Meet Georgia Toffolo’s new millionaire CEO boyfriend James Watt
He keeps posting their couple pics to LinkedIn
Made in Chelsea OG and I’m A Celeb winner Georgia Toffolo (aka Toff) is officially loved-up and – in true MIC style – her boyfriend is a millionaire entrepreneur who’s been travelling everywhere from the Maldives to Mumbai with her and posting their loved up pics on LinkedIn of all places.
Anyway, in case you’re curious about Toff’s love life away from MIC (remember when she was trying to date floppy-haired Richard?!) here’s everything you need to know about the 40-year-old BrewDog founder, James Watt.
So, how did Toff and her new boyfriend actually meet?
Toff was first rumoured to be dating James after they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend in the summer. Since then, they’ve posted loads of photos together and, while they were in Mumbai on a recent trip, Georgia publicly announced her feelings for James. While he was giving a speech in a bar, she yelled out “woo, I love you James Watt!” and posted the video to Instagram. So, it’s safe to say things are going well.
And, according to reports, Toff has already been to Scotland to meet James’ family and regularly visits him at work: “Toff has never been happier – she is grinning from ear to ear and it is lovely to see,” a friend told the MailOnline. “They have spent a lot of time together since meeting. They just hit it off instantly.”
So, what does Toff’s boyfriend actually do? And how much is he worth?
James is the CEO of the huge Scottish beer company BrewDog, which you’ve probably seen in almost every bar you’ve ever been in. And off the back of running the 14th most valuable beer company in the world, James is worth a humungous £262million.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing for the business, though. BrewDog staff accused James of creating a “culture of fear” in the workplace in an open letter in April 2022. And female employees had posted their experiences of working at the company on Instagram a year earlier, saying their team had been broken up and told “too many women in a work environment is unhealthy” with another adding: “The panic that surges through people when he [Watt] is in town is TOXIC,” The Times reported.
Speaking on the Diary of a CEO podcast, James later admitted: “It’s completely fair to say, at times in the journey, I have been too intense. I have been too demanding, I have set standards for the team which I would set for myself, and for a lot of the team members that is unattainable.
“I think I might have some kind of light-level autism in the mix that would explain some of the social cue thing, some of the mindset thing. So I’m working with a specialist to see if there’s a diagnosis there or not.”
