‘I’m a Celeb’: TV Presenter Bianca Hunt Is In It to Win It

I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here 2023 cast Bianca Hunt

It’s back, baby! That’s right, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is back for Season 9, and as usual, it’s already bringing the laughs and chaos we’ve come to love and expect.

After two seasons of filming in northern New South Wales due to COVID, the borders are open once again, which means I’m a Celeb is back in South Africa, and coming to us live from the jungle.

Hosts Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown are also back, and this season, the premise is simple: make it fun, make it funny, make it a good time for all involved — well, except the celebs, maybe. Having snakes dumped on you or being challenged to ingest a warthog testicle doesn’t sound like much fun to us, to be honest, but look, they knew what they were getting themselves into, right?!

But if you’ve tuned in for all the fun and found yourself thinking “sorry, who is that?” — you’re not alone. Luckily, we’ve got all the goss on who these celebs are, what they’re known for, where you’ve seen them before, and what charity they’re competing for.

One of the celebs who’s made her way to the jungle for the chance to take out the win this season is television presenter Bianca Hunt, who’s competing for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

What Is the Indigenous Literacy Foundation?

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) aims to improve literacy rates and promote a love of reading in remote Indigenous communities in Australia.

Founded in 2004, the ILF works with Indigenous communities, schools, and libraries. Their aim? To provide culturally appropriate books and literacy resources to children and families. They fund and deliver programs that focus on language and literacy development, tailored to the specific needs of each community.

The ILF also supports the development and publication of Indigenous stories. Through this, they are able to support Indigenous culture and languages, while also promoting literacy skills.

Why Did Bianca Choose the Indigenous Literacy Foundation?

“Education is the reason I’m able to do what I do, and it’s always been a big focus for me,” Bianca said. “So, my charity is the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. They focus on ensuring that kids, especially in rural and regional and remote areas get access to books in order to develop their understanding, their literacy [and] their education.

“If you educate one person, it educates a community.”
