Toff has dismissed rumours she’s campaigning for the Tory party following her recent visit to Parliament.

The 23-year-old was spotted in the House Of Commons last week, getting cosy snaps with Tory MPs Jacob Rees-Mogg and Ben Bradley.

Following the encounters, rumours began to circulate the Made In Chelsea star was in talks to help campaign for the party and give them youthful appeal.

Toff however has since explained how she met the MPs for a VT about Winston Churchill for This Morning, as the show adopts her as a new daytime presenter.

Speaking about the incident, Toff said: ‘It was a fantastic time. It was a massive bucket list thing.

‘But then they span it into this huge political story that I had been there to start campaigning – that was a load of nonsense. I hated that.

‘It makes you not want to do anything and I don’t want to work with them on campaigns and stuff. I thought it was really cheeky of them. I want to be really neutral.’

But would 2017’s I’m A Celebrity winner ever consider a shift to politics?

‘There have been a lot of crossover with celebrities and politics but to me, I don’t think I would go into politics,’ Toff says.

‘Perhaps when I’m a lot older. I don’t think I’m intelligent to become an MP! I have my opinions but to go into politics you have to be very clever, which I’m not!

‘Plus, I don’t like people hating on me and lots of nasty comments. I think you have to have really thick skin to be in politics – which I just lack. I think I’m just too nice!’

Celebrities crossing over into politics has seen recent success with the rise of Donald Trump, but she can’t imagine that sort of adulation happening in British politics.

‘We do often follow trends from America,’ Toff says. ‘But then I can’t imagine any British stars doing that cross over. Piers Morgan for PM? Maybe not.’

Phew.

You can catch This Morning weekdays on ITV at 10.30am.
