Jill Scott was crowned the winner I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!‘s 2022 series.
The result was announced by presenters Ant and Dec at the end of Sunday night’s (November 27) episode.
Following the departure of Mike Tindall a day earlier, three contestants remained in the final episode: former England footballer Jill Scott, actor Owen Warner and disgraced Tory MP Matt Hancock.
The MP was revealed earlier in the show as the third-place finisher after viewers saw the trio compete in three recent Bushtucker Trials.
After an exit interview with the hosts, Hancock rejoined his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo on the bridge with a kiss and a hug.
Hancock’s involvement in the ITV reality series had been the main talking point for a series that saw production return to the Australian jungle after two Covid-hit years at Gwrych Castle, Wales.
The unpopular former Health Secretary was announced as a surprise candidate just before the series aired, joining a list of candidates that also included DJ Chris Moyles, Culture Club singer Boy George and broadcaster Charlene White.
At 2/9, Scott was the big favorite to emerge victorious from Sunday’s final, while Hancock was less likely at 5/1. Warner, meanwhile, was a relatively long shot at 10/1.
When the final result was announced, Scott and Warner embraced before Warner shared how “gassed” he was for his friend’s success.
She was crowned by Mike Tindall.
Over 12 million votes have been cast since the final vote opened yesterday.
