And she’s Toff… I’m A Celebrity winner Georgia is ‘set to bank £5m’
GEORGIA ‘TOFF’ TOFFOLO was crowned queen of the jungle last night after soaring to victory in the I’m A Celebrity final.
The Made in Chelsea star pipped Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas to win the public vote, with radio host Iain Lee coming third.
The 23-year-old was almost lost for words at her victory, asking hosts Ant and Dec: ‘Is this real? I didn’t think anyone would like me. It’s really overwhelming.’
She looks set to be a winner in more ways than one after she was tipped to pocket £5million following her stint Down Under.
It comes after reports she banked just £13,000 for the ITV series.
Talent scout Barry Tomes said: ‘Her agents have played a blinder.
‘A lot would have turned down such a low fee but they obviously took it knowing her character.
‘It’s the right kind of programme for her. She will make more than £1million in a year. If they play the game she could earn up to £5million in the long-term.’
Bookmakers had given her the best odds of winning in the show’s 15-year history. Ladbrokes offered odds of 1/10 on Toff, with Lee at 12/1 and Lomas at 2/5.
The trio enjoyed a last slap-up supper after completing their final Bush tucker trials. Toff braved biting green ants, cockroaches and scorpions to win the starter of chicken wings.
Lee, 44, tackled delicacies such as turkey testicles and camel brain to land the main course of cheeseburgers. Lomas, 42, who hailed Toff as ‘a great champion’, had more than 40 snakes for company in a pit to seal their dessert of sticky toffee pudding.
