Celeb news: Magda Szubanski signs $1.25 million Jenny Craig deal to save her life

Professionally hilarious woman Magda Szubanksi has reportedly just signed another Jenny Craig contract – this time to protect her fragile health.

Apparently the new deal will pop a cool $1.25 million in Szubanski’s bank account. The Kath and Kim actress will be the face and body of a new weight loss campaign for the same company that helped her  drop 35kg between 2009 and 2011.

It comes after she famously walked away from her 2010 contract, when her goal was to lose 40 kilos but she was shamed for putting 12kg back on.

Her health improved drastically with the weight loss last time, so she’s going back despite the differences she’s had with the company before.

This is what Magda said last time she publicly committed to a weight loss mission: “The tears were partly because I realised how out of control I was, and I knew people were worried about me — I was worried about myself — but also because I was starting to see there was hope. I think people could see I really was in a lot of strife and in a really bad way.”
