The grand final of I’m a Celebrity... South Africa is upon us.

After three weeks of camping and challenges, the all-stars spinoff will crown its first-ever “I’m a Celebrity Legend” tonight (12 May).

Singer Myleene Klass, athlete Fatima Whitbread, dancer Jordan Banjo and cricketer Phil Tufnell make up the final four, but all their former campmates are being brought back for the closing episode to carry out the horrible task of booting one of them out.

Other celebrities to appear in this series, which is made up of stars from across the flagship show’s history, have included Carol Vorderman, Shaun Ryder and Amir Khan.

Ant and Dec have been back on presenting duties.

There has been no public vote throughout this series, because it is not filmed live.

In tonight’s final, there will be two trials that will ultimately decide who will be named the first-ever “Legend”.

Follow updates on the final below...

The first-ever ‘I’m a Celeb legend’ is... Myleene Klass!!

She’s done it folks!! After vomiting at the end of the trial, Klass has come out on top.

The singer, 45, who originally appeared in the sixth season in her mid-twenties, said: “I feel so happy. Honestly, it was really hard to come away from your family this time around… this time, I’m a mum, but with that you get a superpower, because you know that you’ve got three little sets of eyes watching you.”

Myleene is just all in, folks. She’s going for all 40 spoonfuls of rotten something-or-other.

Every spoon looks like a gastronomic marathon. No one has any idea how (or why) she’s doing this.

Another one! Jordan won the impala showdown and now both stars have said they can finish three pig snouts. Who will be fastest? They’re big snouts...

Final trial revealed

This is it! The last trial is called “All You Can Stomach”. They must write down the number of disgusting items they think they can eat in five minutes. If they manage it, they’ll win a point. If they fail, their opponent will win a point.

We’ve got nine rounds of this!!
