Big Brother star Tully Smyth reveals she’s at ‘breaking point’ due to the cancellation of her Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Queensland holiday plans amid coronavirus lockdowns
Big Brother star Tully Smyth has revealed she is at ‘breaking point’ after recent coronavirus lockdowns have impacted her ability to see loved ones.
The former reality star took to Instagram on Sunday looking downcast as she told her followers how she was feeling.
‘Honestly, I don’t think I can handle much more. Christmas plans with the family in Sydney, cancelled. Worst NYE of my life,’ she began.

‘Queensland holiday this week now also cancelled. Absolutely at my breaking point,’ she continued, hiding her face from view.
Tully then showed a photo of her tear-stained face as she told her followers she has been unable to shower because of how upset she’s become.
‘This has been me for the last three days. I’ve managed one shower. A reminder that everybody is fighting a battle you know nothing about.’

She continued: ‘Social media is 90 per cent smoke and mirrors. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies and perfectly curated holiday photos.’
Tully went on to add that it was an important reminder that Instagram isn’t always reflective of reality.
The podcast host was no doubt hit with coronavirus travel restrictions when NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian put the Northern Beaches in lockdown over the festive period.

Part of the Northern Beaches remains in lockdown, while in Greater Sydney anew wave of restrictions is affecting travel to a number of Australian states.
Tully rose to fame on Big Brother in 2013, where she started a romance with Anthony Drew while she was in a relationship with girlfriend Tahlia Farrant.
The pair continued to date following the show, but the romance was short-lived, with the couple splitting in January 2014.
The truth: In November, Anthony and Tully sat down together on her podcast Too Much Tully to reveal what really happened with their break-up after starring on Big Brother
Anthony and Tully reunited on her podcast Too Much Tully in November, and finally revealed what happened following their exit from the show.
Tully explained that their ‘sudden fame’ and the additional ‘problems’ of her break up with Thalia affected their relationship.
‘I was like how can you possibly start something new when you’re trying to deal with the old, that was a constant problem,’ she said.

But at the end of the day, she admits that Anthony wasn’t as invested in the relationship as she was, saying: ‘I moved to Melbourne and I was all in, and he wasn’t.’ Anthony admitted: ‘I was a bit of a prick.’
Last year, Tully broke down in tears while discussing her infamous affair scandal with Anthony on Big Brother.
Speaking on the Shameless podcast, Tully confessed that she still regrets what happened and the ‘hurt’ she caused other people.
Tully also admitted she felt pressure to keep her and Anthony’s relationship going after the show ended due to the backlash she faced.
