He survived two weeks of maggots, snake-handling and celeb tantrums to win the competition, beating runner-up Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.

Fact File
Celeb charities
Tara PT: The Chemical Dependency Centre
Christine Hamilton: The Children's Wish Foundation
Nigel Benn: NSPCC
Nell McAndrew: Cancer Research UK
Uri Geller: Children With Aids
Rhona Cameron: The Psoriasis Association
Darren Day: Noah's Ark Appeal

Tony - who was Radio 1's first DJ 35 years ago - was delighted to win and was very surprised when hosts Ant and Dec announced the result of the public vote.

He won 55% of the 1.5 million votes.

During his time in the jungle, Tony developed a fascination with logs. He created a huge stock-pile of wood and classified them according to their day or night burning ability.

But he said his log-collecting kept him calm when the bickering amongst other unhappy campers got a bit much for him.

He's raised thousands of pounds during the competition - for chaaarity, of course! Each of the celebs were raising money for their fave causes.

Tony's was the National Autistic Society.

The eight celebs will now spend some time chilling before flying back to the "real" world.
