After three weeks in the jungle, former England Lioness Jill Scott was crowned the winner of I'm A Celebrity 2022

Ant and Dec revealed that she had received the majority of the more than 12 million votes they received for the final, so it sounds like she won by a significant lead. Owen Warner was the runner-up. (We also have a full rundown of all the I'm a Celeb winners to date).

ITV later revealed that Jill got exactly 57.66 per cent of the vote, with Owen getting 42.34. 

Jill's victory was watched by the show's biggest audience in recent memory. ITV revealed that the I'm A Celebrity 2022 final was watched by an average of 10.1 million viewers across the show, making it the highest-rated final since 2018. This figure also represents a 3.6 million increase compared to the viewership for last year's final.

For the past two series to the 2022 outing, the show had been broadcast from Gwrych Castle in Wales due to travel restrictions and, because of this, we saw a King and Queen of the Castle crowned in the new location, with author and podcast host Giovanna Fletcher and former Emmerdale star Danny Miller winning the 2020 and 2021 competitions.

But I'm a Celebrity 2022 took us back into the jungle camp, which was revamped for the new series. Show bosses promised that this year we'd see more Bushtucker Trials than ever before.

If you missed any of the action from the I'm A Celebrity 2022 final or want to learn who took part in the latest series, we've recapped everything that happened below. And don't forget I'm a Celebrity 2023 is almost here!

I'm a Celebrity 2022 release date

I'm a Celebrity 2022 got underway on Sunday, November 6, right after The Masked Singer: I'm A Celebrity special (and starting slightly earlier than normal due to the World Cup 2022 in Qatar).

The series finished on Sunday, November 27 with the live final. If you want to revisit any episodes from the latest series, you can stream it on ITVX (the streaming service replacing ITV Hub).

Who won I'm A Celebrity 2022? 

As previously stated, England Lioness Jill Scott was crowned the winner of I'm A Celebrity 2022. 

Is there a trailer for I'm a Celebrity 2022?

The most recent teaser we got ahead of the show's return saw Ant and Dec flying over the Australian jungle in a helicopter... but while Ant can't wait to jump out and parachute into the camp, Dec isn't quite so happy about launching himself out of the moving aircraft! Once the pair have made the leap, their parachutes open to read 'We're back'...

The first trailer released at the start of October was a blink and you miss it teaser! The ten-second video saw a suitcase dropped out of a helicopter and into the Australian jungle.

You can watch the trailer below...

ITV gave us a spooktacular treat on Halloween by announcing the I'm A Celebrity 2022 lineup! Below is the original cast announcement and details of the lineup from series 22.

Olivia Attwood

Former Love Island star Olivia Attwood was the final star in this year's I'm A Celeb starting line-up, but she was the first one to leave the show this year. Since leaving the villa behind, she's become a TV presenter, having fronted ITV2's Getting Filthy Rich earlier in the year. 

Unfortunately, Olivia had to quit the show for medical reasons just 24 hours after heading into the jungle, and medics did not allow her to head back into camp. On November 13, Olivia Attwood revealed why she left the jungle: some blood tests had revealed she was 'dangerously anaemic'. 

Charlene White

ITV News presenter and Loose Women panellist Charlene White said she was looking for a new challenge and felt like I'm A Celebrity was the perfect opportunity. 

"“There aren’t that many opportunities to have when you get older and it will be nice to see if I can do this", she said. "I’ve given birth to two kids in quick succession, survived that and lived to tell the tale! So, I feel it’s now right to take on another big challenge.”

She was the first celeb to leave after the public vote. 

Scarlette Douglas

TV presenter Scarlette Douglas's dream of becoming the next Queen of the Jungle has sadly come to an end, as she was the second celeb to leave the show behind. 

Before the show started, she said: "If I were crowned Queen of the jungle, it would be such a big moment for me. I think I would lose it! I have always worked hard but for whatever reason some people have doubted me. And so, if I were to win this show, it would be for everyone who questioned me, tried to break me, or put me down", she said. 

Sue Cleaver

Corrie legend Sue Cleaver has decided to leave the cobbles behind as she wants to 'shake things up' as she approaches her 60th birthday.

 "Doing I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is never really something I considered doing before, but the pandemic happened and then this year, I have just turned 59 and so I decided for my 59th I was going to shake things up a bit."

"I realised I needed something that would challenge me and thought this show would be good - and so that's why I am doing it", she said. 

Boy George

Pop icon Boy George joked that he doesn't think the jungle will be nearly as difficult as all the time he's spent touring the world before heading in.

"I watch I’m A Celebrity every year and I had to think long and hard about this. But I feel like I am in a very fertile creative moment in my life. I am in a moment of rediscovery of who I am as a person, artist and older man and I feel like I do make a lot of effort to be in pop culture.", he said, adding that he's "bored of being iconic in the corner".

He became the fifth celebrity to leave the jungle behind on Tuesday, November 22.

Babatunde Aleshe

Comedian Babatunde Aleshe is leaving his Celebrity Gogglebox co-star Mo Gilligan alone on the sofa for a while so he can head into the jungle and be at the center of all the action. 

It sounds like he won't be having the best time down under, as he said he's scared of "absolutely everything" and that he knows he "will be doing a lot of screaming for sure!" He left the show on Wednesday, November 23.

Chris Moyles

British DJ Chris Moyles was one of the frequently rumored contestants so it's probably no surprise that he's part of the confirmed lineup for this year. 

It sounds like even getting into camp is going to be a struggle for Chris, as he's admitted he is petrified of heights, and he still doesn't know why he signed on for the show. "Some people say if something scares you, then do it. But I am a firm believer you shouldn't scare yourself!" he said.

He left camp on Thursday, November 24.

Seann Walsh

Seann was the other late arrival teased at the end of the third episode of the series. The comedian has toured the UK with his stand-up shows and has appeared on panel shows like 8 Out of 10 Cats and Mock the Week. In 2018, he took part in Strictly Come Dancing, where he was paired with professional dancer Katya Jones.

He left the show on Friday, November 25.

Mike Tindall MBE

Former England Rugby Union star Mike Tindall has been revealed as the heavily rumored royal contestant that is going into the jungle this year—he's married to Princess Anne's daughter, Zara—and he thinks his old teammates will be determined to see him doing all the trials! 

"I am fully aware that anyone who has ever played rugby will go, 'Yeah let's stitch him up'. All my friendship group has that sort of humour and I know they will definitely want to vote for me! I am prepared to do quite a lot of challenges", he said.

Mike narrowly missed out on a spot in the final as he was voted out on Saturday, November 26.

Matt Hancock MP

Just one day after the lineup was revealed, news broke that former health secretary Matt Hancock would be in I'm A Celebrity 2022. According to a source close to Hancock at the time, (as reported by Sky News) Matt thought heading into the jungle would be "an incredible opportunity for him to engage with the 12m Brits who tune in every single night."

The MP was officially confirmed as one of the late arrivals in camp after being teased in the series' third episode. Matt was very open about his new venture leading up to his arrival, telling The Sun that he would use his appearance to promote his work on dyslexia and that he'd be donating some of his rumored £40,000 appearance fee to St Nicholas Hospice in Suffolk and causes supporting dyslexia. 

Matt came in third place in the series.

Owen Warner

Hollyoaks star Owen Warner is swapping the leafy streets of his soap for the Australian jungle. He's definitely up for the challenge, as he's told all his friends to vote for him to do as many trials as possible!

"I want to enjoy everything about it", he said. "I have told all my friends to vote for me because I will feel like I have wasted it if I don’t do the trials. The trials are part of the I’m A Celebrity experience. It’s great to be going to Australia, the OG format."

Owen made it all the way to the final but came in second behind Jill Scott. 

Jill Scott MBE

Jill Scott is one of the Lionesses who helped England score the big win and lift the trophy at the Women's Euro final earlier this year. Having retired from football, Jill's swapped the football pitch for the jungle! 

She's described 2022 as her best ever year and says she's got "a big of imposter syndrome to even be on I'm A Celebrity", but wants to throw herself into the show as best she can.

Who's definitely not going to join the show?

We included a list of rumored celebs ahead of the official lineup here, with possible names including Danny Dyer and drag star, The Vivienne. However, one celeb who's made it abundantly clear that she won't be heading into the jungle later down the line is the Queen of breakfast TV, Lorraine Kelly. Despite talk that she could be taking part in this year's show, Lorraine quashed the rumors with a hilarious tweet, revealing that she won’t be taking part in a Bushtucker trial anytime soon.

The tweet read: “FFS - again another terrific show to watch but there’s no way on God’s green earth I’m eating a kangaroos bum hole in front of @antanddec (or indeed anyone - or alone - just no!).”

We'll take that as a firm no, then! 

Where was I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2022 set?

I'm a Celebrity returned to its usual home in the Australian jungle after a two-year break for series 22. 

In exciting news, there is also a new set reportedly being built especially for the show's return to Australia, according to The Sun. The website has reported that the new set will be bigger and better than before, with wild west-themed challenges area and the return of the iconic interview hut. 

It was also reported that ropes could be seen attached to several trees above a swimming pool, which had been filled with very dirty-looking water. 

Ever since the second season of the show in 2003 (aside from the two years in Wales, of course!) I’m A Celebrity has been filmed at Springbrook National Park, near Murwillumbah, New South Wales, Australia. The 15,310-acre space is about 100 miles south of Brisbane and is actually more of a rainforest than a jungle! 

Who presented I'm A Celebrity 2022?

Unsurprisingly, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly were back at the helm once again, bringing us all the drama from down under live from the jungle.

Medic Bob leaves the show

ITV  revealed that much-loved I'm a Celebrity icon Medic Bob had made the decision to leave the show after two decades. The Australian medic, Robert McCarron, fondly known as Medic Bob, has been a part of the show since 2002 and became a household favorite giving the celebrity contestants medical care and expert advice.

Some of his most memorable moments include helping TV star Gillian McKeith after she "fainted" in 2010, flushing out a cockroach from javelin thrower Fatima Whitbread's nose in 2012 and pulling out a cricket from football legend Harry Redknapp's ear in 2018.

However, the Australian outback was without its stalwart resident Medic Bob, who was reportedly too busy to feature in the upcoming series, according to The Sun.

What is I'm a Celebrity All Stars? 

I'm a Celebrity All Stars is a spin-off from the main series and will see iconic campmates from over the years returning to take on some new challenges — and it'll take place in a brand new South African camp.

The new stand-alone show will run in addition to the usual annual ITV program and isn't likely to air until 2023. Ant and Dec spoke about the All-Stars series while on This Morning back in April...

Ant told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "I don't know why [an all-stars series] has never been done before. But it's a spin-off from the main show where we've got ex-campmates who've all come together in South Africa, competing challenges, trials..."

Realising that his presenting partner may have given too much away, Dec added: "I think it's a secret..."

"It's going to be great," Ant added. 

Which celebrities are taking part in I'm a Celebrity All Stars? 

According to The Sun spin-off show, I'm A Celebrity All Stars, will star Phil Tufnell, Amir Khan, Paul Burrell, Jordan Banjo, Andy Whyment, Dean Gaffney, Shaun Ryder, Gillian McKeith, Carol Vorderman, Georgia Toffolo, Helen Flanagan, Janice Dickinson, Myleene Klass, Joe Swash and Fatima Whitbread. 

Where can I watch old episodes of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!

If you're in the mood to revisit past seasons of the show, you can find older episodes of I'm A Celeb available to stream on-demand on ITVX.
