I'm A Celebrity star Jamie Lynn Spears has shared a video message to former campmate Sam Thompson after he was crowned King of the Jungle on Sunday evening.

Spears left the jungle just one week in as she followed in the footsteps of Grace Dent who also quit the show on "medical grounds".

On Sunday, Thompson managed to beat Tony Bellew and Nigel Farage in the finale after three weeks of trials and sleepless nights in the jungle.

Spears didn't hang around in Australia to reunite with her former campmates for the finale as just a few days ago, she was mingling with her former castmates on Dancing with the Stars in the USA.

A number of fans picked up on Spears's absence from the finale but now she's spoken out.

Alongside a video of herself, she captioned: "CONGRATS TO THE KING @samthompsonuk. So proud of all my campmates - Miss y'all and can't wait to see everyone soon.
