1. Australian comedian Fiona O’Loughlin calls Bindi Irwin “a freak”.

In today’s edition of “which Australian celebrities hate each other for no apparent reason” we bring you a bizarre reignited feud between Fiona O’Loughlin and… Bindi Irwin.

Only now, Fiona’s targeting the entire Irwin family.

Let us explain.

Back in 2010, Fiona O’Loughlin called a then 11-year-old Bindi a “freak” on national television. As you do.

But speaking on a recent episode of comedy podcast The Little Dum Dum Club, she says she stands by her comments about the newly-engaged conservationist.

“You abused Bindi Irwin on an old episode of Spicks and Specks,” one of the podcast hosts said in reference to the statements Fiona made on the canned ABC quiz show nine years ago.

During the episode she called Bindi “a bit creepy” and a “freak show,” before adding that she “needed a slap in the face”.

“Did I? Did I abuse her?” Fiona responded, adding, “I said she was a freak, which she is, so kill me.”

“She’s 21 or something now, she can cop it,” one of the podcast hosts chimed in.

The comedian then went on to say that Bindi’s mum, Terri, 56, 15-year-old brother Bob and late father, Steve were all a bit “weird”, suggesting that the Crocodile Hunter himself was on the Autism spectrum.

“Basically I was talking about that family [the Irwins]. You know, it’s weird. Let’s call a spade a spade. Steve Irwin had Asperger’s. You don’t run around the world talking like that without being bonkers. ‘Fun’ bonkers, but bonkers,” she said.

2. Gary Mehigan wants to set the record straight on ‘greedy Masterchef judges’ rumour.

Despite countless rumours surrounding their shock departure from the judging panel of Masterchef, Gary Mehigan is adamant he, George Calombaris and Matt Preston did not opt to leave because they were denied a pay rise.

Instead, he says, it was the specifics of the contract they were required to sign that led them to the decision.

In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, Gary said Channel 10 wanted them to commit to the show until 2020, which would mean they would be unable to pursue other projects.

Namely, their idea to form their own production company, GaryGeorge&Matt, which would potentially lead to an empire of “books, podcasts, cooking festivals [and] a new TV series.”

“All the financial terms had been agreed; it was purely about the length of the new contract. We wanted to keep making MasterChef, but we needed space to stretch our legs and do our own thing,” he explained.

A likely story.
