‘It was the dumbest thing I’ve ever done’: I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Paulini Curuenavuli reveals her regrets over 2017 bribery scandal

She was given a six-month suspended jail sentence in 2017 for bribing a government official to unlawfully obtain a driver’s licence.

And now, almost four years on, Paulini Curuenavuli has described her decision to break the law as ‘the dumbest thing thing in my life’.

The former Australian Idol star, 38, told Woman’s Day: ‘When I look back I just can’t believe how naive and stupid I was… not a day goes by where I don’t shake my head and think, “What were you thinking, girl?” I’m so sorry.’
