McFly's Dougie Poynter takes jungle throne

Monday December 5, 2011

Dougie Poynter has been crowned king of the jungle on this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

He beat The Only Way Is Essex's Mark Wright to win the hit ITV show.

The pop star was shocked at his victory, saying: "I'm lost for words, my mouth is so dry."

Runner up Mark was delighted for fellow Essex boy Dougie – who he became close to in the jungle.

"He deserves it so much, he is the nicest guy in the whole world." he said.

On their last day together, the unlikely couple took part in one final bushtucker trial to win points for a slap-up feast of their choice.

After eating delicacies such as creepy crawlies, they were finally rewarded with servings of pizza, lasagne and chocolate brownies.
