Stacey Solomon was crowned Queen of the Jungle last night (04.12.10).
The former 'X Factor' contestant beat off strong competition from Happy Mondays star Shaun Ryder in a final live bush tucker trial to win the public vote and emerge victorious on ITV1 show 'I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here'.
Speaking after her win was announced a visibly shocked Stacey, 21, said: "What the hell just happened? Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I don't know what to say."
All of this year's contestants returned to see Stacey crowned queen of the jungle including Britt Ekland, Alison Hammond, Dom Joly, Lembit Opik, Gillian McKeith, Aggro Santos, Kayla Collins, Linford Christie, Sheryl Gascoigne and Jenny Eclair who finished in third place on Friday's show (03.12.10).
Single mother Stacey - who has a two-year-old son Zach - came third on last year's 'X Factor' behind Olly Murs and Joe McElderry, however she has not managed to land a record deal since leaving the show.
Stacey's sister Jemma told the Sunday Mirror that the star is hoping her 'I'm A Celebrity' win will help her finally start a music career.
Jemma explained: "Stacey is grateful for what she's got but I know she would love to have a record deal.
"She would love to do a proper album. It's always been her dream to make a living from music and provide for Zach."
