‘Someone hates you!’ Jackie ‘O’ Henderson says Channel 10 are ‘trolling her’ by using a photo of her wearing a ‘Miss Piggy dress’ as her trailer image on The Masked Singer
She begged Ten’s producers to remove ‘unflattering shots’ of her on an episode of The Masked Singer last year, after binge-eating seaweed snacks caused her weight to balloon overnight.
And on Tuesday, Jackie ‘O’ Henderson claimed the network are ‘trolling her’ this season by hanging an image of her wearing the self-proclaimed ‘Miss Piggy dress’ on the door of her trailer.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, the 46-year-old laughed: ‘Honestly… they put pictures of the person on the trailer – and they chose that one.’

‘Of all the pictures they could have put up, they put the Miss Piggy dress!’ she mused, referring to the popular Muppets puppet. ‘Someone is trolling me there.’
‘Someone hates you! That is bad. That is real bad,’ her co-host Kyle Sandilands added.
‘We wouldn’t do that! We would never point to the fact that Jackie looked like Miss Piggy, ever.’
The discussion emerged when Jackie revealed she is able to keep all of the expensive gowns she wears each season, and has a wardrobe of clothes she ‘never wears’.
A producer then asked if she would give the ‘seaweed snack dress another go’, referring to the bright pink dress she wore during an episode in August 2020.

She explained on The Kyle and Jackie O Show at the time that she gained five kilograms in less than 24 hours from binge eating a supposedly ‘healthy’ snack – and ‘looked very bloated’ on camera as a result.
The mother of one said she arrived on set to discover her dress didn’t fit her anymore and her breasts had grown by ‘two cup sizes’.
This was because she was experiencing water retention and bloating due to having eaten 80 seaweed snacks backstage the previous night.
Jackie said she was convinced the snacks – which are high in salt but widely considered a health food – had caused her body to expand overnight.
‘The next day, you wouldn’t believe it, the water retention in my body, I reckon made me put on five kilograms overnight,’ she said on air.

Unfortunately, it was too late for a costume change, so Jackie had to squeeze into her dress and felt uncomfortable throughout the taping.
Jackie said her co-stars took notice of her bloated appearance, but most of the people on set were too polite to mention it.
She later requested to be edited out of the episode as much as possible, and the production team agreed to minimise her appearances.
‘I said, “If you could just find some flattering shots maybe, that would be great,”‘ Jackie explained.
‘Apparently there must not have been many, because I think I was barely seen on the show last night!’
