Big Brother's winner Sam celebrates homecoming in style
LLANELLI'S Big Brother winner Sam Evans was given a hero's welcome by friends and family at a surprise party to celebrate his success.
The party, organised by his sister Rachel to mark his homecoming, was held at Llanelli Cricket Club a day after Sam arrived back from his triumphant 68-day spell in the famous house where he won the show and £100,000 prize money.
The 23-year-old who has played for the Wales and Great Britain deaf football teams, was met by members of the squad from West End, who had a contract made ready for him to sign up for next season.
One of his fellow housemates, Callum Knell also made the trip from London to make an appearance, after the pair struck up a good friendship while in the house.
He tweeted: "So good to see @Samarious4 again, and glad that I didn't let slip about his surprise party! #lads #welcomehome."
Sam, who is a former Ysgol y Babanod Felinfoel, Five Roads primary and Maes Yr Yrfa school student was born with 70 to 80 per cent hearing loss and entered the house with the hope of being an inspiration to others.
He has revealed that from his winnings he will give 25 per cent to charity, 25 per cent to his family and friends, and invest the remaining 50 per cent to secure his future.
Sam took to Twitter the next morning to tell his followers: "Just woke up from my surprise party last night, mouth as dry as a 90yr old man's scalp! Thanks so much for everyone who came down! Brilliance."
