However, she claims the driver put her on a freeway towards Balwyn North – the completely wrong direction – after she had made a series of wrong turns.

“We’re taking a route through Fitzroy and he takes a wrong turn and said, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry, I don’t know what happened, I did Made a few mistakes today ‘and I’ I like ‘It’s okay, it happens’ « , she explained in her Instagram story.

 » And then we landed on the freeway and half an hour had passed and we did were still in Fitzroy. ”
