Another contestant has been crowned winner of I’m A Celebrity 2022 - we reveal who is the new King or Queen of the jungle.

Since the start of I'm A Celebrity, this year's cohort - including Lioness Jill Scott, Loose Women's Charlene White and musician Boy George - brought the campsite drama and bushtucker action.

But while we've kept you up to date with who is the favourite to win I'm a Celebrity 2022, we're now delighted to inform you who won I'm A Celebrity 2022 following a gripping final, before we look into the 2023 line-up...

Who won I’m A Celebrity 2022?

Jill Scott was crowned Queen of the Jungle when she won I'm A Celebrity 2022 after she was voted for by viewers to win the prestigious title, after the show received 12 million votes.

Upon winning, Jill, told show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, "I can't believe it."

Speaking about her campmates, she added, "These guys were absolutely incredible, we were one big team. I don't think there should be one winner, we are all winners of I'm A Celebrity."

Speaking about her time in the jungle which comes after she celebrated victory with teammates in the Women's EUROS 2022 final, Jill said, "There's been so many elements, like working together as a team and winning challenges and that feeling of getting to know incredible people like Owen."

She added, "I have never been one of the best footballers so I had to offer something, so I was always trying to keep team morale [up] and I think in that first trial, I was so scared of heights but seeing that one of my campmates needed me to get there to release them, it was a mindset of you've got to go and help. That was definitely a sports mindset."

Jill's team shared on Instagram, "It’s coming home, it’s coming, the jungle crown is coming home 🎶 To everyone who voted, thank you for making this happen 🗳️🥹❤️
Now time for that flat white ☕️😅 #imaceleb"

Meanwhile, Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner was revealed as the celebrity runner up, with the fewest votes out of the two, during Sunday night's show (27th November) - despite impressing viewers when he ate some gruesome dishes in his final challenge - including fermented duck egg, a wichetty grub, a camel's testicle and eyeball and a bull's penis.

"I am so gassed for Jill. No one deserves it more than Jill," he said. 

Owen revealed that he's learnt a lot from his jungle experience.

"When you're at a really low point in life, you learn what you're made of and in there I was really struggling," he explained. "There were a lot of big characters and I'm only 23. 

"I feel like I'm very much at the beginning of my journey, people have had a crazy journey and done so much stuff. I was comparing myself and I thought I can't compare myself. Realising that has helped me to mature and be comfortable with myself."

Matt Hancock came third in the Jungle. He told Ant and Dec, "I just wanted to show what I'm like as a person. Lots of people come to me with preconceived ideas for obvious reasons and I just wanted to be myself, but I also strongly believe that for politicians as a whole. We don't come across as human enough and this is perhaps the most extreme way of showing who you are."

"People think they know me but actually, they don't," he added.  

Matt was greeted by his girlfriend Gina Coladangelo as he left the Jungle and he gave thanks to viewers who voted.

"Massive thank you to everyone who voted for me🙏"
