Flintoff wins Oz's I'm A Celebrity

Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff has been crowned King Of The Jungle.

He won the Australian version of 'I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here', 10 years after smashing them in the Ashes.

After winning, he said: '"As an Englishman winning something in Australia, it's unheard of!"

During his month in the jungle, he has eaten a rat's tail, been covered in elephant manure, drunk fermented milk laced with cockroaches and flies, and fallen from a helicopter.

Flintoff beat Australian Football League player Barry Hall and TV personality Chrissie Swan to the title.

He added, "I'm shocked. I'm stuck for words a little bit. I never expected to get this far. It's a lot to take in really. I am shocked, surprised, pleased. I've got a lot of emotions going round at the minute. I'm humbled."

His win will see 100,000 Australian dollars donated to his chosen charity, the McGrath Foundation.
