The British public have voted Christopher Biggins as the king of the jungle in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

All the evicted celebrities turned up in camp to witness his crowning. And he promptly descended into a flood of pantomime tears and blubbing.

Led to his throne by Ant and Dec, he shrieked: “How embarrassing!”

Later he told them: “Unbelievable fun… My health’s got better, Doctor Bob’s thrilled with me.”

He acknowledged the camp fights between the older campers: “There was a bit of friction, but listen, you put 11 people together there’s bound to be a bit of friction.”

“I didn’t think I’d cope because I like my home comforts… I never want to see mud again… But I’ve just had a ball!”

Runner-up Janice Dickinson was as feisty and full on right to the end, saying how badly she wanted to win for her charity, Aids Research.

Asked by Ant and Dec how difficult it was, she said: “It’s up there with the birth of my two sons.”

“I thought it was a holiday, I thought it was a spa… The worst was the rat. Getting bitten.

“I feel I really conquered some fears… Thank you to the people of the United Kingdom,” she said sarcastically, after the public voted her to do a record 10 bushtucker trials.
