Celebrity Apprentice cast accused of calling the paparazzi during filming: ‘How would they know we’re out in the western suburbs?’
The Celebrity Apprentice is one of the most star-studded reality shows on TV.
So it’s no surprise that the celebrity cast attract attention and paparazzi wherever they go.
However, according to a production insider, some of the show’s stars may have tipped off the paps themselves during filming.

Warner Bros. International’s Head of Entertainment Caroline Swift told TV Tonight that she suspected cast members of calling the paps while filming the 2021 season.
‘In series one, I reckon we had a couple of the celebs alerting some of the paps,’ she said.
‘Some of the places they turned up to …how would they know we’re out in this random place in the western suburbs?’ she continued.
‘With this season our celebrities were really well behaved. I just don’t think they told anyone,’ she said, before adding: ‘I kind of wish they had! Any publicity is good publicity!’

The last season of The Celebrity Apprentice featured plenty of star power thanks to the likes of designer Camilla Franks, pop duo The Veronicas, personal trainer Michelle Bridges, and Married At First Sight’s Martha Kalifatidis.
The Block judge and interior designer Shaynna Blaze ended up winning the season.
This year’s cast is even more impressive thanks to actors Jodi Gordon and Vince Colosimo, songstress Samantha Jade, rugby legend Benji Marshall, Real Housewives of Melbourne’s Gamble Breaux and motivational speaker Turia Pitt.

Social Media star Carla from Bankstown will also join the motley crew, along with comedian Jean Kitson and international model Jarrod Scott.
In a new trailer for the series, Gamble is seen getting up to all types of mischief with Lord Allan Sugar flummoxed by her outrageous behaviour.
In one scene, Gamble, 49, merrily chases furniture careening down a hill in a ’60s inspired shift dress.

In another, the blonde bombshell slips into Kath Day-Knight drag, the iconic character from Kath & Kim made famous by Jane Turner, with the resemblance uncanny.
At one stage it appears too much for Lord Sugar to bear when he labels the loveable larrikin a ‘hot mess’.
‘She needs to focus,’ he says in the colourful footage, clearly shocked by her antics.
