Emma Willis teases 'amazing' future for I'm A Celeb pal Giovanna Fletcher as she predicts she'll WIN the show

EMMA Willis has teased an "amazing" future for her best pal Giovanna Fletcher, who she has predicted will WIN this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

The 44-year-old The Voice UK presenter admitted she'd be "very surprised" if the 35-year-old author isn't crowned Queen of the Castle after the new series kicks off on Sunday.

Emma insisted that in their 15 years of friendship she is yet to see a "dark" side to Giovanna, adding that she is one of the nicest people she's ever met.

Speaking to The Sun Online, the star explained: "I've known her for 15 years and from the minute I met her I was like: 'I don't believe you, there's some darkness in there' – and I'm still looking for it.

"Genuinely, she's just an incredible human being; she's really considerate and thoughtful.

"She is like what you want your mum to be, she's just so motherly but that is Gi. She is fun, and one of the nicest human beings, and very lovely.


"So if she doesn't walk out the winner I'll be very surprised, I mean, I'll be voting."

And Emma reckons that I'm A Celeb is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Giovanna, with the world her oyster once she leaves the castle.

She told us: "Gi could literally turn her hand to anything, she could do anything.

"She's one of the busiest people I know, so I don't know what she is planning after the show but whatever it is will be amazing."


Emma previously told us that Giovanna was BANNED from taking her first choice luxury item into camp – which was something that crafty Emma had suggested.

The TV favourite said she'd encouraged Gi to choose long cycling shorts to prevent "cockroaches from crawling up her butt" – but it was shot down by show bosses, with clothing forbidden as a luxury item.

With Giovanna unable to take her first choice of luxury item into camp, she might opt for something a little more personal as Emma revealed the devoted mum will "desperately miss" her three sons.

The star shares six-year-old Buzz, four-year-old Buddy, and two-year-old Max with McFly husband Tom Fletcher – and Emma is certain they will never be far from her mind.


She said: "If she's in there until the end that's three weeks, and she's also in isolation now without her children so that will be four – that's a bloody long time for any parent.

"I have no doubt it will get to her and she will desperately miss them, but she watches I'm A Celeb every year and she knows exactly what she's getting into.

"She's pretty clued-up and a huge fan of the show, Dougie [Poynter, Tom's bandmate] and Matt have been in it and won it so she knows exactly what to expect."


Emma's husband Matt was crowned King of the Jungle when he took part in I'm A Celeb back in 2006, but the star revealed he didn't have any words of wisdom for the campmate-to-be.

Emma told us: "He didn't give her any tips, he just said you're going to have the best time of your life.

"It's one of Matt's most favourite experiences, he had the best time in there."

But before I'm A Celeb launches at 9pm on Sunday, The Voice UK will reach its long-awaited conclusion – and Emma can't wait to crown the winner of this year's series of the singing competition.

The presenter admitted that she was thrilled the contestants get to enjoy the experience of a final after the fate of the show was thrown into chaos amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Having taken a few months off air, it is now back with strict health and safety precautions in the studio – and judge Meghan Trainor dialling in via video call due to travel restrictions from her US home.

Gevanni Hutton, Jonny Brooks, Brooke Scullion, and Blessing Chitapa will battle it out to be crowned winner on Saturday night – and Emma believes that the victory could go to any one of them.

  • The Voice UK Final airs on Saturday 14th November at 8.40pm on ITV
