On Thursday, Lisa Oldfield vehemently denied claims she was heading into the South African jungle as an intruder on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
And calling into the Kyle and Jackie O Show the following morning, The Real Housewives of Sydney star once again tried to put a stop to the suggestions.
‘I haven’t even got a valid passport! I’ve never been camping in my life!’ the 43-year-old proclaimed.
Doth protest too much? On Friday, Lisa Oldfield called into to the Kyle and Jackie O Show to once again deny rumours she would be appearing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Lisa’s name immediately popped up earlier in the week after it was revealed that ‘Australia’s most dysfunctional couple’ would be appearing on the Channel 10 reality show together.
The outspoken brunette has been married to former politician David Oldfield since 2001, and the pair have a notoriously colourful union, as seen on The Real Housewives of Sydney.
Lisa once called being married to David a ‘nightmare’, and on a separate occasion said she offered him a ‘sympathy shag’.

Speaking with Kyle and Jackie O on Friday, Lisa claimed she wouldn’t star on I’m A Celebrity, because it would mean she’d have to spend time with David without ‘the buffer of booze and kids’.
However, the star also claimed she hasn’t been drinking since January 1st.
‘I’ve been off the booze for 45 days. I’m more ripped at the moment… I wouldn’t mind going in the jungle actually because I’d lose some more weight!’
‘Impossible’:’She claimed ‘It would be nigh on impossible for David and I to leave our two small boys for a month to spend in the wilds of South Africa’
On Thursday, Lisa initially denied I’m A Celebrity rumours, telling Daily Mail Australia: ‘It would be nigh on impossible for David and I to leave our two small boys for a month to spend in the wilds of South Africa’.
It came after PR queen Roxy Jacenko suggested the dysfunctional couple set to star on the show were Lisa and David.
In response to Roxy’s allegation, bluntly stated: ‘Really? Well she knows how to spin PR I guess’.
She cuttingly added: ‘Admittedly, I’d find David and I eminently more watchable’.
Ouch! Lisa claimed she wouldn’t star on I’m A Celebrity, because it would mean she’d have to spend time with David without ‘the buffer of booze and kids
It’s unclear whether Channel Ten has opted to fly in the mystery celebrity couple in a bid to boost the show’s lagging ratings.
On Wednesday, the show attracted 515,000 viewers across the 5 metro cities, far behind rivals Married At First Sight (1.13 million) and My Kitchen Rules (930,000).
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Channel Ten for comment.
Not jungle bound? Both Lisa and Roxy Jacenko have denied that they and their respective spouses will show up on I’m A Celebrity… so
