Actress and comedian Nikki Osborne is relocating her family to Queensland amid Melbourne's poor 'quality of life'.
The 39-year-old I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star will arrive in Brisbane on Monday with husband Jamie Starr and their children, after receiving a border pass.
In an interview with The Courier Mail on Saturday, the mother-of-two described life in Victoria under stage four restrictions as 'depressing'.

Nikki, who was raised in Queensland and has lived in Victoria for 15 years, had her national comedy tour cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
'It's really depressing down here. All our friends' businesses are going bust and all my industry mates can't work... it's depressing watching your kids staring at a screen or a wall,' she told the publication.
Nikki and her family will spend two weeks in mandatory hotel quarantine, and from there she hopes to secure work on productions in Queensland.
Victoria just announced a record 59 new coronavirus deaths - its highest daily total during the pandemic - but the number of new cases is falling.
