Georgia Toffolo is expected to appear on I'm A Celeb's spin-off show next week - but won't return to crown this year's champion.

I'm A Celeb fans will notice one huge break from tradition during this year's series finale as last year's winner Georgia Toffolo WON'T return to crown the new king or queen of the jungle.

It will mark the first time in six years that the tradition hasn't been upheld - with Scarlett Moffatt doing the honours in last year's finale.

A show insider told MailOnline: "Toff is due to fly out to Australia this week, for a stint on [sister show] Extra Camp. But she'll be flying back after that, to the UK.

"There's still about another week of the show left after she returns. And there aren't plans for her to go back again.

"This means she won't be there to personally crown whoever wins this current season."

I'm A Celeb fans were already feeling dismayed by the show with fix claims surrounding Anne Hegerty's latest task.

Anne faced her fears during the live 'Sick Chair Challenge' Bushtucker Trial on Sunday night, which involved eating jungle-based delicacies.

However, fans are questioning the legitimacy of the trial after The Chase star was seen to down 'liquidised fish eyes' with ease.

Anne, who had been exempt from previous Bushtuckers on medical grounds, saw off the pint in just twelve seconds without so much as a shudder - leading many to suspect it was in fact a soft drink she was downing.

One person argued: “Anne’s drink was definitely coke or ice coffee no way was it fish eye juice! She didn’t gag yet the other day she was gagging when they were talking about spit and sweat.”

Another viewer commented: “This is what i am saying she is drinking coke cola it was a fizzy drink what @anne_hegerty was drinking. The show is a fix!”

In light of the fix claims, a spokesperson for I'm A Celebrity told The Sun Online: “There is categorically absolutely no truth to this at all.”
