Kian Egan has become the latest king of the jungle after winning the 2013 series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
The Westlife singer triumphed over dress designer David Emanuel in Sunday night’s final after viewers had seen the pair undertake one final gruelling bushtucker trial before finally leaving camp.
And the genial star appeared speechless, admitting afterwards: “I don’t know what to say.”
He added: “It’s been such a team effort. None of us would have gotten through it without each other and everybody’s a king or queen to me.”
Earlier in the show Kian said his time in the jungle had been “probably one of the best three weeks of my life.
“It genuinely is something I will remember for the rest of my life,” he added. “I’d highly recommend it for anyone to do.”
Runner-up David said he had had an “amazing journey” in camp, admitting: “I honestly didn’t think I could hack it.”
However he said that recent events in his life had spurred him on to beat his fears of jungle life.
“I didn’t want to go on about it but this time last year I had just got over surgery for prostate cancer,” he said.
“It was a huge blow and I thought if I can conquer cancer can I conquer the jungle and i think I have.”
Sunday’s show saw both Kian and David dine on a selection of disgusting jungle delicacies in order to win themselves a fully-cooked three course dinner and drinks of their choice.
Kian’s menu included cow udder, ostrich anus and fermented duck egg as well as a fish eye – which, according to Ant and Dec, he finished faster than anybody else in series history.
Meanwhile David found himself having to chow down on seaworms, cheese fruit and pig penis, washed down with a cocktail of blended cockroaches.
