Vicky Pattison was last night crowned Queen of the Jungle on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! but some fans of third placed Ferne McCann are claiming it was a fix.
Ferne, who chowed down on a live spider, part of a bull's penis, and half a lamb's brain in the final, came third with George Shelley finishing second.
However, some fans of the TOWIE claim they were prevented from voting for their favourite star to win.
One Twitter user said, "Fix!! I've tried all night to vote for Ferne & got a dead number!! #ImACeleb gutted Ferne should of won!!!!"

However, an ITV spokesman told the Mirror that the vote was frozen for a time and this was clearly relayed to viewers.
"The vote was frozen at around 9.45pm so Ant & Dec could announce who had come third place. Ant & Dec clearly explained when the vote was frozen and it was written on screen," they said.
Woaaah! Dec just said well done on third place Vicky! ...to Ferne....FIX!!!! #ImACeleb— S t a c e y... (@Stace_S______) December 6, 2015
"The vote was frozen after viewers saw Vicky, Ferne and George complete their Bushtucker Trial. After third place was announced, the vote was re-opened so viewers could vote for their winner."
Fans were also suspicious when Dec said well done to Ferne on third place, but accidentally called her Vicky.
