She’s not been out of the Australian jungle for long but Lioness and I’m a Celeb winner, Jill Scott, is back home in the North West and has been enjoying a night of Christmas festivities at Mercedes-Benz of Stockport.
Jill didn’t have far to travel to the event as she lives in nearby Northenden with her partner Shelly Unitt where they own and run the Boxx2Boxx coffee shop.
The midfielder was famously photographed at work in the coffee shop just days after the Lionesses’ historic Euros 2022 win and she’s been quick to return to the UK again following her recent I’m a Celeb win.
At the event, hosted by automotive dealer group LSH Auto, Jill put the days of rice, beans and witchetty grubs behind her and instead enjoyed sampling local food and drink that was on offer from local artisan stallholders and shopping for Christmas presents.
She was chatting to showroom staff and fellow event goers and watched the performance put on by Lady Barn House School’s Choir.
Jill was recently crowned ‘Queen of the Jungle’ for 2022 after beating Owen Warner and Matt Hancock in the ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get me out of here’ final. She retired from professional football after 17 years in August this year, just after the Lionesses’ huge victory at the UEFA Women's Euro 2022.
