Georgia Toffolo’s talent agency is hit by money woes as it owes £400,000 to creditors – despite negotiating a £1.5 million deal for pal Nigel Farage to appear on I’m A Celebrity
It’s a good thing former Made In Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo has struck a lucrative deal to get her pal Nigel Farage onto I’m A Celebrity.
Accounts for Toff’s talent agency were filed at the end of October and show net assets of £11,000 – while creditors were owed more than £400,000.
This comes after Georgia personally managed negotations for pal Nigel Farage to appear on the upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!
It’s thought that he will be paid a staggering £1.5 million — three times the highest fee so far paid to a celebrity in the show’s 21-year history.
Georgia Toffolo – known best as Toff – won the show in 2017 and was said to be personally managing negotiations between ITV and Nigel.

She is known to be friends with the politician and dated his former aide, the financier George Cottrell – known as ‘Posh George’.
Toff, who made her name appearing on Made In Chelsea, owns the company Visionary Talent Agency.
An ITV insider said: ‘It was certainly a first, a former I’m A Celeb winner brokering a deal for another contestant.
‘Nigel has been offered the chance to go to the jungle several times but Toff has made it happen this time. Everyone involved in the deal is thrilled. It is most definitely a goodie.’
Former health secretary Matt Hancock came third in the 2022 series, while Nadine Dorries, who was culture secretary under Boris Johnson, was eliminated by the public first in 2012.
Both lost the Conservative whip, which means sitting as an independent in the House of Commons, for taking part in the show.
Former MPs including Edwina Currie in 2014, Lembit Opik in 2010 and Robert Kilroy-Silk in 2008 have also been on the show.
The full lineup for the upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity was revealed on Thursday, with soap stars, TV presenters, a retired boxer and a politician named as among the stars heading to the Australian outback.
