I'm A Celebrity's John Barrowman breaks down in tears as he finishes third place in jungle final

December 9, 2018

The actor became emotional as he was greeted by hosts Holly Willoughby and Dec Donnelly during the grand final tonight.

After being greeted by the presenters on his exit from the jungle, the 51-year-old star began tearing up.

He apologised to Holly and Dec as he tried to dry his eyes.

Speaking about his experience on the show, he said: "It was one of the top five things I've ever done in my career.

John continued: "It was harder than I ever thought."

The star also admitted: "I hit a wall at four days.

"It was one of the toughest things. It's the best experience but the toughest experience."

After Holly and Dec called out his name, John bid farewell to the remaining contestants Emily Atack and Harry Redknapp.

He was then seen walking across the bridge as he exited camp.

John kept fans entertained this year with his outrageous antics and won them over with his bravery as he returned to the camp despite injuring his ankle.

The entertainer took a nasty tumble and sprained his ankle as he walked down some steps in the dark.

He was rushed to hospital and kept out of the camp for a night while medics assessed his condition.

However, John was back the following morning and he declared that he chose to return as there was no chance of him quitting.

He told the other campmates: "I went to the hospital, it’s a bad sprain the whole side of my left ankle is swollen.

"There are things I can’t do, I can’t go down stairs but they’ve told me to walk on it as much as I can because the more I can walk on it the better it will get."

He was given a medical boot and a cane to walk with, and managed to continue taking on trials.

John even took part in the Celebrity Cyclone task, which was altered at the last minute to allow him to compete without putting his injured ankle at risk.

His close friendship with actress Emily Atack won over many viewers and the pair have now been tipped to land their own reality show.

This year's show has been a huge success as it brought in the highest ratings in five years, smashing the 12 million mark for the first time since 2013.

It marked the debut of presenter Holly Willoughby, 37, who has been standing in for Ant McPartlin, 43, while he takes some time out of the spotlight to focus on his personal problems.

Holly easily won over viewers and fans have loved the hilarious banter between her and co-host Declan Donnelly during the run.

She even took on one of the challenges as she joined the Extra Camp version of Celebrity Cyclone last night.

The This Morning star was seen screaming as she battled a water cannon, wind machines and bouncing balls to help the team to victory.
