Winning I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is a pretty amazing achievement.
But with the newfound success and fame comes that rather irritating yet unavoidable side-effect: people from your past popping up to sell stories.
And that’s just what former Queen of the Jungle Vicky Pattison has warned new Queen Toff.
Made In Chelsea’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo was the runaway winner of this year’s I’m A Celeb after winning over fans with her cheery disposition and can-do attitude.
But in a new interview with The Sun, former winner Vicky had words of advice for Toff.
“She will have amazing opportunities coming her way and also probably some exes crawling out of the woodwork,” said Vicky.
“But I would never underestimate that girl, she’s one tough cookie and she’s savvy as well.
“I don’t think for a single second she is going to have the wool pulled over her eyes.”
That being said, can you imagine anyone EVER having anything bad to say about Toff?!
Her ex-boyfriend, James Middleton, certainly hasn’t been talking about her while she’s been in the jungle; instead, he’s been nothing but supportive and not spoken to the press.
Toff said this week she and James split amicably, partly because he doesn’t want to be in the spotlight.
“He didn’t sign up to being spoken about on TV in front of 12 million people as he’s fiercely private,” she told The Sun.
“I’m very shocked and touched he supported me. I can’t imagine doing the same thing if it was the other way around.”
It emerged overnight that Toff was the runaway winner of I’m A Celeb 2017.
Voting stats released by ITV showed she picked up the Queen of the Jungle crown with 71.41% of the vote, compared to 18.53% for second-placed Jamie Lomas.
She also topped the public vote every single night so a very worthy winner!
Toff said during a video chat with This Morning on Monday that she still couldn’t quite believe she’d been named Queen of the Jungle.
“I was beyond [shocked],” she said.
“You have no idea what’s going on in the outside world. I couldn’t believe I was there in the first place.
“I was swinging on the hammock the first night we got there and thinking, ‘How on earth have you pulled this blinder, Georgia? How are you here?’
“I was among these immensely talented people and I didn’t really have any talent of note.
“Every day that went on, it got more surreal and I just loved it.”
Toff continued: “It just doesn’t seem real. I really thought I’d go in there and everyone would think, ‘blonde airhead’.
“Every vote that came in and it wasn’t me leaving, I thought something was going on. Even when I was voted into number 10, I thought it was because the public thought I was bossy! You have no indicator of what’s going on in the outside world.”
She added: “I loved every aspect of the jungle. I just loved the simplicity of it, having to do certain things in order to exist. Like getting water to boil so you aren’t dehydrated. And I didn’t even mind doing the dunny!”
And that attitude is why we all love her!
