However, despite earning a whopping £33k from his share of the money, Aaron stuck to his promise to give the cash to his mother for a deposit on a house.

Revealing her reaction, he explained: ‘She was crying when I came back from the show and then once I told her, she started crying even more. It was really emotional.’

Meanwhile, the hunk has already garnered much attention and flirty comments in his DMs following the show.

He said: ‘I’ve had a lot of love and a lot of mums offering hugs up. There’s a fan page right now of me in trousers.’

Thursday night’s tense finale was a close call for the three winners after Wilfred Webster almost made it before being caught out as he and fellow traitor Kieran Tompsett turned on one another.

Kieran was first to be voted out by the other four contestants in the final, but left with a cryptic ‘parting gift’ as he revealed to the others that he thought Wilf was a traitor. 

On finding out her best pal Wilf betrayed her, Hannah said: ‘It was such a shock because I had never even considered him.

‘We had bonded so much that I was like, “How does nobody else see that he’s a faithful?” It didn’t occur to me ever.

When he said it, I could see the relief and happiness in his face at the outcome.’

On how the game will affect her trust in others, she added: ‘I’m never going to be able to have a relationship again. I suppose it has actually.’

Meryl said of Wilf’s deceit: ‘I was in shock. I literally dropped to the floor when Wilf told us he was a traitor. I did not believe it.

‘I felt complete shock like, “How did you lie to me and Hannah for so long?” But it’s a game and he was playing the game so well.’

While Aaron shared: ‘At the end of the day it is a game.

‘Even if it had gone Wilf’s way, there would have been no hard feelings.’
