Jordan North and Giovanna Fletcher faced an agonising wait in the final moments of the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! final as Ant and Dec revealed which one of them would be crowned the first-ever King or Queen of the Castle. It was the podcast host who pipped her fellow campmate to the title – but the victory hasn’t gone down well with all ITV viewers.
“#ImACelebrity Jordan came through a lot, he should have won it,” said one disgruntled viewer after Giovanna was crowned the winner.
A second echoed: “Please tell me why. Lovely woman but why did she win over Jordan don’t get it. #ImACeleb.”
Another I’m A Celeb fan weighed in: “This has gotta be the most undeserving winner in I’m a celeb history?
“She legit did nothing, barely any trials, Jordan robbed. He faced his fears Gi faced the cooking… #ImACeleb #imacelebrity.”

And a fourth agreed: “Oh Jordan you was robbed plain and simple! Gi was nice enough but didn’t have that “journey”!!
“You were my king of the castle! @jordannorth1 #ImACelebrity.”
“#ImACelebrity Jordan was robbed that victory! He had such an arc from throwing up on a cliff to now,” tweeted a fifth.
However, other fans were quick to congratulate the first-ever winner of a UK-based series – even if they had Jordan as their favourite.
While the verdict may have left I’m A Celeb fans divided, Radio 1 DJ was delighted to see his fellow campmate crowned the winner.
“I couldn’t have lost or been runner-up to anyone better,” Jordan told Ant and Dec after they announced the results.
“(She) is the kindest and most genuine person I’ve ever met. Congratulations.”
Gobsmacked by the result herself, Giovanna thanked viewers at home for putting their support behind her.
