Giovanna Fletcher’s brother Mario Falcone has revealed he’s hoping the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton will be voting for her to win I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! tonight.

Ahead of tonight’s final, former TOWIE star Mario, 32, told OK! online that he wonders if Kate – who Giovanna, 35, interviewed for her Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast back in February – will be picking up the app and voting for his sister.

Speaking about Kate, 38, Mario told OK!: “I’d like to think she will be voting [for Giovanna] – they’re both royalty in their own way!

“I’d like to think she’s sitting there on the app giving Giovanna her five votes, and I think she’ll take the Queen’s phone and voting for Giovanna as well.”

Mario believes that Giovanna’s candid interview with the royal was so revealing as she’s a natural at putting people at ease.

He said: “Giovanna would have never in a million years thought she was going to interview royalty on her podcast.

“And then from there to be on I’m A Celeb – they’re things she wouldn’t even dream of, but through hard work and perseverance she’s achieved them.

“It was massive. That was just another level. Giovanna does interview some fantastically inspirational people who have amazing stories, but when it’s someone like Kate, and the way that she opened up to my sister the way she did, I think that’s testament to what my sister embodies. People feel comfortable around her.”

Speaking during her time in the famous castle, Giovanna recalled that Kate, who opened up about the highs and lows of motherhood, was “divine, absolutely elegant [and] self-deprecating”.

Giovanna, who also dubbed the royal her “girl crush”, explained: “What a complete career high, just two mums nattering away, but in true mum fashion, we were nattering so much that by the end we were drinking cold tea."

The interview, set to last 45 minutes, actually went on for closer to 90 as they chatted.

Giovanna continued: "Basically Prince William had come in as the [comms team] was briefing her and he just said, 'Just talk, don't worry about saying anything you shouldn't or exposing too much, we can change it in the edit, just talk.'"

Mario told OK! that his ambitious sister is finally reaping the rewards after years of graft.

He explained: “She’s worked hard for the last seven years from where she was, just being Tom’s wife, to being a celebrity and being invited to be in I’m A Celeb.”

The reality star also believes her sister will agree to walk down the aisle with hubby Tom Fletcher all over again, after the McFly star suggested they should renew their wedding vows on their ten-year anniversary in two years’ time.

Mario, who is engaged to Becky Miesner, said: “I’ve been meaning to get married for the past two years and I could just see them renewing their vows before we even get married!

“I think she’ll be up for it. I can’t see why not. They’re as infatuated with each other now as they were when Tom came to our house when he was 14.”

Mario – who is hoping his sister pips Jordan North and Vernon Kay to the post tonight, to be crowned Queen of the Castle – said Giovanna is a winner in his eyes regardless.

He said: “If she doesn’t win, I think she’ll still be a winner in the public’s eyes. I think she’ll be the one that goes on to great things, I honestly do. Just by being in the final, she’s won.

“Before, people saw Giovanna as being the mum through her podcast and books, but they didn’t know Giovanna, so now everybody sees that. Every single door will be open to her, whether she comes third or first.”

“I think she’s a role model for mums and young women. Look up to people like my sister and the way she conducts herself.”
