It was Alex Scott who won Mission Survive 2016 last night with Bear Grylls praising her strength and courage.

The footballer triumphed over West End's Samantha Barks and Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner in the final challenges, which included climbing up mountains, starting fire and foraging for food.

Bear named Alex his Mission Survivor, telling the sports star: "I have a lot of respect for you."

Speaking after the final last night, Alex said: “I was so surprised I got that far, let alone go on and win the show, that just actually blew my mind."

Following the 12 day expedition across Africa, Alex went on to thank her fellow celebrities.

She told the Radio Times magazine: “I don’t think I would have got that far without the help of those guys in the first place."

Alex claimed that competitive Jason was "all out to win it" but for her it was all about the experience.

She said: “I think me and Sam were like, this is us, we’re not going to change and be different towards each other because that’s not in our personalities. Jason did really, really want to win the show.”

As for what's next, could we see Alex in another reality show very soon?

She teased: “I think I’d like to do something totally different from what I’ve just done. Strictly Come Dancing would be a big one. I do like a bit of dancing and some music!”
