Last night Eastenders legend Martin Kemp placed third in the final of Celebrity Big Brother 2012.
Talking exclusively to omg! this morning, Martin admitted that he was happy to have made it as far as he did.
He told us: "For me there wasn't any difference between coming out sixth or coming out third or second, I think it is wonderful if you are the winner- I was very pleased to make it to the final."
"It's just nice when the doors opened and you felt the fresh air and saw other people rather than the final five that I was talking to."
Talking about winner Julian, Martin believed that he was the most deserving celebrity to take the crown.
He explained: "All credit to Julian because he was funny all the way through it and grew into the show. At first he was a tough nut for me to crack. I've never met anyone who is as closed as Julian."
"Gradually as the three weeks passed he opened up more. So hopefully by the end he will call me a friend."

The biggest difficulty Martin faced in the house wasn't the tasks or nominating but the moments when housemates had nothing to do.
"The biggest challenge is the downtime. When the tasks are going on you are fine because you've got a lot on your mind and its fun but the downtime is very difficult."
"I was very lucky because the weather was very good when we were in there so I spent a lot of time lying on the sun loungers. I was kind of putting it in my mind that I was in some kind of boutique hotel in California on the roof so I kind of twisted my mind into believing that- then I was ok."
During his time in the house, Martin was well liked by his housemates, only facing eviction once. Because of this Martin admits that he doesn't regret anything he did in the house.
He explained: "I have none [regrets] at all which I am really pleased about."
"This is why I am sitting here this morning with a smile on my face because there isn't anything I regret. I did everything I wanted to do."
