When Tanya Hennessy was in the South African jungle, covered in dirt, eating cockroaches and showering in front of cameras, she really didn't think 2020 could go anywhere but up.
Eight months later, that may have been a highlight.
Not long after returning to Australia from I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! this whole 'global pandemic' thing really kicked off and within weeks, she was in lockdown with the rest of us.

Perhaps the greatest metaphor for 2020 came the moment Mamamia connected with Tanya on the phone this week: She'd just dropped hot porridge on herself, so answered questions while standing with her hand in her freezer.
"I’ve got my hand in the freezer like a ridiculous human being, in pyjamas," she jokes.
Does anything symbolise this year better?
Ignoring the burned hand for a moment, Tanya says this year and all that has come with it has been quite good for her.
