Myleene Klass wins Im A Celeb South Africa and becomes first ever show legend

Myleene Klass has been crowned as the winner of the first ever I’m A Celebrity South Africa.

The former Hear’Say star beat her fellow I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Here! alumni, including former winners Joe Swash, Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, and Phil Tufnell, in taking the title.

Myleene was joined by Fatima Whitbread, Jordan Banjo, and Phil in the final four and faced the brutal Celebrity Cyclone together, with Carol Vorderman and Paul Burrell just missing out on making it to the final.

Going on to make it down to the final two with Jordan after Fatima lost the penultimate trial, Myleene proved victorious after defeating the Diversity star in the All You Can Stomach trial.

The pair were faced with eating things such as fermented eggs and impala eyes.

Speaking after the moment she was crowned as series winner, Myleene credited her kids for helping her push through.

She ended up beating Jordan 5-3.

Elsewhere in her exit interview, the mum-of-three admitted it was a more difficult choice to take part this time round compared to her initial 2006 stint.

"It was not an easy decision," she said.

"We sat down as a family and it was my children that made me say yes. The first time round I wasn’t a mum so there was no jeopardy if I ran around the jungle for a few weeks in a white bikini. I had the time of my life and took on a few challenges and then I came out and everyone knew me for having a shower!"

Myleene continued: "There are worse things to be known for having! I had a ball the first time. This time round, I’m a mum and that changes everything. You don’t want to let your children down, you don’t want to say something that will embarrass them. You don’t want to bottle out of a trial."

It was down to the campmates that had already left to vote for who they wanted in the final three in another brutal twist of the series, rather than a public vote.

Paul faced having to announce the difficult decision of who they’d picked as he revealed that they’d picked Myleene, Jordan and Fatima.

Speaking in the Bush Telegraph after the final three vote, TV favourite Myleene was brought to tears as she was overwhelmed with gratitude.

Elsewhere, Phil said he felt “a touch of sadness” after having not made it to the final three, but branded Jordan, Myleene and Fatima as being “very deserving” of making it through.

In his exit interview, the retired cricketer said that while he was “disappointed” to not get picked, he understood the other campmates’ decision as he’s been King of the Jungle before.

“Well look, a little disappointed. But I think everyone when they left, it felt right in a funny sort of way,” he said.

“I just thought thanks for the trip, thanks for the ride. It’s been a rollercoaster. I think they were fair when they said look Phil’s been a King, which I’m very proud of. I’m very proud of that fact."

Meanwhile, Fatima reflected on coming third for a second time.

She said: "Because I came third last time, I thought I knew the show and I thought it might be a good idea to go again and have a crack at winning it. Unfortunately, I’m third again but that’s not too bad. As I said, it felt like a completely different format to Australia. Much tougher. The trials are so much harder. Don’t get me wrong, I loved every minute of it."
