"Honestly, I think I’m going to owe my grandma a lot of money for the 12 million votes she’s done.

“We were one big team, I don’t think there should be one winner, we couldn’t have got through it without all of us.”

Warner was up next to take on Bushtucker Bonanza during which he won main courses for himself and his campmates after managing to eat a selection of five questionable dishes, including a fermented duck egg and a camel’s testicle.

Hancock took on the final trial, Flood Your Face, which saw the MP for West Suffolk submerge his head in a tank of water, while wearing a snorkel, for five minutes, while critters including eels, yabbies and water spiders were added.

Each minute earned him a star and with desserts of his campmates choosing.

After earning all the available stars, the trio were rewarded with their tailor-made three course meals.
