Miguel Maestre - ‘I'm An Open Book'
The jungle king opens up on life, love and the return of ‘the living room’

He may be television royalty after being crowned king of the jungle on I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! in February – but it’s a completely down to earth Miguel Maestre who calls WHO for an animated chat. The conversation is ahead of the return of The Living Room, the Channel Ten show he’s co-hosted alongside Amanda Keller, Barry Du Bois and his best friend ‘Gringo’ – aka Dr Chris Brown – since 2012.

“We’re back, baby,” Maestre, 40, laughs. “I can’t wait for everyone to see the show again.”

How are you, your highness! It’s been quite a crazy year.

Absolutely. When I was in the jungle the bushfires were at their worst but we were kind of oblivious to that. So it was a shock to come home and find out how bad they were. Then I came out of the jungle bubble, arrived home and moved into the isolation bubble. It’s been a weird time. But I’ve also enjoyed the time with my family, especially after being away for so long in the jungle. Isolation has been like flat sharing with my three favourite people in the world.
