Following her coronation, an emotional Jill, who broke down in tears, said: ‘I am unable to imagine it. I simply cannot imagine it. I believe I will owe my grandma quite a lot of money for the 12 million votes! I do not think there ought to be one winner, we’re all winners.’

Winner! The sports star, 35, beat politician Matt Hancock, 44, and Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23, within the grand final on Sunday evening after surviving 23 days within the Australian camp

‘I at all times say that is why kids must go into sport, it isn’t about moving into at the best level or anything like that. It’s what you learn through sport, winning, losing, exertions being person and you do not understand how you are going to react to rats and heights but having all those playing for incredible teams equipped me well for the jungle,’ she explained. 

She tried to be on her best behaviour within the jungle, knowing that her family at home could be watching, saying: ‘I used to be attempting to tone it down at first because I used to be like Jill, you are continue to exist ITV, your grandma’s watching, your nephews, your niece but then because it went on you simply forgot you were on a TV show.’

She was the one woman left in camp for eight days but says there was no need for her to maintain the likes of Matt Hancock and Mike Tindall in check.

Jill told Ant and Dec: ‘I never considered it like that, I didn’t. They were so welcoming. Obviously I’m a little bit of a tomboy anyway playing football. They weren’t like ‘oh, you sit down, and I’ll get the logs’, I still needed to get the water, the logs, the clean out the dunny. No, I never felt like that I never did.’

She was met on the red bridge by fiancée Shelly Unitt, who embraced the champion with a giant hug after the engaged couple spent over a month apart.

Jill’s victory caps off a momentous yr for the star after she played within the winning Euros team this summer.

Champion! Following her coronation, after 12million viewers voted, an emotional Jill, who broke down in tears, said: ‘I am unable to imagine it. I simply cannot imagine. I believe I will owe my grandma quite a lot of money for the 12 million votes! I do not think there ought to be one winner, we’re all winners’

The Lionesses were crowned 2022 champions in August after they defeated eight-times champions Germany to secure England’s first trophy since 1966.

‘Tomorrow is rarely guaranteed so I’m just at all times willing to offer it my all for that day.

‘So, I have never thought too far ahead about winning, I just need to go in there and regardless of what the final result is just sort of make my family proud.’

After living the experience, an emotional Jill said during Sunday night’s show that she was overwhelmed to have made the ultimate.

Jill takes the title from last yr’s winner, Emmerdale actor Danny Miller, who was King of the Castle in Wales.

Podcaster Giovanna Fletcher won the show in 2020 and EastEnders star Jacqueline was voted Queen of the Jungle in the course of the last series held in Australia before the pandemic.

Matt, 44, was beaten only by Jill and Owen to first and second place respectively, with the Lioness, 35, being crowned because the 2022 Queen of the Jungle.

He defied all expectations in making the grand final and after his exit, Matt admitted he decided to enter the jungle because he wanted to indicate the ‘lighter side’ to his personality.

Upon leaving the Australian jungle, Matt was reunited along with his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo and the pair shared an in depth embrace and kiss on the enduring bridge.

As they hugged, an overwhelmed Matt was heard saying ‘I like you a lot’ to his partner, who travelled greater than 9,000 miles to greet the Tory MP.

Matt lasted a formidable 23 days within the jungle, and took part in his final gruesome Bushtucker Trial before his exit in the ultimate – narrowly missing being crowned as Jungle King.

During his jungle stint, he served as Camp Leader and was voted to do six consecutive trials by the general public, including a gruesome eating trial alongside Boy George.

And after his exit, he spoke to hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly about his time within the jungle, saying he decided to hitch the show because he desired to know what he was like as a ‘person’.

‘I just wanted to indicate what I’m like as an individual. Numerous people come to me with pre-conceived ideas for obvious reasons, but I just desired to be myself,’ he said.

‘Politicians as an entire, we do not come across as human enough. That is an extreme way of doing that.’

‘People think they know me, but they do not. They know Matt Hancock from the TV and the media,’ he added. 

Reflecting on his time within the jungle over a glass of champagne, Matt also said he doesn’t think that politicians come across as ‘human’, saying he desired to prove otherwise.

He told Ant and Dec: ‘I just wanted to indicate what I’m like as an individual. Numerous people come to me with preconceived ideas for obvious reasons and I just desired to to be myself. I strongly imagine that politicians as an entire don’t come across as human.’ 

Speaking in regards to the controversy surrounding his arrival, Matt admitted he was ‘nervous’ to walk into the jungle and meet the opposite celebrities.

He said: ‘Once I first walked in, there was just Seann, and we got barely giddy. He makes everyone look good as he laughs at everyone’s jokes. After we walked into fundamental camp and discovered among the existing dynamics that was tough.’

Throughout the show, Matt was famously questioned by ITV newsreader Charlene White over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the way he broke his own social distancing guidelines when he was caught having an affair with aide Gina Coladangelo.

'I wanted to show the real me': And after his exit, he spoke to hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly about his time in the jungle, saying he decided to join the show because he wanted to know what he was like as a 'person'

‘I wanted to indicate the actual me’: And after his exit, he spoke to hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly about his time within the jungle, saying he decided to hitch the show because he desired to know what he was like as a ‘person’

But Matt said he was ‘grateful’ to his fellow campmates for having the ability to have ‘grown-up conversations’ despite their strong feelings, and admitted in addition they had a lot of ‘vital’ conversations about politics and his dyslexia.

He said: ‘We managed to speak about some vital things, not only politics narrowly but dyslexia, especially with Jill and George about growing up gay, all styles of interesting conversations.’

He added: ‘A few of those grillings were really enjoyable and a release, because I could say exactly what I believed, but some were really emotional. 

‘I feel it, but what I used to be in a position to do and what I used to be grateful for is that we had really grown-up conversations about it. We had strong feelings but there wasn’t any aggro.’

Matt also admitted he was well-aware that his entrance within the jungle was seen as controversial, but said he wanted to indicate the ‘lighter side’ to his personality.

‘I understand it was controversial me coming here, I do know people said people in your position shouldn’t put themselves in embarrassing situations,’ he explained.

‘There may be a lighter side to everyone’s personality. I went in clear I used to be going to be totally myself, as if the cameras weren’t on.’ 

When asked who he desires to win I’m A Celebrity, Matt said it was an ‘not possible’ query, before saying he wanted Jill to win. 

Lioness Jill and Hollyoaks actor Owen then joined hosts Ant and Dec to reflect on their time within the jungle before the last word winner was revealed.

Radio DJ Chris Moyles famously teased Owen by making up stories about his life in the course of the jungle after realising Owen didn’t know who he was, and Ant and Dec quizzed Owen in regards to the amusing moments.

Controversy: But Matt admitted they also had a number of 'important' conversations about politics and his dyslexia, saying he was 'grateful' to his fellow campmates for being able to have 'grown-up conversations' despite their strong feelings

But a shocked Owen admitted he wasn’t aware that Chris had made up any tales, sharing his complete surprise and asking a sheepish Jill whether she knew, to which she admitted that she did.

Reflecting on meeting huge stars within the jungle, Owen admitted he found it difficult to not ‘compare’ himself with everybody around him. 

‘There have been quite a lot of big characters, I used to be originally of my journey, and I used to be comparing myself, but I am unable to try this and I’ve got to live my very own journey. Realising that has made me comfortable in myself,’ he said. 

When asked what being crowned King of the Jungle would mean to him, Owen sweetly said: ‘This girl is a superstar, she’s a sweet, sweet soul. Seeing her crowned would win it for me, truthfully.’

Despite his jokes on Owen, Chris Moyles gushed over the actor as all the previous campmates shared their views on who ought to be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle. 

 ‘Little Owen, he has been good, I believe he shall be so blown away and grateful to be King of the Jungle,’ Chris said.

Meanwhile, Babatunde Aleshe said of Jill: ‘Jill is among the finest people I’ve met in my entire life, I like that woman, she’s incredible.’

Speaking about Jill before her crowning, Mike added: ‘Jill should win because she’s essentially the most real person in there, she’s one in every of the nicest and most infectious people I’ve met.’

Human side: Matt also admitted he was well-aware that his entrance in the jungle was seen as controversial, but said he wanted to show the 'lighter side' to his personality

But it surely was Jill who was crowned because the 2022 Queen of the Jungle after around 12million public votes – most of which went to the previous footballer – and after her victory, Owen admitted he was over the moon for her. 

He said: ‘I’m so gassed for Jill, I believe everyone agrees, no one deserves it greater than Jill!’

A thrilled Jill was presented together with her crown by her former campmate Mike, but she admitted that that they had all been a ‘team’ and there shouldn’t just be one winner as she gushed over her campmates.

Earlier in Sunday’s grand finale episode, Matt was forced to face one last gruelling challenge before checking out who shall be crowned Jungle King or Queen.

The previous Health Secretary, 44, was joined by fellow finalists Jill Scott and Owen Warner in collaborating of their individual final Bushtucker Trials.

For the primary time within the show’s history, the celebrities were forced to compete for stars in front of their fellow campmates in the ultimate, which producers hope will add increased tension among the many finalists.

They were each forced to tackle a gruesome challenge to win an epic final meal together in camp, consisting of a three-course banquet with a starter, fundamental, and dessert.

But it surely proved no easy feat as that they had to either tackle Flood Your Face, Bushtucker Bonanza, a second instalment of the show’s iconic eating trial, or Rat Race, which featured hundreds of bugs in a box.

And unlucky Matt was chosen for the dreaded Flood Your Face trial, where he needed to have his head submerged in a transparent container full of water as critters crawled over his face.

Explaining the trial, Declan Donnelly said: ‘You will sit in here along with your head within the tank which can fill with water. You will have a snorkel to breathe through and you will stay in there for five minutes. 

‘You will win a star for every minute you endure. It’s pretty straightforward, aside from the indisputable fact that this can be a Bushtucker Trial so there shall be some surprises along the best way in that five minutes.’

Meanwhile, Ant McPartlin added: ‘The primary three stars are to your three desserts, the fourth is to your drink and the fifth is to your treat.’

Critters: Earlier in Sunday's grand finale episode, Matt was forced to face one last gruelling challenge before finding out who will be crowned Jungle King or Queen

As Matt’s tank began to refill with water, various terrifying critters were also added to the box, including eels, yabbies and water spiders.

The gruesome trial saw a frog sit on top of Matt’s head while an enormous spider also crawled over his face in a single very scary moment.

Jill encouraged him: ‘Well in Matt, you are doing great!’ 

Although Matt looked very uneasy at moments, he bravely gave his fellow finalists and hosts Ant and Dec a thumbs-up as he braved the trial.

The Tory MP managed to secure all of his stars in the course of the five-minute challenge, adding to the epic feast for himself and his fellow finalists back in fundamental camp.

Owen, who has complained about his hunger in the course of the series, took on the dreaded final eating trial, while Jill braved Rat Race – and so they each won all their stars.

Earlier in Sunday’s episode, Matt had shared his shock that he had made it to the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! final alongside Owen and Jill.

He admitted he was thrilled to turn out to be a finalist after Mike Tindall was the eighth celebrity to be eliminated from the Aussie jungle in Saturday’s episode.

The politician said it was ‘unreal’ and he was ‘so grateful’ to have made it all the way down to the last three as he joined Hollyoaks star Owen and Lioness Jill in voicing their shock.

Speaking within the Bush Telegraph after Mike’s exit, Matt said: ‘I am unable to imagine I’m in the ultimate. It’s good… I’m just so grateful.’

Gross! Owen, who has complained about his hunger during the series, took on the dreaded final eating trial, while Jill braved Rat Race - and they both won all their stars

Meanwhile, Owen, 23, said: ‘I’m in the ultimate baby! What is happening? I do not know what to say, I do not know what to think… I would like to talk to my mum.’

After waving Mike off, the finalists all shared a bunch hug as they celebrated making it into the 2022 final.

Matt said: ‘That’s unreal!’

While a shocked Jill, 35, added: ‘I would like to simply sit down.’

Within the Bush Telegraph, former footballer Jill admitted she never thought she would make it ‘anywhere near’ the ultimate after seeing which celebrities were in camp.

‘Once I first stepped into the jungle and looked around at the entire celebrities, no way am I getting anywhere near that final,’ she said.

‘To be a part of the ultimate three with Owen and Matt, god, it just means the world, it really does.’

Ahead of their Bushtucker Trials, Matt said he was ‘delighted’ to be in the ultimate, while Jill said she was still ‘in shock’ over making it thus far in the competition.

Dec said: ‘Congratulations on making it to the ultimate.’

A shocked Jill replied: ‘Just in shock to be honest. I am unable to imagine we’re in the ultimate, I’ve watched it since being slightly kid. I’m still in shock to be honest.’

While Owen said: ‘It feels slightly bit mad to be honest.’

And Matt added: ‘I am unable to imagine it. I’m just delighted. I’m very grateful.’
