I'm A Celeb: Eastenders star Jacqueline Jossa from Bexley crowned queen of the jungle

Jacqueline Jossa has won the I'm a Celeb final.

The 27-year-old Eastenders star from Bexley was crowned the Jungle Queen after fending off nine other competitors over three weeks of the show.

Jacqueline, who went to drama school in Bromley, faced off against Andy Whyment and Roman Kemp in the final.

She broke down in tears after being announced as winner, embracing second-placed Andy before taking her place on the throne.

The mum-of-two braved a number of bushtucker trials, including having to endure a helmet filled with spiders, and being suspended in a box full of maggots and cockroaches.

However, one of her toughest was the 'crevice of cruelty'.

Alongside Ian Wright, she had to compete for stars by dodging water dragons and other creepy-crawlies while partially submerged in water, with Ian only able to free the stars by gradually shifting them through a wire mesh.

But despite all of Jacqueline's trials she went into the final as the bookies' second favourite behind her fellow soap star Andy Whyment.

The result was announced by Ant and Dec live on ITV last night.
