Bookies’ favorite and self-confessed superfan Sam, 31, has become a household name thanks to his success in the ITV series.

The Made in Chelsea toff won the nation over with his positive attitude – beating Nigel, 59, and runner-up Tony Bellew, 41, to the coveted crown.

A source said: “Sam will easily make a million in the next year thanks to the jungle.

“Calls have already started coming in about opportunities for Sam — including his TV series.

“There were also a number of big money deals that were thrown his way.

“He’s always been popular with younger people thanks to his reality TV past, but now he’s known and loved by millions.

“Winning I’m A Celebrity can do wonders for careers, and Sam is certainly no exception.”

Sam was backed as a winner by all the contestants who left the camp before him, including EastEnder Danielle Harold, jockey Frankie Dettori and JLS pop star Marvin Humes — who is counting on the band to bring Sam on tour.

The new king of the jungle was welcomed on the bridge of the show by his best friend Pete Wicks, who replaced Sam’s girlfriend Zara McDermott (26).

The Strictly Zara star was unable to fly to Australia due to work commitments, but last night she celebrated her win and told fans she was proud.

Sam, who rose to fame on Made in Chelsea in 2013, has made no secret of how much he loves the show – and its hosts Anta and Dec.

During his time at camp, he took part in a number of Bushtucker trials – and last night he cracked the latest, where he had to chew on a pig’s vagina, a fish’s eye and a scorpion.

The star also used his time in the jungle to open up about his ADHD diagnosis last year – and fans praised him for his honesty when he admitted he struggled at school.

He said: “If I had known as a child, not much would have changed, but it probably changes how you feel about yourself.

“I remember crying into my textbook because I couldn’t understand the words.”

He added: “I am in no way ashamed of having ADHD.

“But I know I would have felt better at school if I had been diagnosed at a younger age.”

Sam’s popularity at the camp led to him developing a close relationship with boxer Tony.

The pair opened with comedy, with Sam annoying Tony after he broke the wind next to him and slapped a mosquito off his face.

But they became firm friends and Sam revealed he would be spending more time with the former champion after the show.

Third-placed Nigel also won over his campmates despite early clashes with First Dates’ Fred Sirieix and YouTuber Nella Rose.

Insiders said he is now ready to capitalize on his popularity by returning to politics.

A source said: “Nigel has shown how popular he is with the British public – and he will take advantage of that.

“He used the show to reveal another side of himself and it obviously worked, because the public voted for him in thousands.

“Nigel has gained a lot of support from people who may not have liked him before – and that’s perfect for his political comeback, which is likely to be early next year.”

During his time at the camp, Nigel took part in a series of Bushtucker Trials, drinking mixed goat testicles, and also ate penis pizza with Nella at the Jungle Pizzeria.

The former head of Ukip was greeted last night after the concert by his daughter Izzy (18) and his girlfriend Laure Ferrari.

Last night, Nigel said of his exit after 23 days: “I went into it with a positive attitude and loved it.”

When Ant and Dec asked him why he signed up after being repeatedly asked, Nigel said: “I’ll be 60 next birthday and you’ll get to the age where you can’t do it anymore.

“He is very physical. I threw myself into everything. I didn’t give you anything.

“Not everyone likes the things I stand for, but we all have the right to an opinion. But I am a human being.

“If you asked me if I would do it again, I probably would.”

Asked about his conflicts in the camp, Nigel said: “Obviously there were people there who had very different views on Brexit.

“I think I managed to convince them that the right to a different opinion should be respected.

“There is no heavy rainfall.

“The public put me in third place, I couldn’t be more delighted.”

He added: “I’ve learned that I can control fear in a way I didn’t know I could.”

Last night, the stars headed to the final party an hour away from the camp.
