It was a 24-hour whirlwind and I can’t thank everyone enough for all of the support – whether you watched with us and laughed (and cried) with us, hung up, or voted. It was an all-out blast.
“ A huge love for antanddecs for being complete and utter legends – even when they make me eat a bull penis. I also have to give a shout out to everyone who’s on the show – it helped make this so special.
Giovanna concluded her message by saying: “ Finally … Thank you for your endless love and support. Great love, the queen of your castle. xxxx ‘

Earlier in the day, Giovanna managed to catch up with her husband Tom shortly after the result was announced, as the couple met over a phone call.
The McFly star, 35, revealed on Instagram on Saturday that she managed to meet a call near midnight after her historic win.
Tom shared a screenshot of their call, stating that his wife’s name is kept in the name Gi wife Fletcher, and commenting on his message: “For the first time I’m talking to the Queen!
Reunion: Earlier in the day, Giovanna met her husband Tom on the phone after she was crowned Queen of the Castle at Friday’s show.
Commenting on the unusual contact name, he added, “I know her name on my phone is ridiculous!”
The proud husband later shared another snapshot showing their three sons – Buzz, Six, Buddy, Four, and two-year-old Max – waiting for Giovanna to return home.
The three boys can be seen sitting on the window sill looking out in anticipation of being reunited with their mother after a three-week stint in camp.
Very proud: Before she got home, Tom revealed that the couple managed to chat on the phone shortly before midnight Friday.
It comes after Giovanna said she felt as though she had proven that mothers are “ strong ” and can “ do anything ” after she was crowned winning I’m A Celebrity 2020.
On Saturday’s episode of I’m a Celebrity … The Daily Drop, the writer said, “Without mothers, nothing else is possible,” before gushing over how excited she was to embrace her beloved children and co-star husband McFly Tom.
Giovanna continued, “ So I feel like I’ve shown moms can do anything, and I mostly hope to make my kids proud. I think I’ll figure it out when I get back home.
She went on to explain that her victory had not yet “drowned” and “didn’t feel real,” saying it was “the strangest thing ever.”
‘my queen!’ The pair shared a screenshot from their phone call, adding, “The first time I spoke to the Queen.”

Speaking via the video link in the episode, she continued, “No, it didn’t drown. I don’t think it will drown for a short time. It’s the strangest thing ever.
We spent three weeks in a castle and now there are people and I have a crown on my head. It doesn’t feel real at all.
Giovanna prepares to go home and meet her husband Tom and her three children.
But she sarcastically said that after “a few tantrums,” she would “want to return to castle life,” before flowing lovingly that she cannot wait to return to “normal life.”
Family: It comes after Giovanna said she felt as though she had proven mothers are ‘strong’ and can ‘do anything’ after winning I’m A Celebrity 2020 (pictured with her sons and Tom)
The blogger said, “Tomorrow we’re back to all of that with a bang. Give her some tantrums and I’ll hope to return to castle life.
She continued, “ Soon when I get home, I’m going to have a lot of kisses and hugs and get back to reality again.
And just a normal life. It feels strange because we don’t know what’s going on in the world.
Strong mother: Although she still understands the fact that she won, Giovanna joked that she was sure that after “a few tantrums” at home she would be “wishing to return to the life of the castle.”
The mother of three expected her children would want to play games inspired by the horrific experiences of I’m A Celebrity after watching her on the hit reality TV show.
Speaking of their reaction to her victory, she explained, “I can only imagine their little faces now. I imagine the older ones just kept awake and watched. They wouldn’t believe it.
I can already imagine the trials taking place at home. We will take inspiration from them and make games. If they don’t already. I can imagine that snakes are made of all kinds.
win over! Friday’s Final, I Celebrity, saw Giovanna crowned the first ever Queen of the Castle, with Jordan North finishing second and Vernon Kaye finishing third.
