Georgia Valerie "Toff" Toffolo[1] (born 23 October 1994)[2] is an English television and media personality. She is best known for appearing on E4 reality television series Made in Chelsea from 2014 and winning the seventeenth series of ITV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2017.

Personal life[edit]

Toffolo was born in Torquay[3] to Gary Bennett[4] and Nicola Toffolo.[5] Raised in London and Devon, she attended Stoodley Knowle Independent School for Girls, Torquay Grammar School for Girls, The Maynard School, and Blundell's School.[6] She then started an LLB law degree at the University of Westminster, with an ambition to work in commercial law, but then dropped out (several newspapers have, however, reported that she managed to "complete" a law degree).[7][8] She then worked in a charity shop, an old people's home, a family-run firm of solicitors in Devon, and then law firm Family Law in Partnership in London.[2]

Toffolo supports fox hunting and has been a member of the Conservative Party since she was in secondary school.[9] Because of her Conservative politics, she has been dubbed "Boris [Johnson] in a bikini".[10] When asked by The Sunday Times which politicians she admires, she replied "The standard: Zac Goldsmith, Jacob Rees-Mogg. I fancy them all. Jacob's a sex god."[10]

Career[edit]

From its seventh series in 2014, Toffolo has appeared on reality television show Made in Chelsea. In September 2017 she appeared in the third series of Celebs Go Dating.[11]

In November 2017, Toffolo was announced to be a contestant on the seventeenth series of ITV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!.[12] On 10 December, she won the series, beating Jamie Lomas and Iain Lee in the final.[13] On 20 December, she announced she was joining This Morning.[14]
