Essentially I would like the word 'likelihood' to be in the fifth column of the fifth row. With the fourth column of the fifth row having no border except on it's right edge. How would i go about achieving that?

\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{ | p{2.5cm} | p{2.5cm} | p{2.5cm} | p{2.5cm} | p{2.5cm} |  } 
\hline
 Impact & High & Medium & High & Critical\\
\hline

\multicolumn{1}{c|}{}  & Medium & Low &  Medium & High\\
\cline{2-5}

\multicolumn{1}{c|}{} & Low & Low & Low & Medium \\
\cline{2-5}

\multicolumn{2}{c|}{} & Low & Medium & High \\
\cline{3-5}

\multicolumn{2}{c|} Likelihood & & \\
\cline{3-5}

\end{tabular}
\end{center}

enter image description here

Just change the lines

\multicolumn{2}{c|} Likelihood & & \\
\cline{3-5}

to

\multicolumn{4}{c|}{} & Likelihood\\
\cline{5-5}

A full MWE (minimum working example):

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}

\noindent
\begin{tabular}{ | *{5}{p{2cm}|}  } 
\hline
 Impact & High & Medium & High & Critical\\
\hline
\multicolumn{1}{c|}{}  & Medium & Low &  Medium & High\\
\cline{2-5}
\multicolumn{1}{c|}{} & Low & Low & Low & Medium \\
\cline{2-5}
\multicolumn{2}{c|}{} & Low & Medium & High \\
\cline{3-5}
\multicolumn{4}{c|}{} & Likelihood\\
\cline{5-5}
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
