X Factor 2009 finalist triumphs in reality show
The new Queen Of The Jungle and runner-up Shaun Ryder completed their last trial, the Bush Spa, before the final votes were counted.
Both had to endure cockroaches and spiders in their hair. Shaun was nibbled by rats in the ‘sauna’ and Stacey, 21, had a biting ant ‘manicure’.
After the challenge, both were checked out to make sure they had no creepy crawlies in their ears.
All 13 finalists joined Ant and Dec in the jungle studio for the announcement of the winner.
‘I didn’t think I’d get to the final in a million years,’ said Shaun, 48, before watching his highlights.
‘I really, really want to go to the pub,’ he told fellow campmates during his stay but bravely endured being bitten by a snake until its fangs were prised off his hand.
‘I wanted to pull it out and smash it to bits,’ he admitted.
X Factor 2009 finalist Stacey made everyone laugh from the start when she complained that Aggro Santos’s kangaroo willy was smaller than hers.
But she swallowed the penis after a lot of chewing. She also dined on brain and other delicacies during the show.
‘I’ve had the time of my life,’ she said. ‘I was having such a good time. It was wicked. Thank you.’
Stacey walked across the firework-lined rope bridge after being crowned and was reunited with boyfriend Aaron Barham, 22.
