Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo was left lost for words after being named winner of I'm a Celebrity on Sunday night. The Made in Chelsea star beat her campmates Jamie Lomas and Iain Lee to be crowned Queen of the Jungle by Ant and Dec after more than nine million votes were cast.

The 23-year-old had been odds-on favourite to win the show, but admitted she was shocked to win. "I don't know what to say. I didn't think anyone would like me! Sorry I'm so taken aback. I'm so shocked," she said.

However, she received high praise from her fellow campmates, including runner-up Jamie. "She's amazing, she got stuck in, she's intelligent, and she really deserves it," the former Hollyoaks star said. Boris Johnson's father, Stanley Johnson, added: "I knew she was going to make it! I said right from the start, Toff's the one." Georgia had said that her favourite moment of the show was going to collect water with Stanley, who she struck up a close friendship with during the series.

She follows in the footsteps of previous reality TV winners, Vicky Pattison and Scarlett Moffatt, who won the last two series of the ITV show. Scarlett was on hand to present Toff with her crown, and told her: "It's girls like you that make me feel proud to be a young woman, I am so proud of you."

During her three weeks in the jungle, Toff won over viewers with her positive attitude and sense of humour. Now the 23-year-old is expected to see a huge boost to her career, with both ITV and E4 said to be interested in signing her up as a presenter or for a spin-off show. It was previously reported that Toff had been the lowest paid celebrity on the 2017 series, and was said to be receiving £13,000 for her appearance, in comparison to the £300,000 Amir Khan is believed to have earned for his stint on the reality show.
