I’m A Celebrity 2012 winner Charlie Brooks has admitted that she doesn’t think winning the show will ever sink in.

In a surprise result tonight, the former Eastenders actress was crowned Queen of the Jungle in the I’m A Celebrity 2012 final.

Speaking after the result was announced on ITV1 this evening, Charlie said: “I’m so happy to be here, I feel so silly, isn’t that ridiculous?

“For me to have two women in the final was so important, I felt so happy. I don’t think it will ever sink in, I was scared I would go in the first show.”

Runner up Ashley Roberts had been widely tipped to win, but was edged out by Charlie at the last minute.

However the former Pussycat Doll singer wasn’t too upset about losing out in the final vote.

“It feels so good to just be out,” she said. “I’m just so happy to have been with this woman [Charlie] for the last 24 hours.

“I want to have drink, have a good time and have party!”

In third place was David Haye, who said: “They’re both the Queen of the jungle in my eyes. Charlie is a deserving winner, a great mother and a great person, I can’t imagine anyone having a bad word to say about her.”

I’m A Celebrity returns to ITV1 next autumn.
