Georgia Toffolo had to remind Holly Willoughby of that old adage ‘Don’t believe everything you read in the papers’, as she was interviewed on today’s This Morning.
Appearing via video link from Australia, the I’m A Celebrity winner, 23, was discussing her future career options with Holly and fellow presenter Phillip Schofield.
Suddenly, Holly made a statement about Toff’s qualifications that left the Made In Chelsea star looking a little weary.
And she found herself having to interrupt the interview to correct the blunder, leaving Holly red-faced.
Holly said: “So you’ve got a law degree, and looking at the papers today they’ve speculated that you could earn £5million…”
At that point, Toff interjected: “No! This has been reported in the press. I started it and then I dropped out.
“And then I started another one, and then I dropped out again.
“I mean, it’s very flattering if people think I have. I did freshers’ week twice – that’s the only degree I have!”
An embarrassed-looking Holly said: “Well, that’s going to make this decision a bit easier, then, because I was going to say: ‘What are you going to do?’ Because apparently, there’s a bidding war between several different [TV] channels.
“Law degree or that? So clearly, TV it is then!”
Wait a minute, though, Holly, because there could be another option for the I’m A Celebrity winner.
She told This Morning: “I’ve always had an interest in politics – I’ve kept that up over the years.”
And her Made In Chelsea mate Emily Blackwell told the Mirror: “It would be great if she got her own show, maybe to do with politics. She’d be great at presenting.
“I think she’d be quite good as Prime Minister. She could be the first person to leave the jungle and go on to be PM.”
Well, she’s been in the jungle – how difficult can the House of Commons be?
