Kerri-Anne Kennerley's secret I'm A Celebrity contract demand revealed

The TV legend will officially enter the jungle during Monday night's episode.

She’s been asked to appear on every season of the reality show since it premiered in 2015, and now finally Kerri-Anne Kennerley is heading into the jungle as a contestant on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

While the TV legend will officially enter the show during Monday night’s episode in a challenge alongside MAFS bride Domenica Calarco, it was announced during the premiere that she will be one of this year’s famous campmates.

Before her entrance, Kerri-Anne Kennerley told she finally decided to say yes to Channel 10 because she was offered a pay cheque she “couldn’t refuse”.

She also revealed that her contract came with “a few provisos” - similar to how Shane Warne was given permission to smoke when he appeared on the show in 2016.


The 69-year-old told producers she would only fly to South Africa and film the series if she was allowed to bring her beauty products with her.

“I get to take makeup,” she said. “Natural is very overrated.

“I can’t be bothered doing that much, but it won’t be natural because natural takes a long time. Every girl knows that.”

When asked if she was worried about how her fellow campmates would react to her unique contract clause, Kerri-Anne replied: “They should just get better management. Not my problem.”
