    News Swash crowned king of the jungle

    Swash crowned king of the jungle


    Swash said his jungle experience had been 'brilliant'


    Former EastEnders actor Joe Swash has been voted as the winner of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
    The star beat former Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova to be crowned "king of the jungle", with ex-Star Trek actor George Takei finishing in third place.
    Swash, 26, who played Mickey Miller in EastEnders, said: "I can't believe I'm the last one out of here."
    He is the eighth winner of the ITV1 series, which challenges celebrities to live in an Australian jungle camp.
    "It's been an amazing three weeks - it's been everything, it's been ups, it's been downs," Swash told presenters Ant and Dec after being announced as the winner.
    'Down-to-earth'
    "It was just a lovely experience and I'm definitely coming out a much more mature man than I was when I went in there."
    He said the worst trial he had faced while in the jungle was eating bush tucker.
    Swash, who was axed from EastEnders in February, formed a close relationship with Takei, whom he called "Gorgeous George", and was well-liked by his fellow campmates, who described him as "charismatic", "down-to-earth", and "funny". Martina Navratilova and George Takei finished second and third


    He was crowned by a former winning contestant, singer Matt Willis, and his wife, TV presenter Emma Griffiths.
    When asked on ITV2 what would be the first thing he would do when he left the jungle, Swash replied: "I want to get home and phone my sisters, my little boy and my girlfriend and the rest will follow."
    After leaving the camp, Navratilova, 52, said she had taken on the challenge of being in the jungle as she had not known what the show was about.
    "I learnt I can adjust pretty well to any situation and creepy crawlies weren't as bad as I thought they were," she said.
    'Savoury and nutty'
    Earlier, Takei, who played Mr Sulu in Star Trek, described his time in the jungle as an "unforgettable experience" saying: "The greatest gift has been the friendships I have made."
    On their last day, the finalists each had to complete a bush tucker trial to win a three-course meal for camp. PREVIOUS WINNERS
    2007 - Christopher Biggins
    2006 - Matt Willis
    2005 - Carol Thatcher
    2004 - Joe Pasquale
    2003 - Kerry Katona
    2002 - Phil Tufnell
    2001 - Tony Blackburn


    Swash successfully lay in a pitch-black hole for 10 minutes, with rats and eels for company, to win three fully prepared starters with drinks, although he added afterwards: "I smell like a hamster."
    Takei, the show's oldest contest at 71, was subjected to its infamous bush tucker eating trial to win main courses for the group.
    He described eating cockroaches as "quite savoury and nutty" and locusts as "crunchy and toasty".
    However, eating a "rubbery" kangaroo's penis was "the final straw" and he passed on eating a camel's testicle to win a special treat.
    Navratilova's head was locked into a sphere that was filled with insects, spiders and snakes to also successfully win three desserts for camp. Ten celebrities initially entered the jungle, before former children's TV presenter Timmy Mallett and former Dollar singer David Van Day caused waves as late additions to the camp.

    The best man won. He was my favourite from after watching his first bush tucker trial.

    Any of the last three would have been OK by me.

    Good result, I'm glad Van Day didn't get in the top 3 as well. Fucking girl.
    I did think Joe was a little 'generous' with his lip action with George though.

    I agree, the best man won but it would have been pretty dull without D.V.D. I enjoyed watching him wind up super boobs.

    Aye David played his part and played the game well and certainly made it a lot more interesting. Who wants to watch everybody getting along all day like best friends? It wouldn't be very exciting. You need someone to go in and ruffle a few feathers.
