The queen of the jungle was crowned following a vote by the public. I’m a Celebrity’s final ran from 9pm until 10.40pm.
Just three celebrities remain in the jungle - but who won? Here is all you need to know:
Who were the finalists?
The finalists of the hit ITV series were:
- Matt Hancock, former health secretary
- Jill Scott, former England player
- Owen Warner, actor
The three finalists competed to be crowned the king or queen of the jungle on Sunday.
Hancock, 44, had seen off celebrities like Culture Club singer Boy George, radio DJ Chris Moyles and Coronation Street star Sue Cleaver in the Australian jungle. The former health secretary is the MP for West Suffolk and has faced criticism from opposition politicians, from within his own party and had the Tory whip suspended for joining the reality show at a time when Parliament is sitting.

What happened in semi-final on Saturday ?
The four remaining celebs took on the famous cyclone challenge, dressing in the iconic outfits. The remaining celebs also hunted for choc ices hidden around the camp prior to the eviction results being announced.
In Friday’s episode, after Moyles was eliminated, Hancock told the Bush Telegraph on Friday: “We’re so near the end and I’m delighted to be still here. I never thought I’d make it to the final five and here I am, so I’m very grateful.”
Hollyoaks star Warner said earlier, after the campmates got ingredients for a fry-up: “The jungle giveth and the jungle taketh away. It’s given me another day in this beautiful place, but it’s taken my beautiful boy Chris, which I’m devastated about, he’s an absolute legend.”
Lioness Scott said: “I’m so sad to see Chris go. He was a great campmate. He’s so funny, so hilarious. I’m going to literally miss him so much.”
Meanwhile, Hancock and former rugby player Tindall took on Friday’s Bushtucker Trial, Fallen Stars. Tindall was asked questions to earn Hancock the time to put together puzzles in a cage. Hancock was unable to finish one puzzle in the time given, so they earned four out of the five stars available.
Elsewhere, Walsh tried to teach Scott and Warner how to do an impression of his fellow comedian Michael McIntyre while they were sitting at the creek. In the Bush Telegraph, Warner said: “Didn’t go very well at all. I sounded nothing like him and I know Jill sounded nothing like him. I’ll stick to the acting and Jill will stick to the football, leave the impressions to Seann.”
Back by the creek, he said: “I can do David Attenborough. ‘Here we have Seann, sitting on a rock, the sunlight hitting his face elegantly… watch how he swills the water around his mouth and then licks his lips…’” He also revealed he can “cry on cue” as he learned to do so after watching X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent auditions.
Warner then taught Scott how to cry by saying: “Pick a point, don’t blink… focus your eyes… really focus on your breathing. Think about how your breathing goes when you cry.” Walsh said: “It’s just making me want to go to sleep.”
Walsh was eliminated from the jungle at the end of the episode.
