‘It is obviously all federations have problems, look at the FIFA Federation that was all corrupt and there are many things inside Tennis Australia that are also corrupt that people don’t know which I am yet to speak about maybe in the coming future that will probably be there,’ he told the publication. 

Despite him leaping at the chance to throw the organisation under the bus, the future I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! contestant remains set on representing the county again in the near future. 

‘It is going to take some effort from them and me as well. I for sure want to be back there representing my country and winning these matches for Australia. Obviously I have had a few problems with the Federation, so it is obviously going to take some time to change and I hope we can change in the next year or so.’
