It's safe to say the fans are delighted, with many taking to Twitter to share their excitement.

"Lioness, European Champions, Queen of the Jungle," wrote one. "Jill Scott, what an absolute legend!"

"Nobody deserves it more than Jill honestly," said another, while a third added, "Yay my winner from the start! Get in Jill, worthy winner!"

It's no surprise the footballing legend took home the gold, having been a fan favourite from the start.

As well as being down to earth, kind and entertaining, she was also great at keeping her cool during the dreaded Bushtucker Trials.

One person who didn't quite receive the same reaction from viewers was Hancock, who has proven to be a controversial contestant from the start.

All of his co-stars took the opportunity to grill him over the mistakes he'd made as an MP, including Jill herself.

Earlier on in the season, she didn't miss her chance to have a cheeky dig at him when he was crowned camp leader.

The disgraced former Health Secretary took on the responsibility after defeating Mike Tindall in the leadership battle.

Following his win, his deputy Charlene White joked: "Does this win feel sweet, especially after you lost to Boris? Do you feel like you have been vindicated?"

To which he replied: "This more than makes up for it."

Following Hancock's victory, the ex-England player didn't waste any time in mocking him over his past indiscretions.

The 35-year-old asked: "'Just to be clear, are these guidance or rules?"

Back at home, as we all expected, the public continuously voted for him to do the Bushtucker trials.

His first trial, The Beastly Burrow, was Hancock's introduction into the reality TV show and jungle life.

Alongside comedian Seann Walsh, the politician achieved six stars out of a possible 11 and went back to camp for the first time to meet the fellow celebs.

And as you'd expect, they were shocked to see Matt Hancock walk into camp.

Shortly after he arrived, Chris Moyles said in the Bush Telegraph: "Oh my god, two new people have arrived. One of them is Seann Walsh and the other one… I've got to go back and double check!"

Coronation Street's Sue Cleaver added: "I don't know what to say."

Meanwhile, singer Boy George predicted: "You're really going to get it. You're really going to get it. Not from me. I mean just from…"

And wasn't he right, as following his first day, Hancock did trial after trial after trial.

Nearly three weeks in the camp, the MP ate cow's anus and a sheep's vagina, while also taking part in the Tentacles of Horror.

With two years in Wales, it was great to see I'm a Celeb back in its home in Australia.

Now, it is time to start speculating about next year's campmates...
