She’s the Real Housewives of Melbourne star who is known for her feisty attitude and fiery temper.

‘The show was based on extreme wealth and extreme drama and I thought I did my job well, but the downside to doing a job like well is that people tend to hate you.’
She added that she no longer wants to be perceived as that sort of character, and hopes her stint in the jungle will help viewers see it simply isn’t her.
‘I loved the show but hopefully I have been able to shred that image and be the Pettifleur that I am to my friends and family on I’m A Celebrity,’ she added.
