Jungle queen Toff’s just chuffed she can pay her rent
I’M A Celebrity’s Georgia Toffolo is particularly pleased about her win and any money it might bring her way as she revealed, ‘I haven’t paid my rent!’
The Made In Chelsea star has been projected to pocket huge sums from endorsement deals and TV shows off the back of her jungle stint.
‘I’m so overwhelmed. I don’t really know what to say about [winning],’ she told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.
When the Good Morning Britain hosts asked about reports she could rake in £5million, she replied: ‘It’s so funny — when I came out, the first thing I said to my mum was, “Mum, I haven’t paid my rent”, so that’s a lovely thing.’
‘Wow, I don’t think I’ll be having that payday. It would be highly welcome. I doubt it, though.’
And Toff wasn’t shy of spilling the beans about her next move either.
‘I want to do what you guys do,’ she told Piers and Susanna. ‘I want to try it. Who knows?’
At which, Piers joked: ‘You know, Toff, we could have a vacancy on this desk, absolutely no problem at all. I always like to rejuvenate the casting on these programmes!’
Not to be outdone, Susanna clapped back: ‘Yes, you can come and sit next to me any morning you like!’
Toff told the ITV show she was feeling ‘completely and utterly overwhelmed’ by her win and ‘taking every minute as it comes’.
‘This morning I was swinging from my hammock, happy as Larry,’ she added. ‘Now I’m sat at the Versace (hotel) with a crown on my head.’
Toff also revealed that spending time with former MEP Stanley Johnson had opened her eyes to working for ‘worthy causes’.
‘You have so much time to think because there are no distractions,’ she explained of her time in the jungle.
‘Actually having Stanley in there has really made me think about things. We were talking about causes that I’d never even considered, environmental conservation, GM…’
She added: ‘There are so many worthy causes that I would love to get involved with. I need to do a little bit of research.’
