Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo has revealed she was allowed to take make-up into the I'm A Celebrity jungle – despite it being banned for other contestants. The 23-year-old Made in Chelsea star, who was crowned winner of the 2017 series, confirmed to the Sun that she was given permission to apply foundation because of a pre-existing skin condition. "I honestly wouldn't have been able to look any of my campmates in the eye if I didn't have my make-up on," Toff admitted. "When producers told me it was banned I broke down in tears and said, 'I can't do this'.

"I've been to the doctors so much over the years. It's a medical problem and I've been on strong tablets for six months trying to get rid of [the spots]. So show bosses agreed that because it was a medical problem, I was allowed to put foundation on once a day in the morning. I wish I could walk around with no make-up on but I have big angry red marks all down the side of my cheeks. Some people don't understand how badly it upsets my confidence and upsets me."

However, the reality star also revealed that her jungle diet – which mainly consisted of rice and beans - has done wonders for her skin. "I think it must be something I'm eating," she added. "I'm going to have allergy tests."
