Strictly Come Dancing's Zara McDermott has shared her reaction to boyfriend Sam Thompson winning I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

Posting her reaction on Instagram, the reality star and documentary-maker shared a video of herself watching the final at home with friends and family – which included the moment when Sam was announced as the 2023 series winner.

"And the new King of the Jungle is... Sam," Ant McPartlin can be heard announcing on the TV, before everyone in the room jumps out of their seats, cheering. Overcome with joy, Zara can be seen jumping and squealing in excitement, before hugging Sam's mother Karen Thompson.

Sam's sister, former Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson, can also be seen celebrating in the clip alongside her son Leo-Hunter.

"The moment we all found out… OUR KING OF THE JUNGLE!!!!!!!" she captioned the video.

Zara also shared a number of Instagram Stories detailing her 'Sam-themed' party with followers earlier in the night, which included images of Sam's face on party hats and bunting.

"We have all Sam-themed everything, including hats," she told the camera, showing off her hat and adding: "I'm so excited."

Sam Thompson was crowned King of the Jungle during last night's (December 10) finale, which saw the reality star beat pro boxer Tony Bellew and former politician Nigel Farage to first place.
