Brexiteers are on their best behaviour at Tory fundraiser

Made in Chelsea star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo stole the show as she brushed shoulders with Tory MPs at the Conservatives’ glamorous black and white ball.

Wearing a flowing gown, the queen of the I’m a Celebrity jungle was the belle of the ball as she arrived at the event with Stanley Johnson, father of Foreign Secretary Boris.

The pair, who have remained firm friends since their time Down Under, were even spotted getting ready together before the event with Toff sharing the clip on her Instagram story.

While Conservatives are preoccupied with in-fighting over Brexit, ministers were on their best behaviour as they joined party donors at London’s Natural History Museum.

The event is a prominent fixture in the Tory social calendar, with tables known to go for as much as £15,000, and the highlight is its auction, which involves an ‘experience’ event with ministers.

But following a week of showdown talks with Brussels and Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg vying for her job, Theresa May could be forgiven for not feeling in the party mood.

However, there were no signs of hostility as prominent Conservative ministers, supporters and reality TV stars, made their way into the opulent party.

The Foreign Secretary strode straight up the stairs into the grand building in Kensington, after getting out of a black BMW.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond and education minister Michael Gove were also spotted at the ball.

While Somerset MP Rees-Mogg arrived at the event on his own, as did Zac Goldsmith, MP for Richmond Park, while housing minister Sajid Javid beamed at cameras as he arrived with his wife Laura. 

The Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle Gary Goldsmith cut a lonely figure last night as he arrived.

The entrepreneur, 52, who was fined and handed a community service order for knocking his wife to the ground in October, appeared outside Natural History Museum for the fundraiser alone.

Mr Goldsmith looked rather glum as he stood outside the venue in a white double-breasted dinner jacket and black trousers.
