Kimberley Leaves The Jungle
Davies (Annalise Hartman) has become the fourth celebrity
to leave the jungle in this year’s fifth series of I’m
A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, following the forced
departure of EastEnders’ Elaine Lordan, and the evictions
of comedian Tommy Cannon and wine buff Jilly Goolden. Her
first week as a contestant was decidedly uneventful, voted
by the public to take part in one of the early bush tucker
trials, The Ant (and Dec) Farm, in which she showed resilience,
then gave up. Other than that, Kimberley was pushed into the
background by the more domineering personalities of others,
including Carol Thatcher and David Dickinson. As the second
week began, Kimberley, along with Emmerdale star Sheree
Murphy, took part in a second trial, Hell-O-Drop. An awkward
landing led to her spending Monday night in hospital with
a suspected cracked rib. Today, she returned to camp for a
few hours before deciding to leave for good.
A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Kimberley
Davies (Annalise Hartman) has spent an evening out of
camp after injuring herself during the bush tucker trial,
Hell-O-Drop. The trial involved jumping from a helicopter
into a marked area of a lake, but during her second jump,
an awkward landing by Kimberley led to her being taken to
hospital with a suspected cracked rib. Her time in hospital
meant that she was absent during the second eviction from
camp and her phone line was closed, but it currently looks
like she will rejoin the group later today.
Natalie's Health Scare
Daily Telegraph reports that Natalie Bassingthwaighte
(Izzy Hoyland) collapsed on set in the middle of last week.
Although she was taken to hospital after her collapse on Wednesday,
she was given a clean bill of health and after taking Thursday
off work (her first sick day in the past two years) she was
back filming by Friday. Not only has Natalie been completing
a hectic schedule as Izzy, she’s also been performing gigs
with her band, Rogue Traders and today will front Network
Ten’s summer launch.

role, with a part in television series, Prison Break.

work as the big break I've been looking for."

Kimberley In The Jungle
year, it was rumoured that Anne Charleston (Madge Bishop)
would be in the jungle, but it never came to anything. This
year, however, another former Neighbours star has made
the final line-up, with Kimberley Davies (Annalise
Hartman) announced as one of the 10 contestants on this year's
series of the UK's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.
Kimberley recently made a two-week return to Erinsborough
for the 20th Anniversary celebrations and has recently moved
to Sydney, so she won't have as far to travel as the rest
of the, mainly British, contestants. The series kicks off
on ITV1 on Sunday 20th November at 9pm.
BBC Christmas Break
in the UK will be pleased to hear that, rather than the traditional
two-week Christmas break this year, the BBC will only
be taking Neighbours out of the schedule for two days.
Only Monday 26th December and Monday 2nd January will see
Neighbours replaced, with the programme currently planned
to be shown as normal from Tuesday 27th to Friday 30th December.
Meanwhile, Australian fans can see this year's season finale,
and the beginning of their summer break, on Friday December
to Marc Harris.
Connor Trial Update
Connor’s (Joe Scully) unfair dismissal trial has continued
with former screen wife Janet Andrewartha (Lyn Scully)
giving evidence. She told the court that she was forced to
take time off work, suffering from a stress-related facial
tic, following a gruelling few days working alongside Shane.
Young Neighbours actress Marisa Siketa (Summer
Hoyland) was also mentioned in proceedings when wardrobe stand-by
Yolande Robertson testified that Shane had yelled at
her when he felt that she should have been prompting other
actors, rather than waiting off-set. Shane was described by
her as being “very aggressive”.
hearing has now been adjourned and a verdict is expected within
the next few weeks.
