The Gogglebox star was up against Joel Dommett and Adam Thomas in the final three after Olympian Sam Quek was voted off in Saturday's show.

With the fewest votes, Adam left in third place, before voting reopened - and Scarlett looked stunned when hosts Ant and Dec announced she would be handed the crown.

It makes her the show's 16th winner, and the sixth Queen of the Jungle.

She said: "I might be the only person to say this but I wish I could do it all again.

"It's exceeded them beyond anything that I thought. I've never felt so happy. I just feel like I'm not going to be scared of anything any more."

Speaking before the final, Scarlett said winning would make her feel that being "a bit weird" did not matter.

She revealed she had always felt like an outsider - and said winning would be a big vote of confidence for her.

""As a kid, this will come as a surprise to you, I've always been a bit weird and I wasn't accepted in a lot of social groups," she said.

"So I feel that if I won I would be showing my little sister that it doesn't matter, you can just be you."

As their final challenge, each had to face their own bushtucker trial, competing for a feast for their final meal.

Emmerdale actor Adam was first up - and said he was not surprised to hear that his final task involved spiders.

The 28-year-old has previously revealed he had sought hypnotherapy to help him combat his extreme arachnophobia before heading into the jungle.

But he managed to keep his composure as he was put into a helmet with five stages of critters being poured in - including cockroaches, scorpions, and finishing with spiders.

Jumping around and brushing himself off after successfully completing the trial, he shouted: "It was so bad in there, I could hardly breathe. I did it. I knew you were going to put spiders into the last trial."

Comedian Joel, 30, had to munch his way through an unappetising menu of dead hawk moth, pig snout and fish eyes for his challenge.

At each stage, he was offered a delicious treat - such as pizza or a cooked roast chicken - as an alternative, but could only win stars by opting the jungle delicacy.

His hardest choice came when he had to opt for a goat's penis and testicles over a New York cheesecake - one of his favourite foods.

"You guys are killing me," he said, before whispering tenderly to the cheesecake: "I'll see you in a day, wait up for me."

Dommett said he was proud of himself for completing the challenge and said making it to the final had made him feel "special".

Gogglebox star Scarlett had to face one of her biggest phobias - her fear of small spaces - as she was sealed inside a small cave full of water and creepy crawlies, known as the Cavern of Claws.

The 26-year-old said she was frightened but determined to give it a go.

"I can feel myself getting upset, but I feel if I can do this I might finally be able to go in lifts, because I was on the 34th floor out here and I walked the stairs because I can't stand small spaces," she said.

She whimpered and looked tearful as rats and some 3,000 mealworms were poured into the space with her, but managed to grab the rest of her stars, saying: "Never again will I feel fear like this."

She joins previous winners including Tony Blackburn, Kerry Katona, Joe Swash, Stacey Solomon and Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison, who won last year.

First to be voted out this series was broadcaster Danny Baker, followed by radio DJ Lisa Snowdon, ballroom dancer Ola Jordan, dancer Jordan Banjo, mathematician Vorderman, actor Lamb, Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts, ex-footballer Wayne Bridge and Olympian Sam Quek.
