Taking to Instagram on Monday, Casey shared a video of her jam-packed media day in Sydney doing TV and radio interviews with her fellow cast members, Marina Prior and Erin Clare.

She wore a purple floral top with black leather pants while making appearances on The Morning Show, Studio 10 and Afternoons with Deborah Knight.

What a day!!! Here's a snapshot of a day in the life of spreading the fun of 9 to 5 on our publicity trail,” she captioned the post.

Casey’s followers quickly took to the comments to applaud her “beautiful” appearance and “gorgeous” outfit.

“You look amazing and so happy,” one person wrote, with another adding, “Gosh you look stunning”.

“You are glowing from the inside out, true beauty always,” a third shared.


“Can’t wait to see you in this Casey! You are looking wonderful,” someone else remarked, followed by a different user who said, “Looking great Casey! Busy day but you look super happy about it”.

Other fans remarked that the I’m A Celebrity champion looks “fabulous”, “amazing” and “so hot”, and exudes “pure joy”.

Casey has starred in a number of stage productions since her reality TV debut in 2006, including The Sapphires, We Will Rock You and Chicago alongside Natalie Bassingthwaighte.

Speaking with The Morning Show hosts about joining the cast of 9 to 5, she explained that she felt like she could partly relate to the story of three working women dealing with a sexist boss.

“Just growing up in the industry and working your way through being a teenager and a young lady, you certainly come up against your battles,” she said.

“And you’ve got to keep going and that’s testament to this show is three women that feel empowered to get moving and get out of bed and get it done.”
