I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! crowned this year’s winner and the new queen of the jungle is England footballer Jill Scott.
The last saw tonight Hollyoaks star Owen Warner comes second and MP Matt Hancock finishes third.
Hosts Ant and Dec have revealed there have been over 12 million votes cast since yesterday and ‘most of them’ were for Jill, who was stunned to be crowned by fellow campmate Mike Tindal.
Before the coronation, the finalists had their final trials to go first, and those are always entertaining, but this year there was a twist: the other finalists got to watch themselves compete in the classic Bushtucker Trials.
Jill was playing for the three of them to begin with, plus a drink and treat for herself, but to do that she had to do the classic Bushtucker Trial Rat Race.
She had to lie down in a box and release the stars using only her mouth, while preying on rats, mealworms, and cockroaches.
Next was Owen who had to win the group’s main courses, as well as a drink and a treat for himself. He had to endure Bushtucker Bonanza, which is the food trial including five disgusting dishes, which he managed to complete.

Finally, Matt took on Flood Your Face, which involved having his head encased in a tank filled with water and all the usual jungle creatures. He won the camp their desserts, as well as a drink and a treat for himself.
Back on the live show, when Matt was announced as a third place finisher, Ant and Dec talked about his role in camp and how he was viewed by his campmates.
He said: “I just wanted to show what I look like as a person. A lot of people come to me with preconceptions, for obvious reasons, and I just wanted to be myself.
“But I believe as strongly as for politicians as a whole. We don’t look human enough and that’s probably the most extreme way to show who you are.”

Afterwards, Jill and Owen came out to chat with the hosts and Jill said she loved her time at camp.
She said she felt like she really fit in with everyone and loved being able to mingle and do things around camp, especially over the last eight days when she was the only woman there- down.
“I still had to do stuff. I still had to go get the water, the logs, empty the dunny. But it was good.”
Owen said he did a bit of traveling in camp and despite some tough times, he said it made him feel more comfortable with himself.
“When you’re really down, you really learn what you’re made of, and in there, I was really struggling.”
