    Viewers rushed to their keyboards to share their thoughts on Myleene's big win.

    Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Yes Myleene , fully deserved #ImACeleb."

    Another added: "Myleene deserved that. She’s a machine #ImACeleb"

    A third person posted: "Myleene you truly truly are an #imaceleb legend, well done girl!"

    While a fourth social media user: "After all that Myleene DEFINITELY deserves the title of legend."

    Myleene was pushed to her limit with a horror eating trial in the last episode of the series but didn't let the challenge get to her.

    In her first interview about the series, she said: "I’d never done an eating trial in my life and now I feel like I’ve done 10.

    "It was so gnarly. It was probably the worst thing I’ve ever done.

    "It was the grisliest challenge I have ever, ever put myself through

    "I would rather walk back out onto that platform which is over 1000 feet above sea level than put any of the stuff back in my mouth again, 40 spoons of fermented tofu which tasted like death. It was grim.

    "I put 60 mouse tails in my mouth. They kept repeating on me."

    Myleene credits I’m A Celebrity for changing her life.

    After her first stint on the show in 2006 she became one of TV’s biggest stars.

    She said: "I wanted to go to the bush as I wanted to say goodbye, to say thank you for what the jungle has given me.

    "The jungle back in Australia gave me my family, gave me my work, gave me my career. And this time round, it has been every bit as magical as I remembered it to be."

    Winning the series is emotional for her because she did it to inspire her daughters Ava, 15, and Hero, 11.

    She said: "You don’t want to let your children down. You don’t want to say something that will embarrass them. You don’t want to bottle out of a trial.“I wanted to show my girls and other little girls… keep walking through the fire.

    "In the 16 years since I last did the jungle, I’ve really been tested and had to really hold your nerve.

    "I just wanted my children to be proud of me regardless of what happened."
