Emma Willis returned to host the series, whilst Rylan Clark continued to present the spin-off show Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side alongside Willis. Repeats of the series aired on MTV, the first to do so. Willis decided to leave Big Brother's Bit on the Side after the end of this series, hosting her final show on 2 February 2015. On 6 February 2015, Katie Price won the series, with Katie Hopkins finishing as the runner-up. This was the first series of Celebrity Big Brother where both the runner-up and the winner were women. Price also became the first female Housemate (and second overall after Brian Belo in Big Brother 8) on any series of Big Brother or Celebrity Big Brother to win the series after entering late. Price entered the House nine days after the original fourteen Housemates, and left 21 days later as the winner.
