Big Brother: Luke Anderson winners interview
We spoke to Big Brother 2012 winner Luke Anderson about winning £50,000 on his anniversary, Adam and acceptance.
Congratulations on your win, how are you feeling?
I'm over the moon, I'm happy and in shock mainly. I didn't think I'd win, even when it was me and Adam I didn't think I had it. It was overwhelming... it was awesome.
What was your worst moment in the house?
My worst moment in the house was the campfire situation. Hearing people nominate and what they think of you wasn't nice and the stuff with Becky, it wasn't nice.
There was lots of talk in the house about splitting the money, do you think people said that as a game plan?
No, me and Adam had decided between us that whoever won we'd give the other £5,000. I've won £45,000 in my book as I will be giving Adam £5,000.
Was it good to see your wife again?
Yes, just to hold her again was awesome.
Did you manage to celebrate your anniversary?
Ha. Yes, yes we did...
And how do you feel about Conor taking £50,000 of your prize?
I didn't mind. I knew one of them would take it and I was happy at the time for them because I never thought I'd win.
Did you get a chance to speak to any of the ex-housemates last night?
Yes I did, Becky gave me a hug which was surprising. Err... me and Caroline didn't get a chance to speak.
Who will you see after the show?
Obviously Adam... Lydia, Deana, Lauren and Benedict.
Who won't you be seeing?
I'll let you decide.
Why did you choose to go on Big Brother?
I'd had a sh*tty day at work and I thought what have I got to lose. I thought it would be good to do as someone like me and I thought even if I could help just one person who felt like I did that would be good.
Did you worry about the reaction?
Yes, I was concerned about how my work colleagues would feel, it played on my mind but since coming out it's been great. They had a party for me last night!
Do you have any regrets?
Yes, my only regret is not getting involved more. Not in the arguments but in the debates and sticking up for myself more.
What was the hardest thing in the house?
Not seeing my wife, I missed her so much.
How did you deal with the boredom in there?
Adam used to have these challenges that we set for each other, I don't think they showed them on TV. He did the gallon challenge at one piont and drank milk. He ended up projectile vomiting everywhere!
And what about the allegations of bullying?
I believe Caroline was a bully, she upset Sara and a few other people.
You had a huge argument with Becky, how did you feel about that?
It was horrible. It was an off the cuff remark and I felt devastated that I'd hurt her and her family so I apologised. She didn't want to know unfortunately.
Do you think Conor was a bully?
Yes he was at times but not in a bullyish way, he was violent sometimes... not violent but aggressive maybe.
Do you think he should have been thrown out after his argument with Deana when he threatened her?
Yes, I believe he should have.
What did you think of Lushleigh?
In the house I really did think it was fake... now I don't know what to think. You question things more in the house, I hope it all works out for them.
On the first couple of nights it seemed like he was trying to get hold of a few of the girls and then he started seeing Ashleigh.
What are you going to do now you're out?
I'm going to spend my time with my wife and catch up with everyone, I want to go back to the hotel too and thank everyone for their support.
The main reason I went on Big Brother was to help people and I'm not going to stop there, I want to keep going. I was so happy with my reception, I feel great.
I feel like I can be myself now... I'd like to have more surgery maybe on my chest and I'd like to have children, not immediately but in the next five years. My wife has supported me through all of this and she missed me so much while I was in the house.
And finally what have you learned and what will you take with you?
Big Brother's given me an understanding of other people, people I wouldn't normally spend time with. I've learned that I can be a little too sarcastic sometimes... I've made a great friend in Adam and I'd like to hope that he will be a constant in my life.
