Tim said: “I didn’t expect it at all, most people don’t get me and I’m just amazed.
“I hope now I can live up to their expectations.
“I would like to do something in television, I feel so warm and supported and if my stage fright is completely gone, I would like to do something in the theatre, maybe a pantomime.”
Paddy, 31, was voted by his fellow Circle contestants as the overall champion and won £70,000.
Tim, 58, was then voted by the public as the people’s champion and was awarded £30,000.

Paddy said: “I’m absolutely shocked, overwhelmed. I didn’t see it coming.
“What I love about it is that it shows the underdog can win.
“Usually on reality shows, it’s one of the originals that win but this time it wasn’t.”
The premise of the show is players are living in the same apartment block but in different flats within the building and can be whoever they want to be.
The contestants don’t meet face to face until the final and can only speak to one another via social media platform The Circle where they could be voted as “influencers” by
