Judo champion Ashley McKenzie finished in fifth place in last night's Celebrity Big Brother final.
We spoke exclusively to Ashley this morning to find out how he was feeling since leaving the house.
For the first week of the series, Ashley fell head over heels for page three model Rhian Sugden only to find that she was seeing someone on the outside world.

Talking about the model, Ashely gave us his side of the story.
He told us: "Rhian was obviously a touchy subject but for me, I honestly liked her and fancied her and I thought she was a lovely girl. I had to nominate her due to the fact that I didn't know what the hell was going on."
"People said she liked me, I was hearing from her bed that she said she liked me then I hear she was dating someone, for me, I was so confused."
"I'd take her for a meal if she was single. Like I said, I will never judge her from her past experience, I'm not that kind of guy I'm just happy-go-lucky."
During his time in the house, Ashley formed a close bond with Harvey and The Situation, however, Ashley admits that he was surprised to have got on so well with the Jersey Shore star.
He explained: "When I saw him on Jersey Shore I can't lie, I thought he was a p****! But I tell you now; he is a completely different guy from Jersey Shore to real life."
Ashley admits that he did want to win the show but wasn't convinced he would be able to despite most people in the house telling him he would.
He admitted: "I really did want to win it. I thought that from people telling me in the house 'you're going to win' I'd be in the top three."
"I'm not a celebrity and going into the house and being the underdog and coming out in the finals- I can't ask for more, it's the icing on the cake."
