When I'm a Celebrity victor Harry Redknapp played for AP Leamington

As ex-football manager Harry is named the victor, Redknapp leaps to his feet to celebrate with his sons and can be heard saying: "Go on, Dad, king of the jungle!"

He said: "My enduring memory from Dad's time in the jungle will be the day he was reunited with my mum, Sandra".

Runner-up Atack said she was "honoured" to have been in the final alongside Redknapp, who she said was a "worthy winner". "Where is she? I'm ready for her!"

She added that the experience had taught her to accept herself.

I honestly find it disgusting that Harry Redknapp said on GMB that Emily Atack had no chance with his son Jamie because of what she looked like without makeup, but now he's seen her with it on she looks "useful".

He said he hadn't even recognised her once she got out of the jungle garb: "She looked fantastic, today when I saw her I said, 'who are you?' She said, 'I was in the jungle with you.' I said, 'I haven't seen you before'".

The football manager was crowned King Of The Jungle during Sunday night's live final of the ITV reality series.

The actor and singer appeared emotional as he told Willoughby and Donnelly: "I can't tell you how happy I am". It's probably one of the best things I've done. I can't believe so many people voted for me.

Beach worms, goats' eyes, a bull's penis and a huge dead spider were all on offer and the sight of Barrowman, head down but thumb up, struck a chord with viewers on social media.

Redknapp's trial saw him lying down in an underground chamber while creepy crawlies and rats ran all over him. Dec was later praised for his solo presenting duties with the help of Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern.

As the final ended, Donnelly thanked Willoughby, who filled in for his usual presenting partner Ant McPartlin this year.

Emily Atack said: "Everything I have in my life I appreciate so much and will never take any of that for granted again".

A very chatty, smiley Willoughby eventually admitted to calling in from the street outside the wrap party, holding up her glass to show she was halfway through a drink.
