I’m A Celebrity 2020: Nikki Osborne Out Of The Jungle
Comedian Nikki Osborne is the next celebrity to farewell the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ camp.
The second celeb to leave the camp after fellow comedian Dilruk Jayasinha, Nikki said goodbye to her campmates after surviving over two weeks in the jungle.
The self-described bush barbie was a constant source of entertainment in camp, from her ongoing war with a particularly aggressive male baboon, to her running commentary and classic one liners.
Things weren’t always a walk in the park for Nikki who -- during a tucker trial with Dilruk -- suffered an intense bout of vertigo and was forced to stop the trial early.
Despite being in tears as she was being carried out of a giant tombola, Nikki still kept her sense of humour telling Dil, “All my Instagram followers just unsubscribed”.
The mum-of-two was in the jungle raising money for Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect). As a mum of a child diagnosed with Autism, Nikki knows the difficulties and stigma around the condition.
In a heartfelt chat with the other celebs Nikki said, “Autism is an epidemic at the moment. It’s everywhere. Kids are getting diagnosed everywhere and yet... It’s so misunderstood”.
“My charity works with families and is creating awareness so people understand the disability is not weird, it’s just someone having a hard time. And I want it to become normal for the abnormal.”
“Someone should be able to say yeah, I have autism. There should be no shame.”
Nikki had also been using her luxury item -- a Polaroid camera -- to snap raunchy shots of her campmates in order to create a swimsuit calendar to raise money in support of bushfire relief.
While it was for a good cause, we may never get the image of Billy Brownless in undies splayed out on a rock out of our heads.
