Shannon Noll is no stranger to coming runner-up on an Australian reality show.
And fans were quick to troll country singer Shannon Noll after comedian Fiona O’Loughlin was named winner of ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’ on Monday night.
Taking to Twitter and Instagram, a number of fans made references to the ‘What About Me’ singer’s devastating loss to Guy Sebastian on Australian Idol in 2003.
