‘I’m over the moon!’ Mel Sykes chuffed at being the only woman in I’m A Celeb final
Melanie Sykes is 'over the moon' to have made it to the final
The mother-of-two admitted that she was “over the moon” at being the only female left in camp following Edwina Currie’s departure yesterday.
In a new clip released by ITV, Melanie can be seen speaking in the Bush Telegraph as she contemplates possibly being crowned queen of the jungle.
“I’m over the moon that I’m being voted for to stay in,” she said.
“It’s amazing, I’m the only girl left and I just think that’s an achievement because the boys always get really far in it, so I’m over the moon!”
Carl 'Foggy' Fogarty said being in the final is 'absolutely unbelievable'

Reality TV star Jake Quickenden was also in shock at being in the final three.
“I can’t believe it,” he said. “I can’t actually believe what is going on right now. I lasted longer in here than I did on X Factor anyway!”
Carl ‘Foggy’ Fogarty was also surprised at how far he’d come in the competition and expressed his delight in the Bush Telegraph too.
“Me? In the final? I feel like it’s a dream to be honest and I’ll wake up in a minute and be back in Blackburn so I don’t know what to say, it’s just absolutely unbelievable,” he told the camera.

The news began to sink in after hosts Ant and Dec revealed on last night’s show that Edwina was the latest contestant to have been voted out.
The 68-year-old wasn’t bothered at all about not making it to the final and had a huge grin on her face as she exited the jungle.
She told Ant and Dec: “It feels bloody marvellous. But did you see I had my fingers crossed.
“I thought it would be horrible. Yet they were a terrific bunch of people. A privilege and a pleasure to know them.”
