Scarlett Moffatt bursts into tears as she is crowned I'm A Celebrity's Queen of the Jungle

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Here superfan Scarlett Moffatt has been crowned Queen of the Jungle.

The Gogglebox star looked stunned and burst into tears as she was named the winner by hosts Ant and Dec.

Asked how she felt, she replied: “Dizzy, I can’t believe it. Never did I think this would happen ever.”

She was crowned by last year’s winner Vicky Pattison.

Watching a video of her highlights before it was announced she had beaten Joel Dommett she said: “You forget everything that happened, I want to do it all again.”

Scarlett has watched the show since she was ten years old so when she was asked if being on it met her expectations, she replied: “It’s exceeded them beyond anything that I thought, I never felt so happy which is weird because I hate camping, I’m going to miss waking up and hearing everyone chatting.

“Sitting with people like Carol Vorderman at the the Big Bush Bake Off, it was just amazing.”

She said she has even conquered her fear of lifts because of her trials, saying: “I’m not going to be knackered from climbing up stairs now, I just feel like I’m not going to be scared of anything now.”

She even ticked off one of her must-dos by attempting the Celebrity Cyclone, saying: “Celebrity cyclone was on my bucket list, some people dream of winning a million quid but mine was doing the cyclone.”

She told Ant and Dec: “It was a learning curve, I feel like I need to have more confidence in myself because I do doubt myself, I didn’t expect to have any cliches, I would watch it and I was like ‘what are they crying for?’ but now I know. It’s mad.

“When I first walked in I felt like I had snuck in through the back door, I thought I would be voted out first and no one would know who I was, I was just a northern lassie who watches the telly.”
