Ulrika Jonsson claims her Celebrity Big Brother win was a ‘fix’
Ulrika Jonsson claimed her Celebrity Big Brother victory was a "fix" after she won the reality show in 2009.
The 52 year old beat television presenter Terry Christian in the final of the series, earning 57 per cent of the final vote.
Fans of the iconic reality show were transported back to Ulrika's series on Wednesday night during an instalment of Big Brother: Best Shows Ever.
The series — which is being presented by the show's original host Davina McCall and super fan Rylan Clark-Neal — looks back at its most iconic episodes in full.

Her win was a shock to her fellow housemates as well as Ulrika herself, after she had faced eviction five times during her time in the Borehamwood mansion.
As her name was announced as the winner, she turned to Terry and said: "It's a fix."
Speaking to Davina during her exit interview, she added: "Oh my God, that's just bonkers. It's a fix."
She added: "It was the weirdest experience of my entire life and I’ve had quite a weird life.
"I agonised over whether or not to come on. My husband said you can't bear being around people, it will be a challenge for you.
"My husband says I'm bossy all the time. I am. In my defence, I have to organise four children so things have to be like that."
The cast, which also featured the likes of rapper Coolio, Hollywood actor Verne Troyer and La Toya Jackson, were seemingly unimpressed with the final vote, as only five of her housemates attended her official party.
Big Brother fans became emotional on Wednesday as hosts Davina and Rylan looked back at the duet between Ulrika and the late Verne.
The clip saw Ulrika and Austin Powers star Verne, who was just 49 when he died in 2018, dress up as Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie to perform a cover of their hit song Endless Love.
During the hilarious duet, which Verne was seen practicing for beforehand, the pair attempted to hit the notes while some of their housemates fought back laughter as they watched the performance.
