Here’s why Toff almost left the I’m A Celeb jungle early

Anna O'Rourke

Fresh from her I’m A Celebrity win, Toff has revealed that she wasn’t always so hardy.

She may have earned herself the nickname Tough Toff in camp after taking on numerous nasty Bushtucker Trials but it turns out she almost walked early on in her jungle stint.

The Made in Chelsea star, who’s 23, came close to quitting the show ten days in when hunger left her weak.

In scenes that never made it to air, it was the camp doctor who convinced her to stay.

“I said to Medic Bob, ‘I can’t carry on’,” she said. “I remember trying to do my hair in plaits and I couldn’t even lift my arms up. I thought I would have to leave. I didn’t get any extra food or drink. Medic Bob just said, ‘Come on Toff, it’s hit you first because you’re the smallest. Be strong. He gave me the best pep talk, I had a tear rolling down my cheek. He talked me off the edge and I was all right. I had to distract myself with the Bushtucker Trials.”

Thank God she didn’t – Toff went on to boss loads of trials, including lying high up in the air in a tank full of snakes and eating and drinking whatever was put in front of her.

She admitted that the jungle weight loss did hit her in one place worse than others, though – her boobs.

“I had small boobies anyway and I looked down and I was completely flat. I took in chicken fillets (into the jungle) in my bra, but I accidentally lay on one and burst it.”
