While Roxy Jacenko’s husband Oliver Curtis was spending time behind bars for conspiracy to commit insider trading, the 37-year-old PR queen was pictured locking lips with her millionaire ex-boyfriend, Nabil Gazal.

The sensational photos, taken in May, saw the married mother-of-two in an intimate embrace with the property developer at his luxury Sydney apartment at a post-dinner party.

Embracing in front of large glass windows located near a balcony, the pair appeared unfazed about hiding their PDA session from outside eyes.

Despite rekindling her romance with Oliver following the shock sighting, Roxy admitted to News.com.au in August that at the time she thought her marriage was over.

She said: ‘I’d spoken to a lawyer about divorce, and he (Oliver) knew that, I’d told him.’

In January, Amber Sherlock made international headlines thanks to her infamous ‘jacketgate’ row with reporter Julie Snook.

Amber became upset with Julie for wearing the same colour outfit as her as they presented live on Nine News.

The leaked footage showed her demanding Julie put on a jacket so the two women were not both wearing white on screen.

Speaking to her producer, Amber said: ‘I need Julie to put a jacket on because we’re all in white. I asked her before we came on… Julie you need to put a jacket on.’

Unimpressed: The leaked footage showed her demanding Julie put on a jacket so the two women were not both wearing white on screen (seen with a guest psychologist who was also in white)

Outrage: The incident sparked a massive wave of social media backlash, with several comments far too vulgar to print

Julie said she didn’t have time to change, but Amber wasn’t impressed.

‘Come on I told you two hours ago,’ Amber said, demanding her to change before going live.

Psychologist Ms Rea, who appeared as a guest during the segment, offered to find a jacket herself as she was also wearing white.

A guest on Burke’s Backyard claims Don made her wear a short dress and tried to push her onto a bed in her own home.

Julie Nielsen appeared on the iconic gardening show as an interior decorator, and said Burke’s demeanor changed when the cameras were off.

She claimed that from the moment he walked in the door he was constantly talking about sex, including group sex and anal sex.

‘I opened the door and he stepped inside and said ”g’day Jules I bet you’d shock a bad boy. Do you take it up the a**e or what?”‘ she told A Current Affair.

Grilled by Tracy Grimshaw on ACA, Burke grimaced when he heard what he allegedly said to Ms Nielsen, but firmly denied it.

‘Never. Never anything like that, nor would I,’ he said.
