Toni Pearen, the former host of Australia’s funniest home videos, has confessed emotionally about why she joined the last season of I’m A Celebrity … get me out of here!
Speaking in front of the camera in a heartfelt piece ahead of her jungle debut on Sunday, the 47-year-old fought back tears as she admitted the show offered more than just airtime.
Toni, who stepped out of the spotlight in 2008 to focus on becoming a mom, said the show will no doubt challenge her fears, but it will also help her rediscover herself. .

« I took care of kids and raised a family and felt like I lost sight of who I am as a person so I hope to find them again, » she said tearfully.
Despite her initial reservations about going on the show, Toni has admitted that she felt compelled to participate – regardless of her aversion to snakes, spiders and rats.
« There must have been something on the back of my mind that I wanted this type of challenge. Obviously something was burning in me, ”Toni said to BINGE Guide beforehand.
After deciding to attend, the former E Street star said her husband Will Osmond was more than happy to take the reins and take care of their two children: son Lucky, 11, and daughter Ever (8th).
« I’ve been doing a lot of full-time bumbling while he’s at work and he was really happy to have this great time with the kids, » she said.
Toni went on to say that while it can be difficult to find perfect work opportunities to complement family life, I am a celebrity, a « gift from the jungle » that came at the right time.
Toni said while it can be difficult to find perfect work opportunities to complement family life, I was in some ways a celebrity, a « gift from the jungle » that came at the right time.
« I think with what happened this year it’s a case when an opportunity arises, just say ‘yes’ because you don’t know what’s around the corner, » she added.
In her play in front of the camera on Sunday, the 48-year-old confessed, like many of the roommates, that crawling animals and heights will be a challenge – but she hopes they will lead to a great result.
« I hope this gives me some courage to grab a tent and take my kids out camping because I know this is one of the things on their wish list and I’ve never been brave enough to go it alone. « .
« I hope it makes me a wild mom and gets the kids camping, » she added.
