With another instalment of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! just days away, fans are preparing themselves to see 10 celebrities take on terrifying trials in a bid to win meals for camp.


Those taking part in this year's season include Sam Thompson, Jamie Lynn Spears and Nella Rose, who are all terrified of insects, but are ready to take on the challenge.

All of the famous faces will be competing to win the show and be named the king or queen of the jungle, and viewers will get to find out who that lucky person is in three weeks.

Last year saw Jill Scott scoop the crown, with Owen Warner and Matt Hancock coming in second and third place respectively.

However, there have been some slightly more surprising wins over the year, from former prime minister Margaret Thatcher's daughter Carol, who won in 2005, to Kerry Katona, who was Queen of the Jungle the following year, despite being scared of pretty much everything (especially spiders)!

With season 23 imminent, RadioTimes.com has put together a list of all the show's winners from the first series in 2000, right up to the reigning champ!

King of the Jungle, Harry Redknapp, captured the nation’s heart with tales of life in Stepney, his love for his “peng ting” wife Sandra, jam roly-polys and his unfaltering kindness. He had viewers in hysterics when during a Bushtucker Trial he shouted out “Yabba Dabba Doo” as campmate Noel Edmonds had to hold a Yabby in his mouth.

This “Toff” cookie proved that posh girls can get down and dirty. She met all jungle adversity with her infectious grin. Radiating positivity, combatting camp sexism and battling victoriously in Bushtucker trials, it was no surprise to viewers that this “Jungle Barbie” took home the crown. “When the going gets tough, Toff gets going”.

Runner up: George Shelley

“Why aye, man” this Geordie lass won viewers over with her ballsy Bushtucker trials, her Northern vernacular and the vulnerable revelations she made about the regrets of her reality-TV show past. It seems that once wasn’t enough for this Queen though, as she returned to the jungle in 2018 for I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here Australia on which she came fourth.

Runner up: David Emmanuel

From Westlife to wildlife, it didn’t take long for this King of the Jungle to establish himself as a leader. With his soft Irish voice, dazzling smile and his ability to combat any task (even the eating ones!) he was an absolute favourite to win. He made it his mission to keep the camp happy and audiences loved him for it.

Charlie Brooks

Year: 2012

Runner up: Ashley Roberts

From sobbing because she just couldn’t “stop thinking about fajitas” to wading through fish guts this feisty Queen was iconic during her stay in the Jungle. Some of our favourite moments include the time she told Helen Flanagan to “get a grip” and her dance to Pussycat Dolls’ song Don’t Cha. And hearts broke when Charlie failed to guess what door her daughter was hiding behind during a Dingo Dollar Challenge, leaving the pair unable to reunite.

Dougie Poynter

Runner up: Mark Wright

Dougie was a bundle of fun in the jungle, from his captivating bromance with Mark Wright (what happened to that friendship?) to bringing the bandana back into fashion. Some of our favourite moments include: watching him trying on a bra and the in-depth commentary of his time spent in the camp dunny.

Stacey Solomon

Throwing a stone at Dom Joly during a Camp Secret Mission and her heated debate defending women’s rights were our favourite Stacey Solomon jungle highlights. Since her stint in the outback, Stacey has become a popular TV personality and presenter. In 2016 she became a panellist on Loose Women and also presented I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!: Extra Camp. She has recently announced that she will become a regular panellist on ITV2’s Celebrity Juice.

Gino D’Acampo

Year: 2009

Runner up: Kim Woodburn

What a series! Gino and his gesticulations! From the drama of getting a tic, to declaring he was “very horny” to trying to set up his fellow campmates by asking if they wanted to see each other “dance around the fire naked”. His antics with Stuart Mannin, which saw them catch, kill and eat a rat, did cause controversy. The duo faced charges for animal cruelty. However, all charges were dropped after ITV accepted responsibility.

Joe Swash

Year: 2008

Runner up: Martina Navratilova

This cheeky chappy took the jungle camp by storm in 2008 from stroking campmate George Takei’s bum to gagging during eating challenges and for always sticking up for “the little ones”. After the series, he went on to co-present the spin-off series I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here NOW! He has been dating Jungle Queen Stacey Solomon since 2016. They have son Rex together.

Matt Willis

Matt lost a whopping two stone in the jungle, but he didn’t lose the crown – even though he went into the final day as the 8-1 underdog. During a Bushtucker trial, he ate a kangaroo anus, crocodile penis, crocodile eye and some mealworms.

Carol Thatcher

Year: 2005

Runner up: Sheree Murphy

She entered camp as a 33-1 outsider to win the Jungle Crown, but her self-deprecating humour, humility and down to earth nature captivated audiences. She admitted that the Iron Lady did not tune in to watch her competing in Bushtucker Trials, but some 10 million viewers did as she pulled down her knickers and squatted on the floor next to her hammock over using the camp dunny!

Joe Pasquale

Runner up: Paul Burrell

Making friends with emus, cracking up his campmates and becoming the first celebrity to win eight stars – it wasn’t a surprise when Joe Pasquale took the Jungle Crown. His eight-star victory in ‘Hell-O-Copter’ was dubbed the most dramatic and expensive trial ever.

Our first queen of the jungle! Learning to box with Peter Andre, her hilarious monologues and her rather long cuddle and a kiss with Katie Price were some of our favourite moments! Since leaving the jungle, she was a bridesmaid at fellow campmates Peter Andre and Katie Price’s wedding. Kerry Katona has also had her own reality TV show.

Phil Tufnell
