Toff later revealed that she was badly bullied at the age of 12 while attending boarding school, saying that:

‘A group of girls didn’t like me and picked on me on a daily basis. They were ever so bitchy. But I moved on, with the support of my family. Even talking about it now makes me well up with tears.’

The 24-year-old has taken it in her stride, however, and credits the bullies for teaching her to to take on a positive outlook in life.

The Headmistress of the Maynard school which Georgia attended commented that:

‘As a school that prides itself on its warmth and happiness we were saddened to hear that Georgia did not fully enjoy her short time at the Maynard ten years ago. The staff here have very positive things to say about Georgia and we congratulate her on her success in the jungle and wish her well in the future.’

2012 – She Dropped Out Of University Where She Studied Law

Toff says that in spite all her friends and family thinking that there’s something going on, the romance side of their relationship just ‘never took off’.

She said to the Daily Mail:

‘I’ll get in his bed and we’ll watch movies in PJs and stuff, but for me, because we’re so close as friends I don’t think of it like that. Even my family are like: ‘There’s gotta be something going on.’ But disappointingly, no.’
