After weeks of nail-biting anticipation, Ant and Dec have tonight crowned this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! winner.
Over the last week, we've slowly said goodbye to this year's line-up - with the exception of food critic Grace Dent and US actor Jamie Lynn Spears, who both left the show prematurely during the second week, citing respective 'medical reasons'.
Other than Grace and Jamie Lynn however, the remaining campmates have been voted off by the public each evening.
The public then eliminated Marvin Hulmes and the last star to receive the boot from the public was Josie Gibson who exited the show last night after narrowly missing out on a shot in the grand finale.
We've witnessed tears, triumphs and tantrums throughout this drama-filled series, including Nella and Fred's infamous feud, which kicked off within just days of the celebs entering the jungle.
After the First Dates star seemingly made an innocent comment about being old enough to be Nella's father, the social media star warned him that they'd never be friends again.
We've also seen Nigel famously become embroiled in several campmate rows about his controversial politics, and winner Sam hugging his co-stars more times than we could keep track of.
We saw former Zoey 101 star Jamie Lynn break down as she struggled to be away from her children, and TV host Josie revealed how she went from Big Brother contestant to presenting the biggest show on British daytime telly.
Boyband star Marvin taught his campmates JLS's iconic 'She Makes Me Wanna' dance, and the stars sung 'Happy Birthday' to boxing champ Tony.
But all the drama's came down to tonight's grand finale, during which Sam was crowned this year's winner.
He will be replacing last year's victor, footballer Jill Scott as the King of the Jungle.
Fans have since rushed to social media to share their praise with one X, formerly Twitter, user congratulating: "Sam absolutely deserves the crown! He brought so much positive energies to the series!
"He’s also a very open minded person and good hearted."
A second added: "Well deserved! Full of positivity!"
A third chimed in: "Absolutely fantastic news! Massive congratulations Sam!!!"
"The most deserved winner - loved him!" echoed a final viewer.
Well done, Sam!
