After three weeks of camping out in the Australian jungle, the Irish pop star was voted the champion of the survival series, beating out British fashion guru David Emanuel, who took the runner-up spot.
Egan, who proclaimed that the experience was "the best three weeks of (his) life", was left stunned upon hearing he had won the competition, gushing, "The whole thing has been an amazing experience... It's way beyond my expectations. I never expected to be here in the final. I'm absolutely gobsmacked."
British soap actress Lucy Pargeter finished in third place, while other competitors included Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro, Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington and Miss Universe Great Britain Amy Willerton.
