GEORGIA Toffolo was the bookies favourite, the public’s favourite and even Ant and Dec’s favourite to bag the I’m A Celeb title last night, as the Geordie duo confessed the Made in Chelsea beauty was their top campmate all along.
The reality TV star was crowned Jungle Queen in a thrilling finale which saw the blonde beat DJ Iain Lee and second-placed Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas.

Ant and Dec correctly guessed that Georgia Toffolo would win I'm A Celebrity before the show started
Ant and Dec, who have fronted the critter-filled antics Down Under since the hit series began, revealed Toff was their top choice in a game on spin off show Extra Camp.
Last year’s winner Scarlett Moffatt said: “Let’s see if any of us got it right,” before pointing to Dec and saying: “Obviously you got it right last year,” after he tipped the ex Gogglebox star as champion.
Comedian Joel Dommett, who reached last year’s final, plumped for Boris Johnson’s bumbling dad to be winner this year, while Scarlett flashed her card and said: “Well, I wanted a girl to win, and I thought it might have been a northern girl, so I went for Jennie (McAlpine).”
Ant then pitched in and said: “I also wanted a girl to win,” before showing his card with Toff’s name and a smiley face underneath.
Dec squealed: “Two out of two,” as he held his card stating Toff to the camera, before former victor Joe Swash looked slightly embarrassed as he revealed he backed boxer Amir Khan, who went out earlier in the weekend.
Yesterday, we reported how fans rejoiced as Georgia, 23, was named the Queen of the jungle after nine million people cast their votes.
There was uproar at the start of the show, with fans furious after Iain Lee was voted out before Jamie Lomas.
The former Hollyoaks star was gracious in defeat and told Ant and Dec Toff deserved to win the show more than anyone.
Reality babe Toff was initially speechless when the Geordie duo announced she had won.
As the news started to sink in, she finally told them: “I don’t know what to say. Obviously, I didn’t think anyone would like me, never mind… sorry, I’m really taken aback.
“Thank you so much, I don’t know what to say, I’m really shocked! Sorry! Is this real?”
Toff’s flower crown was handed over to her by last year’s winner Scarlett Moffatt, who struggled to hold in her tears.
Scarlett said: “I feel like crying for you. It’s girls like you that make me feel so proud to be a young woman. You did it for all of us girls in there, proper girl power.”
Speaking on Extra Camp, Toff said her favourite part of the whole experience was, “going down and getting water with Stanley,” because of the “amazing chats” they had.
