JACQUELINE Jossa has won I'm A Celeb beating Andy Whyment into second place after a gruelling three weeks in the jungle.
The actress broke down in tears as she stormed to victory, before sharing a passionate kiss and cuddle with husband Dan Osborne.
There were tears galore as Andy and Jacqueline told Ant and Dec how much the show meant to them after learning they were in the final two.
Jac grew emotional as she told how she no longer wanted to be seen as a doormat after reports of cheating plaguing her husband Dan.
She said: "It was a turning point in my life. I went in as one person and came out as another. I've grown in confidence.
"It’s so easy to care what other people think of you like trolls and stuff. But in here you have to be you, there’s no other option."
She continued: "I can’t work out what’s happening. I’ve been known as Lauren from EastEnders or a doormat."
Roman Kemp finished third and called his experience "the best thing of my life" after greeting the hosts with a hug.
And he was stunned to learn he'd won more stars in challenges than any contestant in the last five years.
It was a love-in between finalists Jacqueline, Roman and Andy as they reminisced on their time and each took on one last Bushtucker Trial.
The trio were stunned to make it to the bitter end, with Jacqueline declaring: “I’m the last girl standing. I can’t believe it. Oh my goodness this is ridiculous, Jungle Jac is in the final.”
Roman said: “My legs feel like jelly I can’t believe that I can say I’m in the final. I would never have thought I’d get this far.”
While a tearful Andy told the Bush Telegraph: “I can’t believe it and I’m getting emotional I’m so chuffed. It’s just nice to know that people are voting for me, the person I am, it means a lot.”
They might have made it all the way, but they each had to face their fears one final time to win the traditional end of series feast.
Jac was first up with the Stake Out in a bid to win the trio delicious starters.
She had to lay down and remain in a giant star on the floor with her arms and legs tied down for 10 minutes as critters were poured over her.
Despite fears, cockroaches were going to crawl in her "nunny", she smashed it, winning starters for camp, a drink and a special treat.
Next up was Andy with the Bushtucker Bonanza eating challenge.
The actor did his best not to throw up as he munched a stomach-churning selection including a whole scorpion and a pig's testicle.
While he compared a crocodile anus to a Chinese pancake, making Ant and Dec chuckle.
Andy won all five stars to secure three main courses, Bacardi and diet coke and chocolate biscuits.
Finally Roman was tasked with the Panic Pit – an underground chamber in which he had to remain strapped on his back for 10 minutes.
For every two minutes he endured Roman won a star, but like Jac he was joined by loads of snakes.
He bravely completed the 10 minutes to win a full set of desserts for camp, a drink and special treat.
“That was absolutely terrifying,” he told the hosts after the challenge.
Ahead of tonight's final bookmakers revealed that betting figures plummeted to an all time low after 2018's record haul.
Punters dropped a huge £11m in bets last year, according to reports bookmakers.tv, whereas only £3m was placed on Bushtucker Trials and the Queen or King of the jungle this time around.
Bookies favourite Andy attracted bets of £500,000 to win the show, but that paled in comparison to the £6million put on last year's King Harry Redknapp.
A bookmakers.tv spokesman said: “Throughout the show, the public has simply failed to connect with this year’s participants, which has resulted that bookies have taken the least ever money on the hit show since it’s very beginning.”
Meanwhile last night Garraway narrowly missed out on a spot in the final.
However, the 52-year-old took the result in her stride telling Ant and Dec that Roman, Andy and Jacqueline deserved to be in the series showpiece.
