The Luke Bradnam Show trick paparazzi with Schapelle decoy
Australian media is in a state of hysteria after the return of one of our most infamous identities, Schapelle Corby.
Triple M Brisbane’s The Luke Bradnam Show with Libby Tricket & Dobbo had a little fun with the situation after the convicted drug smuggler arrived back in the country on Sunday morning.
It’s rumoured that Corby is shacked up inside Brisbane’s Sofitel Hotel, just a few minutes away from the Triple M studio.
Decked out in sunnies and Corby’s signature shawl draped over her head, content coordinator Danielle Westgate managed to fool the media into thinking she was the real Schappelle, making her way out of the hotel and straight into a strategically placed getaway car.
“We were scoping out the sitch and there was no one paying attention to us,” Westgate recalled. “Work experience James came over, put his arm around me, and we walked very purposefully out of the Sofitel.”
“The media bought it!” Bradnam cheered after the stunt. “There’s already been a report from one of the TV networks thinking that they got Schapelle Corby.”
