After taking part in a gruelling challenge where he was covered in critters, the results were revealed to the famous dad.

Tess will no doubt be delighted to have Vernon home

"It was everything and more," Vernon said, when asked by Ant and Dec if the I'm a Celebrity experience was what he expected, adding that he would recommend the experience to everybody.

The dad-of-two also said he felt he'd made his wife Tess and two daughters proud, replying to Ant and Dec: "I do, I feel third place for me is more than my expectations." 

When pressed about who he wanted to win out of Giovanna and Jordan, Vernon said: "They both played real, significant individual roles... For the journey and for what he was and what he is now, Jordan."
