Stuart Manning admitted he was "disappointed" not to be in the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' final.

The former 'Hollyoaks' star was evicted from the Australian jungle last night (02.12.09), but said he was trying to look on the bright side.

He said: "I'm a bit disappointed not to be in the last three. But I get to see my family, so it's all good."

When hosts Ant and Dec asked the actor who he wants to win this year's contest, he tipped his "best friend" Gino D'Acampo.

He said: "I think he's an amazing guy. He's just superb."

Stuart brushed off hosts Ant and Dec's questions about whether he was attracted to fellow evictee Sabrina Washington.

He said: "She's a lovely girl. I'm going to speak to everyone when they come out. They are all my friends and we have had a great time in there."

Stuart's departure leaves Gino, snooker star Jimmy White - who was up for eviction against Stuart after the pair polled the lowest number of viewer votes - 'How Clean Is Your House?' presenter Kim Woodburn and interior designer Justin Ryan vying to be crowned this year's jungle king or queen.

Another star will be evicted tonight (03.12.09) ahead of tomorrow's (04.12.09) final.
