Daddy's girl Stacey Solomon returns to British shores after being crowned Queen of the Jungle... looking rather orange

Daddy! Stacey Solomon leaps into her father David's arms as she arrived back into the UK from Australia this morning

Having spent three weeks sleeping rough, eating bugs and putting up with her camp mates' antics, it's hardly surprising that Stacey Solomon was so happy to be back home.

And she proved that she is every inch a Daddy's girl as she ran into her father David's arms upon landing in London this morning.

But the 21-year-old I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! winner, who was crowed Queen of the Jungle on Saturday night, was so disappointed by the rainy weather in Australia, that she appeared to have resorted to fake tan to get a healthy glow.

However, the result was that the former X Factor winner looked rather orange as she greeted her father, stepsister and her sister Jemma at the airport.

Stacey flew back from Australia's Gold Coast with her two-year-old son Zach, her mother Fiona and boyfriend Aaron Barnham, who had travelled with her Down Under to be there to greet her when she left the jungle.

The singer also looked slimmer than ever, after losing half a stone during her time in the jungle.

But while she said she enjoyed her time in the jungle, she admits she wouldn't take on the task again.

She told new! magazine: 'I would never do it again. But I would recommend it. I’ve never lived anywhere as beautiful as that place.'

And Stacey's family all looked delighted to see their missing member as they posed for pictures in the airport before they drove off home to Dagenham in their native Essex.

She was closely followed out of the airport by her jungle camp mates Britt Ekland - who was reunited with her pet Chihuahua Tequila, Sheryl Gascoigne and Linford Christie and runner-up Shaun Ryder.

Stacey shot to fame last year when she came third on the X Factor behind Olly Murs and winner Joe McElderry.

On Saturday she was crowned queen of the jungle after beating Shaun Ryder in this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The single mother, known as the 'diva from Dagenham', had been the bookies favourite to win since the 10th series began on November 14.

The 21-year-old broke down in tears and hugged former Happy Mondays singer Shaun, 48, when she was named winner of this year's show.
