Charlie Brooks has been crowned Queen of the jungle after the first ever 'I'm A Celebrity' all female final.

The EastEnders star beat former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts to the title.

An overjoyed Charlie said "everyone has been brilliant" and claimed she had no idea she would win.

The soap star added that the hardest thing wasn't the trials but the longevity of the show, calling it a "mental marathon".

She also claimed her and Ashley both just wanted to be "jungle princesses" together.

Charlie was joined by her daughter Kiki who ran on to the set for a huge hug from her mum.

And the other celebrities were shown praising the two finalists as "strong women" from their hotel rooms in a video clip.

The final feast

Earlier on Saturday's show viewers saw Ashley and Charlie eat a disgusting lunch of bug smoothies, fish eyeballs and turkey balls.

Charlie said: "I feel absolutely traumatised, it was the worst thing I've ever done in my life," and during the trial snapped "you are not a very nice person" at show host Ant.

Afterwards they were treated to a Mexican dinner to make up for it.
