But she admits her greater loyalties lie with Boris, having formed a close friendship with his father Stanley during their appearance on reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
She said: ‘I’m a slight betting woman and had money on Jeremy Hunt at the end of last year, because the odds were really good, 18-1 or something.
‘I think it’ll be Hunt and Boris in the end, and as a great friend of Stanley’s I’d have to put my backing behind Boris.’

Georgia’s comments come after MailOnline revealed she was spending time with a wealthy aristocrat and former adviser to Nigel Farage who served time in a US jail for offering to launder money for drug lords.

They describe the two as now being an ‘item’ who spend a considerable amount of time together at his £2.5million flat in west London while also enjoying weekend breaks at the Cottrell family pile in Worcestershire.
‘George is quite a character and a charmer, he has a real way with words,’ a friend told MailOnline.
‘His relationship with Georgia is well known to their friends and families, it’s not something they are trying to hide. They are out in public a lot, doing normal things that couples do, like going shopping or going for dinner.

‘I’m surprised nobody has realised until now who George is but I’m sure Georgia knows about his background.
‘He’s got quite a chequered history, having spent time in prison and is very high profile, given his connections to Farage. You could say that George is your typical upper class rogue.’
Cottrell was spectacularly arrested and led away in handcuffs by FBI agents in July 2016 while with Farage, who maintained afterwards that he did not know about his background, at Chicago’s O’Hare airport.

He spent eight months in a US jail after advertising his services on the ‘dark web’, offering to launder the money through his offshore accounts to what he thought was a gang of drug traffickers. They were actually FBI agents carrying out an undercover operation.
Before his arrest, Cottrell ran Farage’s private office, handled all media enquiries for the former UKIP leader and was also one of his closest aides, playing a key role in the Brexit campaign.
