I’M A CELEBRITY 2019 has come to an end with Jacqueline Jossa crowned Queen of the Jungle ahead of Roman Kemp and Andy Whyment. But who finished in second place and took the runner-up spot?
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! 2019 has been one of the most memorable in the ITV show’s history thanks to its star-studded line-up and hilarious antics Down Under. This year’s series will also live long in the memory of EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa after she was crowned Queen of the Jungle. She was joined in the final by Roman Kemp and Andy Whyment with one of the two taking the runner-up spot and finishing second behind the soapstar.
Who finished second on I’m A Celebrity 2019?
This year’s jungle crown may have gone to Jacqueline but both Andy and Roman weren’t too far behind her.
As Ant and Dec read the results aloud, it was Coronation Street star Andy who was ultimately left as runner-up on I’m A Celebrity 2019.
Roman had left camp earlier in the episode to speak with Ant and Dec about his time in camp after finishing in third place.
One person who narrowly missed out on the final was Kate Garraway who was voted off in the show’s semi-final on Saturday (December 7).
Andy had had his ups and downs while in the Australian jungle.
And this was reflected when the Corrie star became overwhelmed with emotion during his exit interview.
The Corrie star reflected on his time and said: “(I’m) absolutely over the moon,
“I never thought I’d make the final never mind possibly be crowned King of the Jungle.”
He added: “(It was) surreal. You know how much of a fan I am of this show.
“It was a lot harder than I thought. When you watch it at home, you just see an hour, you don’t realise how much work goes into running the camp.”
Andy also spoke about his wife and children to Ant and Dec having spent almost three weeks away from them.
The runner-up wiped away tears as he said: “I’ve missed them so much.”
Andy was incredibly grateful for the votes from I’m A Celeb viewers after spending his career in the spotlight as “Kirk”.
He said: “That’s what means so much, I’ve done like Dancing on Ice and things like that,
“But this is 24 hours a day after playing a character for so long!
“You’ll get people say there’s Andy, it feels amazing. People get behind Andy Whyment other than Kirk! It’s getting me emotional.”
Andy saw off 10 other campmates to secure the runner-up spot.
Adele Roberts was the first campmate eliminated, followed the next day by Andrew Maxwell.
Late arrival Cliff Parisi was next, closely followed by James Haskell and Ian Wright.
X Factor’s Myles was next voted out before a double elimination saw Caitlyn Jenner and Nadine Coyle sent packing.
Kate Garraway then left in the semi-final leaving Jacqueline, Roman and Andy as the final three.
