McFly boy wins I’m A Celeb

Dougie Poynter

Well, we managed to get through the whole of this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’ farce without giving it a mention in CMU, but now McFly’s Dougie Poynter has only gone and won the ITV mediocrity fest, beating Mark Wright of pretend reality show ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ in the final vote. So I guess that makes this pop news.

After being declared overall winner of the show, the McFly bassist said: “I’m lost for words… it’s been the best couple of weeks of my life, I wish everyone in the world could experience that”. Poynter’s bandmate Tom Fletcher was then on hand to welcome the winner out of the fake jungle, and seemed pleased to see him, despite him just saying that ten days with a bunch of y-list and nearly-dead former d-list celebs was more fulfilling than anything he’d ever experienced with McFly.

Fletcher, of course, is now the only member of McFly to have not done a reality TV show, Danny Jones having appeared on ‘Popstar To Operastar’ and Harry Judd currently competing in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. Though given it’s mainly reality TV keeping these guys in the public eye, presumably Fletcher’s time will come.
