It was the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! final today with three remaining contestants; Melanie Sykes, Jake Quickenden and Carl ‘Foggy’ Fogarty it was getting a bit VERY intense.
What a final episode, first thing to say is FOGGY IS KING OF THE JUNGLE!
The remaining contestants had to do their last Bushtucker Trial but this time all of them had one each; as opposed to the usual format of one person nominated by the public.
In this trial each celebrity had five stars up for grabs.
So you can imagine having gotten this far in the ITV show, all three celebrities got their five stars.
Carl, Mel and Jake gorged on a scrumptious five-course meal fit for a king or a queen without a creepy crawly in sight.
Foggy ate a penis and an anus
His Bushtucker Bonzana trial involved a five-course meal where Foggy had to eat an ostrich anus, baked tarantula, LIVE cockroaches, a glass full of mealworms and camel penis – delightful.
Jake completed the Fill Your Face trial
For every minute he lasted in the round helmet with critters, including cockroaches, spiders and soldier crabs he won a star.

Jake won five stars as well. His trial - which he described as "the worst thing" he's ever done - saw him with his head in a helmet, with 1,500 critters as he had to last a minute to win a star.
Mel fights her fears with her underwater trial
Mel's final Bushtucker Trial, called Drowned and Out involved water and she admitted prior to the trial that she wasn’t looking forward to it. "I'm crap in water, this is a tall order for me," she says.

During the show, a cheeky Jake added: "I lasted longer in here than I did on X Factor.”
Third place celebrity is Melanie
Mel was out of the jungle first after receiving the lowest public vote of the three. She told Ant and Dec: “I thought it was going to be more hellish," she says.
"It exceeded all expectations."
With Mel gone it was definitely going to be a King of the jungle. Obviously.
On hearing the news, Mel said: “Boys good luck, oh my god, oh my god!”
Speaking to Ant and Dec, Mel said: “I’m a bit gutted I am not in the final (two) because when you get this far you think it could be me.
“It was better than I expected, I thought it would be hellish. I had fun and I made some nice friends and I did have a laugh. It has exceeded all expectations.
Jake gushed about how the I’m A Celebrity jungle was the “best time” of his life.
Foggy’s jungle expectations
Foggy admits the jungle was tougher than he expected - he didn't realise they had to boil their own water and clean the dunny. He said he took on lots of jobs to avoid being bored.
