I’m A Celebrity: How Jacqueline Jossa almost lost ITV series to Andy Whyment revealed 1

The voting figures for this year’s final have been released and fans were torn between choosing a Queen or King of the Jungle.

EastEnders actress Jacqueline narrowly beat Andy with a margin of just 1.2 percent.

Jacqueline was backed by 50.61 percent of the vote while Andy had a 49.39 percent share.

More than 11 million people voted for their jungle champion during Sunday’s final.

Andy was tipped to win at 2-7 and Roman was racked as an outside at 10-1.

“We thought the final had an air of inevitability about it and fully expected Andrew to be crowned King of the Jungle,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

“Punters clearly knew more than us though and Jacqueline’s win saw hundreds of Coral customers celebrating a nice early Christmas bonus. 

“We never really thought she had a chance and that’s why her odds remained so good, even in the latter stages of the series, and punters really cashed in.

“It just goes to show that it’s never over until it’s over and you can’t underestimate the power of the public vote.”

Last year’s final was very different with Harry Redknapp beating Emily Atack with 70 percent of the vote.

When the EastEnders star was announced as the winner, fans flocked to social media to share their thoughts on the result.

Some viewers weren’t pleased with the result as one wrote: “You’re having a laugh mate what a disappointment #ImACeleb.”
