From jungle girl to dancing queen: The evolution of Bindi Irwin

As Bindi wins Dancing With The Stars, we look back at her stunning evolution.

You know what they say: you can take the girl outta khaki, but you can't take khaki outta the girl.

Recently, Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin, has made a name for herself.

After campaigning for animal rights alongside her family since her childhood, the 17-year-old made a surprising career swap when she announced she would be appearing on the US Dancing With The Stars.

Since then, Bindi has gone from strength to strength, constantly knocking her weekly dances out of the park, and now, after weeks of hard work (and a few bumps along the way), the little girl from down under has found herself the winner!

As she celebrates her 18th birthday, we take a look back at her evolution, from khaki to sequins, from snakes to salsa and from jungle girl to dancing queen.
