I'm A Celeb South Africa Myleene Klass WINS as she's named show Legend trends now
Myleene Klass was crowned the first I'm A Celebrity Legend during the final episode of I'm A Celebrity... South Africa on Friday.
The musician and broadcaster, 45, beat Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, 30, after the pair became the remaining two stars to spend the final night in camp.
Former Hear'Say singer Myleene and KISS Breakfast host Jordan made it to the final four of the series along with Fatima Whitbread, 62, and Phil Tufnell, 57, on Thursday's episode, with Phil being voted out by the returning full cast of the show and Fatima leaving after losing the Critter Countdown trial on Friday.
With their former campmates watching on, Myleene and Jordan went head-to-head in a gruesome last trial as they predicted the number of a variety of nasties they would be able to eat before chowing down to see if they were correct.
After triumphing, Myleene - who first appeared on the show in 2006 - was named the I'm A Celebrity Legend after the King or Queen of the Jungle was ditched for this spin-off series, with the star saying: 'I’ve been in my element. I can’t believe what the jungle gave me first time and I’ve actually had the opportunity to relive it a second time round.

'It’s one of those things, it was so magical the first time you start thinking did I remember that as it was or have I recreated those memories?
'They say don’t go back to an ex and don’t go back to a reheated dinner. I thought to myself oh no, what if it’s not as good? And I’ve gone back into the bush and it’s been even bigger, more majestic, bigger trials. South Africa is vast.
'And it’s not been against any campmates, it’s been against the best of the best.
'It’s just been mind blowing. Everything was as magical, very tough – challenging both mentally and physically – and something that I’ve loved throwing myself into.'
Former pop star Myleene came out on top after entering the camp in Kruger National Park in South Africa late, with Jordan, former Olympic javelin thrower Fatima, former England cricketer Phil, television presenter Carol Vorderman, 62, former Royal Household butler Paul Burrell, 64, actress Helen Flanagan, 32 and ex soap actor Dean Gaffney, 45, amongst those taking part.
Also appearing in this series was former EastEnders cast member Joe Swash, 41, supermodel Janice Dickinson, 68, Coronation Street star Andy Whyment, 42, former Made In Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo, 28, former professional boxer Amir Khan, 36, TV nutritionist Gillian McKeith, 63, and Happy Mondays singer Shaun Ryder, 60.
Show bosses did not make it easy for final campmates Myleene and Jordan as they took part in the ultimate eating trial, with Ant remarking: 'If you do this, you deserve to be crowned the first ever Legend of I’m A Celeb!'
Watched on by their former campmates, the two stars were shown the jungle nasties they would be eating, with the stars suggesting the number of each item they thought they could eat in five minutes.
