Drug smuggler Schapelle Corby seen in hotel quarantine after leaving SAS reality show early

She did her time in a Balinese prison after being caught trying to smuggle marijuana into Indonesia in 2004.

And Schapelle Corby enjoyed a far more luxurious type of lockup as she self-isolated at a hotel quarantine in Brisbane on Saturday. 

The 43-year-old is currently staying at Rydges Southbank after leaving Channel Seven’s SAS Australia in New South Wales early, following allegations that she was ‘iced out’ by other contestants.

Clad in a cropped navy T-shirt and leopard-print underwear, Schapelle was spotted stretching on the balcony.

With her raven hair pulled back into a ponytail, the convicted drug traficker leaned against the balcony railings and soaked up the sunny vista. 

Media reports suggest Corby left SAS Australia after the other contestants failed to warm to her. 

‘Some of the more high-profile celebs were fuming,’ an inside source told Woman’s Day, claiming many of the stars didn’t want to ‘associate with her’.

It has also been alleged that Sydney PR queen Roxy Jacenko was particularly unhappy the former Bali inmate was taking part.

‘When [Roxy] learnt Schapelle was going on the series, she was not impressed,’ New Idea has claimed. 

Their mystery source added: ‘Roxy wanted to be the alpha female, but Schapelle immediately stole her thunder.’    

Ex rugby player and Bachelor Star Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins and cricket WAG Candice Warner will all feature on the show alongside PR Queen Roxy.  

While some Aussies may find hotel quarantine unbearable, Corby is used to being detained after spending almost ten years behind bars in Indonesia.

She was was sent to Bali’s Kerokoban prison after being caught trying to smuggle 4kg of marijuana into Indonesia in her boogie board bag in 2004.

Since returning home in 2017 she has released a pop song, written a tell-all autobiography and become an unlikely Instagram sensation.

Her latest endeavour involved participating in Channel Seven’s reality show SAS Australia.

The program puts stars through their paces as they attempt to pass the selection process to join the Australian Army’s elite Special Air Service. 

Celebs were reportedly paid $150,000 for the two-week production, which was filmed in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales.
