Gerogie Toffolo took to Instagram on Wednesday to profess her love for Swedish pop legends ABBA.

The TV personality, 27, took to the mic backstage at the band’s Voyage gig in London to sing their hit Dancing Queen.

Donning a vintage-inspired jumpsuit, the blonde beauty threw her arms up in the air as she knew every word, calling the evening a “highlight of life”.

‘It’s a highlight of life!’: Georgia Toffolo, 27, donned a 1970s jumpsuit to sing backstage at ABBA’s Voyage to London concert on Wednesday

Georgia danced in the mini recording studio backstage at the purpose-built hall in Stratford, alongside other ABBA memorabilia.

The camera moved from Benny Andersson’s piano to the former Made In Chelsea star who sang passionately into the microphone.

Georgia playfully played the famous hit, pointing fingers at friends before breaking into giggles.

The reality TV star looked stunning in a perfectly chosen floral belted playsuit, which clung to her fantastic figure.

Opting for a simple makeup palette for the evening, the star let her blonde tresses fall straight down her back.

She captioned the fun clip: “For people who know me well, this is truly a highlight of life.”

The five-year concert sees audiences transported to ABBA’s heyday in the 1970s and 1980s as the oddball avatars sang classics including SOS and Mamma Mia, accompanied by a ten-piece live band.

The Daily Mail’s Adrian Thrills praised the show, which is booked until May 2023, giving it a generous four-star review, praising the avatars for their “realistic” looks and “rocking” performances.

The reviewer said highlights included a dance medley featuring Lay All Your Love On Me and Summer Night City, their performance of Waterloo – which saw the avatars projected against vintage footage of ABBA winning the Eurovision Song Contest from the song at Brighton in 1974.

Describing the show as ‘a concert like no other’, he wrote: ‘For those who were lucky enough to attend the opening show last night of Abba’s virtual residence in London, there was no only one conclusion: Mamma Mia! How can we resist you?

But he noted the inevitable downside of an avatar-led concert, as he admitted there could be no audience interaction or spontaneous moments as normally seen in a live performance.

“The staging was undoubtedly spectacular, but there are still innate shortcomings in any virtual show,” he concluded.

The realistic avatars were created using motion capture and other technologies by Industrial Light and Magic, the special effects firm founded by Star Wars director George Lucas.

For five weeks, the group recorded their movements with 160 cameras trained on them and an 85-person recording crew, which were then used as reference points to create the avatars.

An impressive billion hours of rendering were then collectively logged by 1,000 special effects pioneers at four different studios to create the final result, ABBA Voyage.

During the concert, the ABBAtars appeared on a 65 million pixel screen, with lights and other effects creating a futuristic 2D performance, made more realistic by a ten-piece band.
