As they ate ostrich anus and pig's penis, fashion designer David Emanuel and Westlife singer Kian Egan expressed shock at finding themselves battling for the jungle crown.

The 2013 finalists of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! had one last feast together before their adventure came to an end. They had to do a final bush tucker trial to win their final evening meal.

The former boyband star was given "tap-ass" for starter - Ostrich anus in a tapas dish with some dressing.

"It looks like chicken, tastes like chicken. It's alright," he said.

Emanuel was given "cock au vin" for his main course - a pig's penis floating in a casserole.

"He's a big boy," he said.

Adding: "It's like rubber."

For dessert, Egan had "cock-olate eye scream" - a fish eye and a cockroach. "Oh my God. Disgusting," he said, as he ate the cockroach.

They both successfully completed the trial and were rewarded with a delicious feast of delights including smoked salmon, steak, pizza, and Eton mess.

Emanuel said he felt numb and said he did not know who was voting for him, but Egan said it is because he is "a good guy".

Egan compared his own popularity with that of reality TV personality Joey Essex, and said getting to the final was "way beyond my expectations".

He said to Emanuel: "You've come in here and outlasted everyone else and that's because you are a good guy and people vote for nice people.

"I have a fan base of Westlife fans but nothing like what Joey has - he has over two million followers on Twitter, I have 250k.

"That's still a lot but even so he has 1.75m more than me so it's like, what has happened?

"It's way beyond my expectations. I never expected to be here in the final. I'm absolutely gobsmacked."

Emanuel said: "I'm deeply honoured, I can't quite understand this whole thing, and all I know is that I've had the most amazing time in here."
