Soap star Adam Thomas admits: 'I wish I'd won I'm A Celebrity'

Emmerdale star Adam Thomas finished in third place on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

And reflecting on it all, he’s told This Morning’s Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield he wishes he had won the ITV show.

Scarlett Moffatt was crowned the winner, with comedian Joel Dommett named the runner-up.

Adam and Joel joined This Morning’s Holly and Phillip for a chat via Skype from Down Under.

Adam spoke about leaving the jungle, saying: “I had quite a little bit of champagne, I’m not going to lie! And spending time with my family and little boy. It was amazing.”

He was also reunited with his family, which he said “was the prize for me… that was like winning it – although I wish I had won it though! But seeing my girlfriend at the end of it was just unbelievable”.

Joel spoke about the friendly atmosphere in the camp that saw hardly any arguments erupt in the jungle.

He said: “I’m so glad that everybody got on and it was a harmonious year because I can’t deal with conflict… If I had to deal with the fear and the hunger and the being away from your family, plus not getting on with people, I think I would have walked.”

We’re betting given the result, he’s glad he didn’t.
