Last nights I’m a celebrity final was pretty epic. As I had predicted/hoped Fatima was voted out 3rd last night. She was clearly gutted as being an Olympic athlete she is SO competitive. I was so happy to see both Dougie and Mark in the final 2 !!
The final challenge in order for them to win a 3 course meal for themselves was gruelling, both were served 8 courses and they could choose whether to eat what was in front of them or to pass. Having struggled and losing against Freddie Starr in the first eating challenge Mark was obviously keen to give the challenge a go again and managed to successfully gulp down his “cocropolitan” of blended cockroaches. Dougie was forced to eat emu liver…afterwards he stated “it wasn’t that bad it tasted like blood and liver”
They supported each other throughout with Mark telling Dougie at one point: ‘It’s just a bit of meat. Eat it like it is a bit of meat, sitting here like we are having a Chinese meal’.
After doing an amazing job they returned to camp. Dougie threw up and Mark read out the menu for their last dinner together in the jungle.Tucking into their last meal together, they enjoyed garlic bread, lasagne, chocolate brownies and sticky toffee puddings as a reward for their success.
The part which really made me laugh was when they cuddled up together after the meal showing their ‘bromance’ to the viewers at home!
Apparently a few days ago Mark Wright was favourite to win. I knew Dougie would due to the fact that he has been in the media longer and probably has a bigger fan base. As much as I feel he was a worthy winner, I was GUTTED for Mark…Dougie didn’t need the fame boost, Mark did. To be honest I’m hoping to see more of both of them on our TV screens soon.
When Dougie won he seemed to be genuinely in shock. The McFly musician was speechless after I’m A Celebrity hosts Ant and Dec told him he had won the series. He managed only to say: ‘I’m lost for words. My mouth is so dry. It’s been the best couple of weeks in my life.’
I wish them both all the best as they were my favourite personalities throughout the competition and made this years show into pure entertainment!
