Swash crowned King of the Jungle

Joe Swash was crowned King of the Jungle in 2008's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
The 26-year-old former EastEnders actor won the public vote ahead of tennis ace Martina Navratilova in the ITV show's eighth series.

Earlier actor George Takei, best known as Star Trek's Mr Sulu, was booted off the final to boldly go into third place.

Joe, the sixth celebrity to become a jungle King, hugged Martina after he won saying: "You're my Queen, darling."

He told presenters Ant and Dec: "It's been an amazing three weeks. It's been everything, It's been ups, it's been downs.

"It was just a lovely experience and I'm definitely coming out a much maturer man than I was when I went in there. It's been worthwhile," he added.

He was crowned by a former winning contestant, singer Matt Willis, and his wife TV presenter Emma Griffiths.

Wimbledon legend Martina, 52, said she felt "just fabulous - happy for Joe".

Joe played wideboy Mickey Miller but was axed from the soap in February.

The actor, who has a 17-month-old son, Harry, prepared for the show by cutting down to two meals a day.
