I'm A Celebrity 2012 runner-up Ashley Roberts on her jungle experience

I'm A Celebrity 2012 final - Ashley RobertsFormer Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts has said she'll 'always be proud' of herself for coming second on I'm A Celebrity 2012.

The 31-year-old - who lost out to Charlie Brooks in tonight's final - spoke to presenters Ant and Dec just before they announced the result.

After being shown her 'best bits', Ashley said: "What a journey! That was so cool to see. I'm excited to be out and just to see that is like wow.

"We really had some amazing times. It was a rollercoaster ride."

She continued: "I think the fact that people arepicking up the phone to vote is a little surreal. No matter what I'll walk away proud of myself."

Ashley talked about the various Bushtucker Trials she was involved in. Describing how she felt before the first, 'Terror Train', she commented: "You have so much adrenaline, you just wanna push through and get it done and bring back stars to camp so everybody can eat well."

She described Celebrity Cyclone as 'so much fun', saying: "I would do that with my friends on the weekend."

But she wasn't so complimentary about her last challenge, 'Final Feast', which saw her join Charlie in scoffing different jungle 'delicacies'. "I had some time to think about it afterwards. The whole thing was disgusting.

"The eyeball had so many layers and textures. The first part was really tough, then it popped inside, gooey, and there was some little crunchy thing in the middle. Great!"

Ashley also discussed her role as camp meddler, complimenting her partner-in-crime David Haye.

"He was good. He's that every day, he's always winding people up, but on the scream factor it took him a while to come around," she said.
