'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!' winner Giovanna Fletcher still has her gilet and fleece from the programme, but she hasn't washed either clothing item because she wants to retain the "essence" of her castle experience

Giovanna Fletcher hasn't washed her 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' outfit because she wanted to "keep the essence" of her experience.

The 36-year-old author was crowned Queen of the Castle on the ITV show in December and she has her gilet and fleece hung up on the back of a door in her house, but she admitted they "do not smell good" after she refused to clean them.

She said: "I might have pinched my gilet and my fleece.

"I haven't washed them – I've done that thing that I did with my wedding dress, in the sense that I didn't want to wash them because I want it to keep the essence of what I experienced.

"I sniffed it earlier and it did not smell good."

Last year's 'I'm A Celebrity' took place in Gwrych Castle, north Wales, rather than the usual location in New South Wales, Australia, but Giovanna admitted she would find it hard to turn down the chance to hand over her crown Down Under if the show returns to the Southern Hemisphere this year.

She said: "I've not been asked if I'll go over, but I don't know how I wouldn't manage to go over to Australia.

"And giving away the crown ... it's just such an amazing show to be part of.

"I would be so jealous this year, but I think I would find it harder if people were going back into the castle.

"Because that's our home. It sounds ridiculous, but those walls are the walls we looked at for three weeks."

Giovanna has been getting into running recently, and she has received some tips from her former campmate Sir Mo Farah.

She explained: "I went for a 5k run the other day and at the end of it you do that typical thing where you post it on Instagram like, 'Go me,' because I've done it, I've got to prove it.

"But I also sent a video to Mo.

"I was like, 'Mo, I've been out for a 5k, it took me a while and I might have walked a tiny bit, but I did it.'

"He sent me a video back and he was like, 'Well done, Gi, just keep going. Every day or every time you go out, just do a little more or go a little bit further.' "

And Giovanna revealed her and her 'I'm A Celebrity' co-stars are hoping to arrange for their families to all meet at some point, after they were denied the chance to bond with one another during last year's 'I'm A Celebrity', as a result of the coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

Speaking on 'Lorraine', she added: "It would be nice for our families to meet each other, and the people we still talk about all the time."
