Perhaps that last one was overshadowed by Nollsy’s robbery, but footage of judge Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson’s dressing-down is actually goddamn brutal. We fully encourage you to reacquaint yourself with that incident, and ask yourself how such bare-faced dickishness was broadcast.
But Dickson definitely didn’t apologise for saying she “should shed some pounds.”
“I cannot believe that it was 13 years ago that I said those 11 mundane words that sent the Australian media into meltdown,” he said.
“I was trying to be nice at the time, can you believe, but I’m glad that you’ve gone on to do such great things.
Yes. ‘Nice.’ But we digress.
“I’m a little jealous actually because at that time, those little cruel words that I said turned you and me into Australian reality TV’s power couple.“Think of what we could have achieved together. In fact, right now you’re doing The Bodyguard. It should be me carrying you in my arms through the rain as that song plays. You in the gold dress for old times sake, me wearing a hernia support because I’m not getting any younger.”“What I want to say is, I’m so proud of you girl, you go get’em”.
