PROUD grandma Doreen Stephenson says she is delighted her grandson won Big Brother - but wished he had hooked up with Welsh beauty queen Imogen.Pete Bennett, aged 24, was crowned the winner of Big Brother 7 on Friday night. Doreen and husband Brian, of Congresbury, watched the reality show final at home. Doreen, aged 69, said: "I am really pleased Pete won. I spoke to his mother, Ann, who said she was over the moon as well."Doreen said she did like Nikki - Pete's girlfriend in the BB house - but said she preferred Imogen.She added: "I liked all of the housemates and I think Nikki will make a nice girlfriend for Pete, although I personally preferred Imogen."I haven't spoken to Pete myself, but I know he is very busy and has a lot to do. A lot of the family were preparing to go on holiday so that is why they couldn't make it to the final. I hope to catch up with Pete soon.
