Ten’s disappointing 2018 series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! has finished with a bit of a whimper, pulling its worst ever ratings for a finale.

Last night’s episode, that saw comic Fiona O’Loughlin crowned the jungle winner, was watched by 684,000 viewers, making it the worst-watched finale in the show’s four-year history. The corresponding episode in 2017 pulled 989,000.

However, most of last night’s social media attention surrounded second-place getter, the singer Shannon Noll.

Noll, of course, found national fame on his first reality TV outing 15 years ago when he placed second to Guy Sebastian in Ten’s Australian Idol. On the announcement that Noll has again placed second, social media quickly lit-up with some gentle taunting. Check out some of it below:
