Dougie Poynter has won this series of 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here'. MCFly musician Dougie Poynter beat his competition Mark Wright, who was actually the favourite to win, to gain the crown for being King of the Jungle.
After 22 days in the jungle, Poynter was genuinely shocked by the news, stating: 'I'm lost for words, my mouth is so dry. These have been the best couple of weeks of my life. I wish everybody in the world could experience that.' However he confirmed that winning would not affect the firm friendship that he had established with Wright in the jungle. Wright was quick to declare: 'There couldn't be a better winner than this man here. He deserves it so much, he is the nicest guy in the whole world.' Before the results had been announced, Poynter had admitted to Ant & Dec that it would have been difficult for both of them to get to where they were without each other. The pair had to take part in their final Bushtrucker trial, The Final Party, on the last day to win them a huge feast for their supper on the final night.
Dougie Poynter is the 8th male to scoop the prize since the show began back in 2002. He takes the prize from last year's Queen of the Jungle, Stacey Soloman. Meanwhile, Mark Wright hinted that he may continue his relationship with model Emily Scott: 'Emily is a very good-looking girl and a lovely girl to be around. We will see when I get out, she is a nice girl. She can come to Essex, we can hang out, everyone can come to Essex.'
