Had Our Phil

”IT’S been wicked, it’s been good, it’s been emotional. It was hard at times with the old grub and challenges but I’ve had a great time. It didn’t help not getting much kip and yet the group rallies around and brings you back together.’

‘It’s been emotional’

In his own regal way, the new king of the I’m A Celebrity jungle told us what it was to be the winner of a reality TV show.

And he pressed on: ‘I just can’t believe it. It’s unbelievable. I turned up for a bit of a kip for two weeks! I’m pleased I’ve won, but everyone’s done really well. I have no regrets, I went in there happy and I came out happy. Happy days!’

Phil is now – without doubt – the most famous English cricketer, and, most likely, the most widely known English cricketer of all time.

Very soon he’ll be taking the Ian Botham contracts for advertising breakfast cereals, and then plugging lager, ants, Australia and, well, whatever he fancies.

Being the first sportsman to win a reality TV show carries much kudos. Tuffers is the TV sports personality of the year – the only one with a genuine personality.
