Fiona O’Loughlin says her secret to winning I’m A Celeb was taking lots of naps basically.

We should all aspire to be more like Fiona O’Loughlin. The newly crowned queen of the jungle says she won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! by basically doing nothing. Yep, nothing.

In an interview with The Project on Tuesday night, Fiona, 54, said her victory all came down to the fact she was happy doing squat while the rest of the celebs were busy running around exhausting themselves and creating drama.

“Most people, the boredom did their head in. I loved the boredom, and I love my naps,” she laughed.

So, basically, Fiona treated the jungle like her own damn spa and resort, and was happy spending her days lying in a hammock under the palm trees. Sounds like she was living the dream.


“I’m a very lazy person,” she added.

Let this be an important life lesson for us all – the less you do, the more you get out of life.

But even though she emerged victorious, Fiona said she feels bad about beating out Shannon Noll.

"There was nothing sweet at all about knocking Shannon out of the race. He had been an utter gentleman to me," she said.

"In the last few weeks of the race, the place was basically wall-to-wall gentlemen."

And now that she's out, Fiona says she can't wait to become a first-time grandmother once her daughter, Tess, gives birth.

"I'm so ready for it. I want to be the most batsh*t mad grandmother I can be and just enjoy the whole lot of it," she said.

When she's not napping, we presume.
