Scarlett Moffatt Praises 'I'm A Celebrity' Winner Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo

This year's series of I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here has been an emotional ride with a deserved winner at the end of it in Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo.


The Made In Chelsea star was crowned Queen of the Jungle last night, pipping Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas to the prize, and the coronation proved to be a bit too much for last year's winner, Scarlett Moffatt.

As she handed Toff the I'm A Celeb crown and sceptre, the Extra Camp host turned out to have nothing but praise for her successor as she marked the first time that three women in a row have won the series.

"Honestly, I really hope that this crown brings you as much luck and happiness as it's brought me, I honestly do," Moffatt told a speechless Toff. "Well done."

She added: "Oh my god, I feel like crying for you, because it's girls like you that make me so proud to be a young woman. You did it for all of us girls in there - proper girl power."

Whether it was impressing the viewers or diving into Bushtucker Trials to show the boys how it's done, 23-year-old Toff is proving to be a very popular winner of this year's series.

She showed no fear in chomping down numerous bug-filled meals or coming into close contact with creeps - in contrast with some of her fellow contestants.

Before the result was announced, Toff had been an overwhelming favourite with bookmakers to win, attracting the best odds in the ITV show's 15-year history.

Bookmakers William Hill had her down to win at a huge 1/10, while Iain Lee's odds were 9/1 and Jamie was at 12/1.

Toff has also proved a snip for the show's producers, accepting a wage packet of just £13,000 for her appearance on the show compared to the £300,000 forked out to attract boxer Amir Khan, according to reports.

Her class character made her the polar opposite of bully boys like Jamie, Dennis Wise and Amir. The trio received severe criticism from viewers for their behaviour towards Iain, who finished in third place.

Some fans felt that Jamie, Dennis and Amir had been bullying Iain by telling him he couldn't do a Bushtucker Trial because he'd been scared to do trials in the past.

Toff has been a breath of fresh air for prime-time telly. Hopefully we'll be seeing a lot more of her on our screens.
