Vernon Kay defends I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! winner Giovanna Fletcher following a snide dig from Piers Morgan.
Giovanna Fletcher recently became the Queen of the Castle in the latest season of I’m a Celebrity. But that wasn’t adequate enough to halt Piers Morgan from throwing a dig during an interview with second runner-up Vernon Kay.
Talking to him on Good Morning Britain, Piers asked Vernon:
You got beaten by somebody in a programme called I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! You got beaten by somebody I’ve never heard of. Who is Giovanna Fletcher?
The former model responded:
She’s got huge followers with her podcast and the books that herself and her husband Tom write. But do you know what Piers, she’s the most loveliest person I think I’ve met in a long, long time. She was really, really endearing, really sweet, really compassionate.
She had the greatest skill of just listening to people talk. I know that well-being is at the top of everyone’s list recently, and she was really good at just listening to people’s issues, their problems, what they like, what they didn’t like.
And I think as a fellow campmate of Giovanna’s, I thought she was well and truly deserved being crowned Queen.
Giovanna Fletcher, 35, is perhaps best recognized as the presenter of Happy Mum, Happy Baby Podcast.

She’s also a successful author, having published 11 novels and topping the Sunday Times bestsellers list. She’s written two other books with her husband, McFly’s Tom Fletcher.
In addition, she might be a familiar face to the regular ITV audiences, appearing on the morning chat show Lorraine, and is currently hosting the CBeebies’ ground-breaking show The Baby Club.
