Emma then spoke to the house once more to announce that Raph had finished in second place and Isabelle crowned the winner of Big Brother 2017.
On his experience in the house, Raph told Emma: “I never expected to get in. To be able to spend my summer in my favourite show since I was a little kid was the most amazing thing. I’m just so grateful. I may have cried a lot, but I loved every single minute of my time in there.”
On his preconceptions of entering the house: “It was so much harder than I expected. I thought I could go in there and be cutthroat, but it wasn’t easy.”
On his friendship with Chanelle, Raph said: “Before I came in here, what I did write on paper as my least favourite housemate, it’s Chanelle. But then I just got to know her and I saw that she had such a beautiful heart behind the exterior.”
