I'm a Celebrity winner Georgia reveals first words to mum

I’m A Celebrity queen of the jungle Georgia Toffolo has welcomed the prospect of bumper pay cheques on the back of winning the show, saying “I haven’t paid my rent”.

The Made In Chelsea star could be in line to pocket huge sums from endorsement deals and TV shows.

The 23-year-old told Good Morning Britain: “I’m so overwhelmed. I don’t really know what to say about it (winning).”

Asked about reports that she could rake in £5 million, 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.”

She said she wanted to go into TV presenting, telling Good Morning Britain hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan: “I want to do what you guys do.

“I want to try it. Who knows?”

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!”

Susanna said: “Yes, you can come and sit next to me any morning you like!”

Georgia told the ITV show: “I’m completely and utterly overwhelmed. This morning I was swinging from my hammock, happy as Larry.

“Now I’m sat at the Versace (hotel) with a crown on my head. I’m taking every minute as it comes.”

The regular clubber said she had “missed the dancefloor” while on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! but her future could take a serious turn.

“You have so much time to think because there are no distractions,” she said of her time in the jungle.

“Actually having Stanley (Johnson) in there has really made me think about things,” she said of the former MEP.

“We were talking about causes that I’d never even considered, environmental conservation, GM…

“I am still letting everything sink in but I hope that I can use this to help and do good.

“There are so many worthy causes that I would love to get involved with. I need to do a little bit of research.”
