Stacey Solomon is hoping to become an international pop star after being crowed Queen of the Jungle.

The Essex-based mum-of-one - who beat off strong competition from Happy Mondays star Shaun Ryder to be voted as winner of 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' on Saturday night (04.12.10) - is hoping taking part in the show will help her to secure chart success.

Stacey - who reached the 'X Factor' final last year - said: "I could do Essex pop! Brilliant. A new genre!"

However, for the time being, the 21-year-old star admitted she can't wait to get back to the UK and "go down the pub".

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I can't wait to get back to my home in Dagenham. I'm going to see my friends and go down the pub for a Malibu and pineapple. Maybe two."

"Now I'm just trying to get back to normal. I had a bath, shower, bath, shower. I got in the bath and I thought, 'Ooh, this is nice'. But then I saw bits of the jungle floating around the bath. There were worms in there and everything. I screamed, 'Get me out of the bath!'"

The budding singer - who said she enjoyed "every minute" of the ITV1 show - was encouraged to enter 'I'm A Celebrity...' after receiving a text from 'X Factor' judge Dannii Minogue.

Stacey explained: "That's when I decided to go for it."
