It’s been just a few short weeks since Chloe Wilburn was crowned the winner of ‘Big Brother’, but she’s already shunned the limelight and returned to her old job.

This year’s reigning ‘BB’ champion took home the highest prize fund in the show’s history last month, winning a whopping £116,100, but has now gone back to work as an administrator at a building company, in her hometown of Doncaster.

Speaking to The Mirror, Chloe admits that rather than a springboard to launch herself as a minor celeb, she saw her ‘Big Brother’ experience as “more of a gap year-type opportunity or a girlie holiday, just a few weeks away from work, doing something completely different.”

She adds: “I’m not interested in being a celebrity. I had no intention of chasing fame or trying to be a Z-lister when I came out.

“Being in that house you have no real routine. It was very claustrophobic. I was craving getting back home to get back to my routine and a big part of that was work, just hearing my alarm clock go off in a morning for work.”

Chloe even reveals that her employers were willing to allow her more time off, but she turned them down, insisting: “I love my job and I’ve got really good friends there so I wanted to get back to work as soon as I could.”

While she might not be seeking the limelight, the same can’t be said for several of her housemates (not naming any names, obv *cough*).

Delivering a couple of home truths to the thirstier members of this year’s ‘BB’ line-up, she concludes: “When I went in there I was so surprised at how many people had agents and were planning what they were going to do as a career on the back of ‘Big Brother’.

“I would see being on the show as more of a hindrance to a career then a leg up so I think a lot of them are in for a short, sharp shock.”

Chloe’s victory in this year’s series was praised by the majority of the former housemates who returned to the show in several ‘Timebomb’ twists, such as Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace and Nikki Grahame.

Later this month, the ‘BB’ house will throw open its doors once again, when a brand new series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ kicks off - but will any of this lot be taking part..?
