I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! chooses this year’s winner

I’m a celebrity…get me out of here! has crowned this year’s winner and the new queen of the jungle is English footballer Jill Scott.

The last case of the evening Hollyoaks Star Owen Warner comes in second and MP Matt Hancock finishes third.

Hosts Ant and Dec revealed that over 12 million votes had been cast since yesterday and that “most of them” were for Jill, who was stunned to be crowned by fellow campmate Mike Tindall.

Before the crowning took place, the finalists had their final attempts to get through first, and these are always entertaining, but this year there was a twist: the other finalists got to see each other take part in the classic Bushtucker Trials.

Jill initially played for the three, plus a drink and a treat for herself, but to do so she had to complete the classic Bushtucker Trial Rat Race.

She had to lie in a box and release the stars with just her mouth, all while dealing with rats, mealworms and cockroaches.

Next up was Owen who would win the group’s main course, as well as a drink and a treat for himself. He had to endure the Bushtucker Bonanza, which is the eating test with five disgusting dishes, which he managed to finish.

Finally, Matt tackled Flood Your Face, which involved his head being encased in a tank filled with water and all the usual jungle critters. He served the camp their desserts, as well as a drink and treat for himself.

Back on the live show, when Matt was announced as a third runner-up, Ant and Dec talked about his role in the camp and how he was perceived by his campmates.

He said: “I just wanted to show what I’m like as a person. A lot of people come to me with preconceived ideas, for obvious reasons, and I just wanted to be myself.

“But I actually also strongly believe that for politicians as a whole. We don’t come across as human enough, and this is probably the most extreme way to show who you are.”

Then Jill and Owen came out for a 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 she liked that she was able to do things around the camp, especially the last eight days when she’s been the only woman there.

“I still had to do things. I still had to get the water, the logs, empty the dunny. But it was good.”

Owen said he’s been on quite a journey at camp, and despite struggling at times, he said it’s allowed him to be more comfortable with himself.

“When you’re really at a low point, you really learn what you’re made of, and in there I really struggled.”

I’m a celebrity airs at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX. I’m a Celebrity: The Coming Out Show airs on ITV on Thursday 1 December.
