In a wholesome reaction to Sam Thompson winning I'm A Celeb, Jamie Lynn Spears said she felt so lucky to of made lifelong friends in the jungle and said she was desperate to be reunited with them.

Speaking on her Instagram story Jamie Lynn said Sam has "always" been her King of jungle, exclaiming: "Oh my gosh Sam, you're the King of the jungle. I'm so proud of you."

She went on to say that she was proud of all of her campmates and wished she was in Australia celebrating the series finale with them. "I'm so proud of all my campmates I wish I was there celebrating with y'all," the Zoey 101 actress said, "but we will make up for it in due time just send me that date please".

After she left the show at the start week two on medical grounds, Jamie jetted back to the US to be with her daughters, Maddie and Ivey, who she had missed dearly while in the I'm A Celeb jungle. This means she wasn't with the rest of the camp when the show ended but she's now eager to be with them again.

She went on: "I'm so lucky to of made lifelong friends out of this whole experience and Sam you have always been my King of the jungle, congratulations."

ITV have not announced when they'll air the reunion show of this year's I'm A Celeb but it's likely to be in the coming week.

While on the show, Jamie and Sam had a very tight bond. The King of the jungle was always there to reassure Jamie and try and lift her spirits during her low moments.

Unfortunately even Sam's positive vibes weren't enough to keep her in the jungle though and Jamie did leave before public voting began.

When she left the show she wrote on Instagram that she had an "incredibly special time" with some of the "absolute best humans" she had ever met and considers family now.

"THANK YALL for welcoming me into your living rooms night after night, and for supporting me through all the highs and lows. I am so grateful for this show, and all of the wonderful people apart of it! I will be taking some time to recover, and spend time with my family, but looking forward to sharing all about my journey on I'm A Celebrity with everyone! LOVE YALLLL"

Her message was warmly received with her fellow campmate Frankie Detorri commenting: "You were brilliant"
