I love it, I’m so versatile these days.’
