It’s official: we have royalty in our midst. Our very own Giovanna Fletcher has been crowned Queen of the Castle in the latest series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, beating other finalists, Radio 1 DJ Jordan North and presenter Vernon Kay on Friday night!

The show this year was located in Gwrych Castle, a 19th century castle, in Abergele, Wales instead of the Australian jungle which brought it’s own challenges to the contestants. Other contestants on the show this year included Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah, Coronation Street‘s Beverly Callard, former Strictly Come Dancingprofessional AJ Pritchard and actor Shane Ritchie.

We are so proud of Giovanna for battling creepy crawlies, taking each surprise in her stride and persevering to the very end. We hope she is having a well-deserved rest! Congratulations, Gi!
