Danny Miller has shot to victory to be crowned king of the I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! castle 2021.

He told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly that it was "so sick" and he was left "speechless" to win the show as he was crowned by his fellow campmate Frankie.

Sunday's live final saw Coronation Street's Simon Gregson, Emmerdale's Danny Miller and The Saturdays songstress Frankie Bridge compete for the coveted crown, after the shock axe of footie legend David Ginola on Saturday.

Frankie landed third place in the live final as she waved goodbye to her pals Danny and Simon and headed for home.

The singer confessed to presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly that she had her fingers crossed for Danny Miller landing the top spot because he is "such a fan of the show".

Danny and Frankie were one of the original campers in the castle, while Simon entered slightly late with EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt.

The results comes shortly after scenes showed the final three campmates take on their final Bushtucker Trial, with Danny going up against critters in Fill Your Face.

His helmet was gradually filled with bugs of all kinds, and he scooped a star for every two minutes he could stand in there.

Simon, meanwhile, headed off to Frightening Feast – a dreaded eating trial during which he was forced to scoff goat tongue and cow's vagina.

And for Frankie, it was the Tomb of Doom, which saw her locked inside a tomb for 10 minutes joined by snakes.

All three of the celebs seemed to be questioning their career choices at times, with Dec asking Danny if he was thinking: "What life choices led me to be here right now?"

Danny admitted: "I don’t know, but I’m going to ask my agent."

Frankie, meanwhile, admitted: "I can’t believe that this is my life" – but after the Trial she was all smiles as she beamed: "I can’t believe I’ve done it."

In celebration of their respective successes, the final three campmates sat down to enjoy one last dinner together – and it was quite a spread, featuring halloumi fries, roast beef, chocolate and even a cheeseboard.

Frankie said of the spread: "There was this big table with a white cloth on, real cutlery and glasses! I’ve not drunk out of glass for so long. It just looked like the perfect romantic meal for three."

And Simon added: "It was absolutely immense!"

Danny laughed: “This is a joke… this has been the first meal we’re eating off proper plates, real food cooked by proper people who are trained to do it and as far as I’m concerned, we’re going to eat the lot, from start to finish. I can’t wait!"

The celebs will now be heading back to their home comforts with their usual meals and reuniting with their families – and continuing with their busy schedule as they head back to work.
