I’m A Celebrity winner: Show broke tradition as Giovanna Fletcher crowned Queen of the Castle

Vernon Kay gave Giovanna her crown last night

I’m A Celebrity broke tradition for the first time in years as Giovanna Fletcher was crowned the 2020 winner.

Mum-of-three Giovanna became Queen of the Castle on Friday night as Vernon Kay and Jordan North came in third and second place.

However, the show broke a tradition as Vernon presented Giovanna with her crown instead of the show’s previous winner.

Last year’s winner Jacqueline Jossa wasn’t able to crown Giovanna due to the coronavirus pandemic.
