Roxy Jacenko and her two young children are facing a very different Christmas this year.
There will be no tree, no big family celebration, no Dad at the dinner table.
The PR mogul’s husband, Oliver Curtis, was jailed for two years in June for insider trading, just two weeks before she was diagnosed with breast cancer – a combination that made for a “tumultuous” 2016.
“My mum said to me the other day, ‘I think I’m going to go and get a Christmas tree.’ And I said, ‘You can’t, because I told Pixie and Hunter their father would be home for Christmas’,” Jacenko told Who.
“It was so far away then… Now, here we are.”
Instead of the usual festive fanfare, the 25th will consist of a low-key lunch at a friend’s house then a trip to Hawaii on Boxing Day. (Post continues after gallery.)
