Gino D'Acampo has been crowned King of the Jungle after winning this year's series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'

The Italian TV chef beat 'How Clean Is Your House?' star Kim Woodburn and snooker player Jimmy White in the final of the show after surviving three gruelling weeks in Australia.

Wearing the flag of his home country round his neck, thrilled Gino greeted hosts Ant and Dec and admitted he was looking forward to seeing his wife Jessica and their two sons Luciano and Rocco.

He said: "It feels great to be out, I'll be in civilisation soon and I get to see my boys."

Gino, 34, admitted camp life was tough and he was nearly always hungry but he enjoyed every minute of the experience.

He said: "These three weeks have been crazy, up and down. But there wasn't one day where I thought, 'What am I doing here?' But being crowned the King of the Jungle is the cherry on top of the cake.

"When I watched the show at home I thought there must be a trick, that there would be a trailer in the back, but you have to do everything. Spider in the mouth, walk a tightrope, you suffer. You really eat beans and rice, I thought if you said you were hungry they'd give you a baguette or something."

Overjoyed Gino was joined by his sons as he was crowned the winner by last year's victor Joe Swash.

Runner-up was Kim - who cuddled and manhandled Ant and Dec upon her exit - who was thrilled to have made it to the final but confessed she didn't think she would be able to cope with the dirt in camp at first.

Speaking to the presenting duo, she said: "I'm glad to be runner-up. I thought I'd be out third, fourth or fifth but this is great. At first I thought, 'I can't do this, it's a pigsty.' I had no dusters or polish, and if you did you wouldn't use them in this dump.

"All your creature comforts are taken away. It's a hell-hole lovey."

Jimmy finished in third position and revealed the best part of the experience for him was making friends with his fellow contestants, who included Hollywood actor George Hamilton and TV star Justin Ryan, and he has vowed to stay in touch with them.

He said: "The best thing for me was that we all became pals. There was nothing anyone wouldn't do to make the camp work. I've never been around 12 such talented people in my life. I got to know them so well and we're all going to stay in touch."
