Appearing on Channel 10’s breakfast program, Studio 10 on Wednesday the 30th of October, Schapelle opened up about mental illness in prison, her new book, and how she felt looking back at videos of herself from the ordeal.

Despite initially asking the 42-year-old to stay on after the break, Kerri Anne didn’t wait very long before putting an end to their conversation.

At one point, Schapelle was discussing her relationship with Ben Panangian when Kerri Anne interrupted her.

“Schapelle, I agreed with your people, one minute only, because you were only asked to do six minutes,” Kerri Anne said.

“So I have to say, we should absolutely let Schapelle go.”

Ahead of her first television interview on Channel 10’s breakfast program Studio 10 on Wednesday, the network said nothing will be “off-limits” during the candid conversation.

According to TV Blackbox, a network insider revealed that Schapelle’s appearance on the show came without a fee, as it is part of a promotional tour for her new book.

Schapelle apparently chose the TV show on the advice of her sister Mercedes.

Channel 10’s other news program, The Project, was reportedly also keen to have Schapelle on the show, but she apparently opted for the breakfast show instead.

Her appearance comes after her first official radio interview on the Kyle and Jackie O show on KIIS FM.

During the radio interview, Schapelle made several strange revelations about her first observations when returning to Australia.

“There was a lot of plastic. Plastic in the supermarkets,” Schapelle said in a soft, breathy voice.

Schapelle revealed that she now uses a Samsung, a far cry from the Nokia phone she had in Indonesia.

Jackie O Henderson asked her about using a smartphone and how it changed the world over the past decade.

“I thought, with Google, I felt like…God, it would suck to be the heir of Funk and Wagnall,” she said of the publishing company that produces encyclopaedias.

“And also Kodak,” she said.
