She’s the stunning blonde bombshell who has enjoyed an impressive career as a model.
But on Thursday, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star Simone Holtznagel was critcised by radio host Mick Molloy for her figure in an on-air body shaming incident.
On Triple M’s Kennedy Molloy drive show, the 51-year-old accused the 24-year-old of being too large to be a model, in comments that left co-host Jane Kennedy shocked.

Describing Simone, Mick said: ‘She claims to be a model of some description. She claims to be a world class international model. I can bullsh*t on that.’
‘I mean, maybe a plus size model,’ he continued as he took aim at the Bras N Things model’s appearance.
‘She’s been in the jungle for 10 weeks now and still,’ Mick then added, before humming The Baby Elephant Walk song.

Co-host Jane Kennedy sounded taken aback at his vicious critisicism and defended Simone.
‘Come on, that is incredibly rude of you,’ Jane hit back.
Simone, who is currently in the South African jungle has enjoyed an illustrious career after shooting into the spotlight as runner-up on Cycle Seven of Australia’s Next Top Model.
The genetically blessed star has also posed for Playboy and Guess among other high-profile campaigns.

It comes after Mick claimed the same day that TV reality stars need to be ‘more interesting,’ while insisting the nation’s best talent are now working in radio.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, the comedian said people working on the airwaves have ‘opinions’ and ‘aren’t afraid to be controversial’ in a way that reality stars are.
‘If you look around, all the best people in radio are far more interesting than the people in TV,’ he said.
