Former footballer Gazza, 55, successfully spent 180 hours in the dark and his fellow celebrities agreed he was the most deserving of the prize.
He said of his win: “People always question my mental strength but my success on this series proves that I am strong.
“I was nervous going in there but having got this far on the series made me the happiest man around. I’m so happy. It’s unbelievable. I’ve got my smile back. I’m a better person.”
Paul continued: “I got electrocuted and got shot with a cannonball in the bollocks. I f**king fell backwards. I thought I was 50 foot up in the air and I went through all that. So to come out the other side and to be smiling, is such an amazing achievement and to win it is like the most unbelievable feeling, it’s just fantastic.
“I’m really honoured to have won but in my eyes, all my fellow Scared of the Dark celebrities are winners. They all did really well and I really enjoyed spending those eight days getting to know them in the dark. We worked so well as a team.”
Ex-boxer Chris made the shock decision to walk early after struggling to get on with his fellow stars.
