ITV’s all-stars edition of I’m A Celebrity reached the final hurdle, with the final campmates on a mission to be named the first I’m A Celebrity legend on Friday, 12 May.

Myleene Klass, Jordan Banjo, Fatima Whitbread, and Phil Tufnell got through to the top 4 after Thursday night's show, but the final started immediately with an elimination.

The show saw the quartet be whittled down to a top three by the campmates who exited the series, and it was revealed that the person they had chosen to leave was Phil.

Once this was revealed, the three remaining celebrities tackled another gruesome trial, the Critter Countdown, which saw them put their hands and feet into boxes that were covered in critters, and a helmet which was then filled with snakes.

Myleene, Jordan and Fatima had to try and press a buzzer as close to the six minute mark as possible, and in the end Myleene and Jordan went through after Fatima failed to push the buzzer until after the 15 minute mark. Now the top 2 are set to take on the last trial that awaits them in order to be crowned at the end of the show.

With Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly presiding over the competition, things heated up in the race to the finish line.

Jordan and Myleene went head to head in a final eating trial, in which the duo were presented with nine dishes, each with an item more gruesome than the last. In order to win the point the person who said the higher number would have to try and eat that exact number of items within five minutes.

With food like mice tails, impala eyes, and pig snouts to chow down on, Jordan and Myleene gave it their all and remained neck and neck until Myleene chose to change tactics with three dishes left to go by writing increasingly larger numbers so that she could get the chance to win.

Her tactic proved to be the right thing to do because she got ahead after successfully eating 60 mice tails and then 40 spoons of stinky tofu. In the end she was crowned the I'm a Celebrity winner.

After succeeding, Myleene spoke about how different her second time on the show was to the first and commented on how being a mum gave her "a superpower."

As she sat on her throne, Myleene added: "They say lightning doesn't strike twice in the same place but it did, everything was magical."
