I’M A Celebrity winner Giovanna Fletcher broke down in tears last night as she watched the A Castle Story catch-up show.
The first ever Queen of the Castle loved seeing her campmates again, albeit on screen, and only had positives about her time on the programme.
With tears in her eyes, she said: “I miss them. I’m bawling my eyes out at that. We honestly had the best time. Those 11 friends are the best people ever. I couldn’t have asked to be hidden away in a Welsh castle with anyone better. They were incredible.
“It’s so good watching them back. I miss them all and I miss the experience, but what a time we had.”
Over the weekend HOAR exclusively revealed ITV wants Giovanna as their next big star — with a possible ten shows earning her up to £4million.
The mum-of-three has been inundated with big-money offers since she was crowned Queen of the Castle earlier this month.
ITV hope her success on their flagship entertainment show puts them in pole position to woo her.
An insider said: “Giovanna’s popularity went through the roof on Celebrity and after being crowned the winner ITV hope to champion her.
“Bosses had a meeting where ten jobs were mooted, all of which would be perfect for her.
“They see Giovanna as the next Davina McCall — she’s a great all-rounder and could work on anything from panel shows to kids’ TV.
“She could earn up to £4million over the next few years if she took up all their offers.
“But she’s not rushing into anything.
“Everyone wants a piece of her and there have been meetings with a number of big channels and production companies.
“Naturally ITV would love to have her as a long-term member of their TV family.”
Podcast host Giovanna, 35, was cheered to victory at Gwyrch Castle, North Wales, by her husband, McFly singer Tom Fletcher, 35, and their sons, Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and Max, two.
She has already announced her first TV venture since the show ended on December 4 — fronting The Toddler Club At Home on CBeebies.
