CHEF Gino D'Acampo has been crowned king of the jungle after winning the hit reality TV show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!

The popular celebrity chef, who owns Radlett-based food supply business Bontà Italia, won the most votes in Friday night's showdown.

During the three weeks he spent in the Australian jungle, the Italian chef has endured bush-tucker trials, walked the tightrope and cooked for his fellow contestants.

TV cleaner Kim Woodburn came second in the competition and snooker ace Jimmy White was placed third.

But shortly after winning the jungle crown, Gino, 33, was allegedly told he faced criminal charges along with jungle pal Stuart Manning for killing a rat for food during the show.

The incident happened while the campmates were in 'exile' where they were forced to survive on meagre rations of rice and beans.

The New South Wales RSPCA is reportedly pressing animal cruelty charges against the pair and they are thought to have been summoned to attend court in February.
