Queen of the Jungle Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo has revealed the incredible surprise she got after leaving the jungle.
The Made In Chelsea star, 23, was greeted by her mother Nicola on Sunday night after being named the winner of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Appearing on This Morning via video link on Monday, the reality star revealed that after the cameras stopped rolling there was just one thing she wanted to do: contact her beloved grandparents.
She’d spoken about her grandparents in camp and had asked her mum about their well-being when Nicola dropped by camp for a surprise visit over the weekend.
So it’s only natural Toff was eager to get on the blower with her nan and granddad.
But talking to Holly and Phil, she revealed that didn’t happen… because her grandparents had FLOWN the whole way to Australia to surprise her in person!
Toff explained: “I kept saying, ‘I need to call granny and granddad’. But everyone was like, ‘There’s no signal’. I was ravenous so said, let’s just go to the canteen – and my nanny and granddad were standing there in the canteen!
“They had flown over! It was the most amazing moment. I just couldn’t believe it. It was just unreal.”
Toff said 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!”
While Toff may be stunned she won, plenty of This Morning viewers hailed her as a worthy winner.
