Tony Bellow has broken his social media silence after coming second in this year’s I’m a Celeb, having shared an adorable message to winner Sam Thompson.
He soon won both viewers and campmates, striking up strong friendships with a number of fellow contestants – including new BFF Sam.
After the show wrapped, Tony appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about his experience and what it was like living with the other celeb, who he was quick to praise.
"I had brilliant people in there with me,” he said, going on to list his favourites.
"Sam, Marvin [Humes], Frankie [Dettori], Nigel [Farage], Nick [Pickard]... the girls were all queens,” Tony continued.
"Anyone who doesn’t love Sam… Anyone who doesn’t love Marvin, Frankie, Nigel or Nick…"
He’s now been reunited with his social media accounts after handing them over for his time Down Under, and has clearly had even more time to reflect on his time in camp.
Posting a video on Instagram, he wrote in the caption: "I’m back! Just a post to say I’m back from an amazing adventure for me and my family!
“Met some lifelong friends and made some remarkable memories and some I would rather forget!! Massive thanks to my campmates, everyone involved @itv."
In the clip, he said he felt ‘over the moon’ after his time on I’m a Celeb, having never thought he could do as well as he did.
“I just wanna say a massive, massive thank you to everyone who voted for me while I was in the jungle,” Tony began.
“I’m over the moon I can't believe I got as far as I did. I don’t know why you voted for me but you did. Thank you very much.
“Have a wonderful Christmas and a great new year, and I’m back in control of my socials.
“Thank you again to everyone who voted. It's been a trip and a half.
He then went on to congratulate Sam, saying with a cheeky wink to the camera: "Sam, you was amazing lad, no-one deserved it more.”
