She was crowned queen of the jungle on I’m A Celebrity in 2017 and she ruled the red carpet at the National Television Awards last month.
And Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, 23, proved to be a woman of many talents on Thursday as she hosted a segment about keeping porky pigs as pets for her new presenting role on This Morning.
The enthusiastic host recently took on the role from showbiz gossip king Rylan Clark-Neal, who said he was taking a break from the show for the sake of his ‘mental health’.

She quoted former Prime Minister Winston Churchill as she embarked on her task, saying: ‘Dogs look up to you, cats look down on you, but pigs treat you like equals!’.
Shocked bystanders watched as Toff headed to London’s Ravenscourt Park with the hefty animals, as she and owner Antonia Pugh-Thomas charged through the streets.
Commenting on pedestrians reaction, she said: ‘I must say, when I was crossing that road, I have never seen so many faces, men in lorries, cars, thinking: “What on earth is going on here?”‘
Inside the park, joggers, cyclists and walkers stopped and stared as the tiny reality TV star was filmed gripping the leads of the 15-stone pigs.

‘I thought I was meant to be walking the pig, but the pig seems to be dragging me,’ said Toff as she yanked along the grass.

Antonia responded: ‘Generally yes, people are very positive about them…our neighbours have been so welcoming, they are very generous.’
The proud owner continued: ‘There is the odd person who gets distressed about them. There is one lady who feels that they lower the tone of the neighbourhood.’

‘When she said that to me, I thought it was because she thought I was so badly dressed, I didn’t know she was so offended by the pigs.’
Asking whether walking a pig suited her, Toff’s eyebrows rose as she discovered that when not mucking out her pigs, Antonia runs a top-of-the-range haute couture design outfitters in the reality star’s own ultra-chic Chelsea neighbourhood.
‘Obviously owning and walking pigs is completely at odds with the world of high fashion. What started this love affair?,’ asked the Made In Chelsea star.
Antonia admitted: ‘Yes, they are mutually exclusive, there’s no doubt about it, but I have loved pigs all of my life.’

‘They are friendly, they are funny, they are affectionate, they are boisterous, they’ll guard your property. They are just lovely creatures, why wouldn’t you love them?’
She confessed: ‘And yes, my work is a totally different experience. It’s ok as long as I don’t go in with mud on my clothes. Sometimes, you think you’ve brushed your hair and then you find a piece of straw coming out of it.’
‘Potential clients will Google me and then will say: “Are you the woman with the pigs?”‘
‘I can feel my mask slipping. I’m trying to be this very competent businesswoman and then I think: “Oh no! You know my secret! My secret is out”.’

Toff’s last encounter with pigs was Down Under, drinking blended snouts in one of I’m A Celebrity’s notorious Bushtucker trials, so she couldn’t help but ask if “bacon sarnies are off the menu” at home.
‘No absolutely not,’ replied Antonia. ‘We eat meat, we eat pork – absolutely.’
‘I do feel a little bit guilty sometimes when I am cooking bacon and the smell leaks out of the windows in the summer but no, we do eat a bacon sandwich, it’s definitely on the menu.’
Toff was clearly won over by Snout and Crackling, as she told Antonia: ‘I would imagine if I was your neighbour, it would be so fun, and what a novelty.’

This comes after the budding host was announced as the daytime show’s latest presenter.
She replaced Big Brother’s Bit on the Side presenter Rylan, who announced he would be taking a break from his role in December.
In a recent interview with The Sun, he said: ‘Some have said I’m having a baby, getting divorced and terminally ill. I just needed a break for my head, for my body, for my peace of mind.
‘I just needed a little break from working three, four, five jobs. That’s all. I don’t get holiday, I’m self-employed. That’s a really big risk for anyone in telly. There’s always 100 people that are ready to do your job – but I needed to do it.
