Dougie Poynter was crowned the new King of the Jungle on last night's (03.12.11) 'I'm A Celebrity. Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The McFly bassist beat former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star to win the ITV1 show and admitted he was stunned by his victory.
He said: "I'm lost for words, my mouth is so dry. These have been the best couple of weeks of my life. I wish everybody in the world could experience that."
Although he didn't win, Mark said there were no hard feelings as he was thrilled for Dougie because he really deserved it.
He said: "There couldn't be a better winner than this man here.
"He deserves it so much, he is the nicest guy in the whole world.
"When he was in the other camp, I was like, 'I want Dougie back in the camp."
Earlier in the show, the pair - who hugged each other as hosts Ant and Dec announced the results - took on a final Bushtucker Trial, which saw them having to eat items such as a cockroach cocktail, foul beechworms and blended emu liver.
However, their efforts paid off and the two men won a slap-up meal and celebrated making the final show with pizza and spaghetti followed by brownies and ice-cream.
