Fogarty Tops the Podium of UK’s I’m a Celebrity TV ShowCarl Fogarty on I’m a Celebrity

With four world titles and 59 race victories, Carl “Foggy” Fogarty is the most successful World Superbike rider of all time.

Fogarty – known for his top performances aboard Ducati machinery – is obviously no stranger to the podium. But it’s been 15 years since he stood on top of a podium – until Sunday.

This podium had nothing to do with laps on a race track, though. Instead, the 49-year-old of Lancashire, England, was crowned “king of the jungle” in the UK’s “I’m A Celebrity” TV show.

“It’s been 15 years since I stood on top of a podium, I can’t believe it. It’s a great feeling to be voted to win by the public,” Fogarty says.

Following three weeks of competition with 11 other celebrities in the Australian jungle, Fogarty beat runner-up Jake Quickenden (The X-Factor reality TV star) and third-place finisher Melanie Sykes (English TV star and model).

The show presents many different eating challenges (food found in the jungle), and Fogarty won the maximum number of food stars available to him. This made Fogarty one of the strongest contestants since the show began in 2002.

This was also a great win for World Superbike fans: “Receiving social media support from SBK fans around the world as well as reigning WSBK champion Sylvain Guintoli, Foggy gained thousands of votes from new fans as he gave viewers a glimpse of the legend who always raced to win, and as he did so put World Superbike racing in the mainstream spotlight once again,” World SBK reports.
