Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt has been named queen of the jungle as she emerged victorious from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The 26-year-old, a front-runner for the title since early in the series, looked stunned as presenters Ant and Dec said she had beaten comedian Joel Dommett to the crown.

"I feel dizzy," she said, as she sat on her throne. "I can't believe it. Oh, my God."

She was crowned by Vicky Pattison, who won the previous series of the ITV programme.

Moffatt had been a fan of I'm A Celebrity since she was 10 and said she never dreamed she would one day win it.

"I might be the only person to say this but I wish I could do it all again," she said.

Asked if it met her expectations, she said: "It's exceeded them beyond anything that I thought. I've never felt so happy.

"I just feel like I'm not going to be scared of anything any more."

Comedian Dommett said he was thrilled just to make it to the last round and admitted he thought he had been "thoroughly unentertaining".

He said Moffatt was the right winner.

"She is the best human being I have ever met," he said.

He said he was going to miss the "simplicity" of living without news or social media and joked that he was looking for a sister show named "I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Back In There!"

Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas finished third and said it had been "amazing".

"What an experience. I would not have changed any of that for the world," he said.
