After numerous reports surfaced today that Schapelle Corby is set to appear on the UK’s celebrity version of Big Brother, her sister Mercedes has launched a bitter attack on the media.
Taking to Instagram, Mercedes called rumours - which originated from The Sunday Telegraph - that the newly released Schapelle was set to be marketed by UK producers as Australia’s most famous drug smuggler ‘a load of crap’.
‘Haha what a load of crap this is.. apparently Schapelle has signed a deal and is applying for her visa to uk. It's just BS reporting again,’ she captioned a screenshot of the report from earlier on today.
'Who are these made up sources close to the family I wonder spinning all these quotes?? Mum makes the best hot tomato sauce lets call this sauce dumbmato! @schapelle.corby had to laugh.'
Schapelle also slammed the claims, commenting under the post: ‘Weird hey @mercedescorby. First I’ve heard of it. Just googled it. False news’.
