Westlife’s Kian Egan wins I’m A Celebrity
11 December 2013 Latest News
Westlife star Kian Egan has been crowned king of the jungle on ITV show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
He beat fashion designer David Emanuel in the final on Sunday.
Egan said: “It’s been such a team effort. Everybody in here is a king and queen. It was probably one of the best three weeks of my life.”
Runner-up Emanuel, who designed Princess Diana’s wedding dress, said the singer was “a great guy – he thoroughly deserves it.
Egan said he would “highly” recommend his jungle experience to anyone although he said the fish eye he had to eat in his final trial was “probably the worst thing I’ve ever encountered”.
Emanuel, who this time last year was recovering from surgery for prostate cancer, said he thought if he could conquer his illness, he may have been able to conquer the jungle.
Egan said to him: “You’ve come in here and outlasted everyone else and that’s because you are a good guy and people vote for nice people.”
The singer confessed he had not expected to beat reality TV star Joey Essex in the outback.
“I have a fan base of Westlife fans but nothing like what Joey has – he has over two million followers on Twitter, I have 250,000.
“That’s still a lot but even so he has 1.75m more than me so it’s like, what has happened? It’s way beyond my expectations. I never expected to be here in the final. I’m absolutely gobsmacked.”
