Mario Falcone Won £9,000 On Sister Giovanna Fletcher's I'm A Celeb Win
Fletcher beat Vernon Kay and Jordan North to become the ITV show's first ever Queen of the Castle in last night's finale.
Falcone obviously saw it all coming and placed a bet on her to win. Not just any bet, either. He chucked £1,000 on his sister to triumph, and now it's paid off.
Speaking before the big announcement in Wales, Falcone told The Sun: "I've got a cheeky bet on my sister - from day one - so I'll be pretty happy. I got nine to one odds and I put £1,000 on."
He added: "If she doesn't she owes me a grand."
Luckily for everyone, Giovanna won the 21 day long competition, and bagged nine grand for her brother in the process.
Naturally, he's glad.
Mario continued: "I think she's exactly what 2020 needed. The other guys are fantastic.
"Don't get me wrong, I think Jordan's amazing, Vernon's amazing, but the way Giovanna conducted herself, and the way that she is - I think she just deserves it."
Following on from her victory, Mario has also backed his sister to head on to make a success out of a presenting career.

She's already a successful blogger and podcaster, but her brother reckons that she'll be receiving offers from television companies in future.
He added: "She has so many avenues that she's already created that she has smashed, but I think the next doors that are going to open, surely are presenting.
"She has that warmth and she's very engaging.
"I think people will like that positivity. If she's the first face you see in the morning on your TV, you're gonna have a good day.
"So I'd be very surprised if someone doesn't snap her up for presenting."
Giovanna, who is married to Tom Fletcher from boyband McFly, currently runs a blog for mums and has hosted Kate Middleton on her podcast.
However, if ITV or BBC came along to offer a television presenting job, her head could be turned.
Speaking after her win, Giovanna said: "Soon as I'm home I'm just going to have loads of kisses and cuddles and immerse myself back into reality.
"And just normality, normal life. It feels weird because we don't know what's going on in the world."
