I'm A Celebrity 2015: Who was simply the best?

It's almost the end of this year's series of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! with the King or Queen of the Jungle being crowned tomorrow night (Sunday 7 December).

So, we thought it was time to look back on the series which will mainly be remembered for Lady Colin Campbell.

The controversial author, dubbed Lady C on the ITV show, was at the centre of much of the drama.

Reality TV’s late entrants Vicky Pattison and Ferne McCann were the definition of girl power while Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter was little more than eye candy.

Union J’s George Shelley broke down in tears and Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley sang Gold… but only after Lady C had departed.

Meanwhile, Ant and Dec were on top form. As always.

Here are our jungle awards.

Most ‘Marmite’ camp mate

Lady C.

Some loved her, many loathed her. But anything she did and said was TV gold.

Vicky Pattison.

The Geordie Shore lass surprised many who had previously judged a book by its cover.

Best argument

Because it was the first of many, soup-gate. The quarrel over what to do with a tin of soup resulted in Lady C calling Bannatyne a “mouse” and a “little p***y”.

He accused her of a “lack of breeding” and added: “What a nasty woman you are.”

But the argument continued even after the Scottish businessman branded her “the most selfish person” he had ever met.

Lady C’s rows with Duncan Bannatyne and Tony Hadley will be long remembered.

Best tears

George Shelley.

When it all got a bit much for the Union J star, the watching millions cried with him as he snuffled on Susannah Constantine’s shoulder.

Best insult

Lady C to Brian Friedman: “You are so full of s**t that if you ever took an enema you would disappear off the face of the Earth without trace.”

Most entertaining Bushtucker Trial

Disaster Chef.

During this vile eating trial involving Jorgie Porter and Lady C, the 66-year-old author used her knife and fork to cut up the jungle nasties on her plate.

Funniest moment

During Disaster Chef, Lady C was served Spaghetti B*****k-naise (beach worms with turkey testicles). She memorably asked Ant and Dec, “What are b******s?”

Best screamer

I'm A Celebrity's Ferne McCann

Easily Ferne McCann.

She hollered and wailed her way through a number of trials, but she stuck to her guns.

Funniest Ant and Dec moment

It has to be “walking like Eubank”.

When the boxer came up with a “walking sideways” strategy for a dingo challenge, Ant and Dec turned it into a hilarious running gag.


Watching the boys “walk like Eubank” was very funny indeed.


Best shower scene


This was Jorgie’s most memorable moment. By far.

Most unlikely friendship

TV stars Ferne and Vicky

The Only Way Is Essex’s Ferne and Geordie Shore’s Vicky were probably signed up in the hope they’d provide some fireworks. Instead, the girls became firm friends. It was a pleasure to watch.

Most shocking exit: Part I

Spencer Matthews.

After just one night in the jungle, Made in Chelsea’s Spencer departed “on medical grounds”.

He subsequently revealed he had to quit because he was taking “steroid-based medication”.
