'I'm A Celebrity' Winner Toff Faces Backlash Over Her Political Beliefs
Poor Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo. It was only a week or two ago that she captured the hearts of Britain by winning I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here.

Toff won viewers of the reality game show over by munching on bugs with aplomb and just being thoroughly nice, eventually being crowned Queen of the Jungle.
But now the Made in Chelsea star is facing a minor backlash from the public as a set of old videos resurfaced online, in which the reality star discusses her political views.
Last week, E4 tweeted out an old clip of Toff being set up on a date with someone with left-wing views on the show Celebs Go Dating, titled: "If @ToffTalks doesn't wind up as Prime Minister, there's no justice in the world".
Many young people loved Toff in I'm A Celeb, but after seeing the young Conservative Party member get outraged about being set up on the date with a 'bloody leftie', people have started to change their minds.
"I just don't understand how a young person of our age sits with the ideology of socialism. I think you want to go out and prosper, so how could you be left wing?," the 23-year-old said in the old clip. "I want everyone to work to be equal."
When her date pointed out that they had both been lucky enough to be privately educated, Toff said: "I actually went to grammar school for a month, but yeah. My parents have never given me anything on a plate."
"Except private education," her date replied.
The tweet, which has now been deleted, wasn't positively received on Twitter as people came to terms with Toff's political opinions.
Other people supported Toff:
Toff is known for being forthright in sharing her political opinions, identifying as centre-right. She has previously appeared on TV praising the Conservatives' scale back of welfare payments, calling for a flat rate of tax for higher earners, and even showing her support for proposals to bring back fox hunting.
"These foxes need to be culled anyway," Toff said in a meeting with Labour supporter Jack Monroe on the BBC prior to June's General Election. "They're out of control in the countryside. It's a great old British tradition."
It's hard to know what else people expected of Toff - she did make her name on Made in Chelsea after all. At least she's honest in sharing that she's not only Toff by name, but toff by nature.
