Comedian Fiona O’Loughlin was last night announced as winner of TEN’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
O’Loughlin defeated singer Shannon Noll and boxer Danny Green who was second runner-up.
The finale capped off 6 weeks of isolation and extreme challenges for O’Loughlin whose personal story of overcoming alcoholism touched viewers.
O’Loughlin proved to be a grounded participant, including taking David Oldfield to task over his views on Indigenous Australia. Her comedic “Brenda & Ron” banter with comedy star Peter Rowsthorn were one of the show’s more colourful inclusions.
“I just feel like the luckiest duck alive,” she said.
“Without a doubt the jungle has changed me. I will never take anything for granted again.”
She wins $100,000 for her chosen charity, Angel Flight.
Meanwhile Shannon Noll has coming second in a reality series once again, but won a legion of new fans for his true-blue qualities.
“I wasn’t sure how I would go with this and I turned out to be way tougher than I thought it would be. I think it is great to test yourself. That is how you find out what you’re made of. I would love to not come second this time,” he said.
O’Loughlin becomes the second female to win the Aussie series, following Casey Donovan’s 2017 victory.
