We catch up with Cleo

How has your weekend been since leaving the House?

I went for my first walk, which I know sounds bizarre, but my legs have been like jelly. We don't use our legs in there very much, so to go for a walk is very strange and a bit trembly.

Do more people recognise you on the street?

Yes. I went up to our local supermarket with my mum and the reaction has been really lovely. Everyone from everywhere and every age has been really lovely and when you are in there you feel like you have been put in a shoe box at the back of the attic and everyone has left the country so it's a real surprise actually. It feels strange that people have actually been watching.

Were you conscious of the cameras all the time?

I tried not to think about it, but for me the whole experience in the House was not at all what I expected and I had the most dreadful nervous stomach from the beginning to end. The one good thing is that I have lost a lot of weight, which has been fabulous - the Big Brother diet.

I thought it would be a lot more fun. I didn't enjoy it in a fun kind of way. I enjoyed meeting everyone, I loved Jermaine, I loved everyone that I met in there.

If you had to choose a favourite moment..?

Oh there were lots of fun moments. Being in the Jackson 5 with Jermaine teaching it -- that was just the best. That was great. The water fight one night in the bathroom and I couldn't stop laughing -- that was good. And the last task where you had to rescue things from the front room, that was lots of fun..

What has shocked you the most?

I would have to say the conversations with Danielle. In there we all thought she is going to win because in there she is a happy young pony. Then you suddenly see the other conversations that are going on and you're just like 'wow'; I had no idea what was going on in the House I was living in.

What do you think will be the result tonight?

Jermaine to win definitely - all the way. Jermaine is solid and sincere every step of the way.

I would say Jack third, maybe Dirk fourth, and tied last for Ian and Danielle. Or maybe the other way round with Dirk and Jack, because Dirk has come a long way and I had many moments with Dirk but now I see on the outside some of the things he has gone through in his life and I can understand the damage it has done to him.. and I am actually so glad that I went back to put it back together and I feel very resolved and happy.

Who will you be staying in touch with?

Definitely Jermaine and Shilpa.

Finally, some hair tips for us please!

I cut my hair myself, all the time. I am celebrating after this by going to a hairdresser - I am only wearing it like this because this is exactly how I feel on the inside. I can't pretend that I actually feel calm and wavy, I actually feel spiky.
