Dougie Poynter has been crowned King Of The Jungle after winning this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

McFly bassist, 24, was stunned after beating former bookies favourite Mark Wright: 'I'm lost for words. My mouth is so dry. It's been the best couple of week in my life.'

The Essex-native was presented with his crown by hosts of the ITV2 spin-off show, Laura Whitmore and Joe Swash.

After strutting down the walkway, he was greeted by his jubilant McFly bandmate Tom Fletcher.

Despite being runner-up, The Only Way Is Essex star and club promoter Mark, 24, was a gracious loser.

 

He said: There couldn't be a bit winner. He's the nicest, kindest person in the whole wide world. He deserves every minute of it.'

During their joint interview before finding out the winner, Dougie admitted he was surprised to have ended up in the final at all.

He said: 'I didn't do anything, I felt like I just chilled in my hammock the whole time.'

Mark enthused: 'It's the most amazing experience of my whole life.'

Dougie admitted they had been sick repeated times following their Bushtucker Trial the previous night.

Before finding out he hadn't won, Mark insisted: 'I've won being here... I can't be a loser today. It's not a competition. It's an experience of a lifetime and I've loved every minute.'

The show I was on before, it's kinda real-life, but you have to exaggerate. when I used to watch it back, I used to say that's really exaggerated. On this show, I'm totally me.'

Who will it be: Mark and Dougie had a joint interview with Ant and Dec before finding out who was crowned King Of The Jungle

When asked about a potential romance with Emily Scott, Mark said: 'Emily's a very good looking girl and a lovely girl to be around. We'll see when she gets out. She can come to Essex, we can hang out, everyone can come to Essex.'

Dougie was announced the winner after the pair went head to head in their final Bushtucker trial 'The final Party'.

They each had to eat a disgusting drink, starter, main course and dessert made of weird jungle concoctions, which would be worth a tastier alternative back at camp later on.

Mark started off the trial by drinking blended cockroaches, which left him retching.

Dougie didn't even wait to hear from Ant and Dec about what he was drinking and quickly downed a 'bloody scary' of blended emu liver.

He said: 'It wasn’t that bad it tasted like blood and liver yeah.'

Wriggly dinner: Mark struggled to digest the worms as they wriggled around in his mouth

For the start, Mark struggled to eat a 'beachworm bruschetta', which featured two alive beachworms.

He struggled to eat them because they were so chewy and wriggling in his mouth.

After finally swallowing them, he lamented: 'That was worse than the drink.'

Dougie nearly threw up after eating his starter of 'sushi degrotto' - made of a witchetty grub.

Mark decided to change his approach and imagine his main course of cricket crudité’ - a king cricket served with vomit fruit dipping sauce - was Peking duck.

After swallowing it, he declared: 'That was horrific it tasted like… sick.'

Dougie struggled to eat his main course Dim Bum - an ostrich's anus - and had Mark providing support by saying: 'It’s just a bit of meat, eat it like it is a bit of meat sitting here like we are having a Chinese meal.'

Finally, Mark's dessert was fish-eyed oysters, which he had to chew a lot on the optic nerve.

But poor Dougie ended up with one of the foulest dishes - a bush pig penis chopped into sections.

As he chewed on one of the sections, Dougie cried: 'Penis tastes so bad!'

Ahead of the trial, Poynter reflected on how different his life was: 'This time last year I was at rock bottom. Now I'm so happy.'

Exactly a year go, Poynter was devastated when he was dumped by his long-term girlfriend, The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford, who started dating footballer Wayne Bridge a few weeks later.

In March this year, he spent a month receiving treatment in rehab.
