Glamorous AFL WAG and Australian actress Olympia Valance has revealed her plans to become fluent in Italian during Victoria's strict coronavirus lockdown.
Valance is in Melbourne under the city's Stage 4 restrictions, which only permit residents to leave home for work, shopping for essentials, exercise, and medical treatment or caregiving.
The model headed back to upscale inner-city suburb Port Melbourne with two friends to see it out while her partner, Essendon ruckman Tom Bellchambers, continues travelling to AFL hubs around the country.

After feeling as though she squandered the last lockdown, the 27-year-old is determined to make the most of her six weeks at home by learning a new language.
'In the last lockdown, when I was on the farm, I would wake up in the morning and the first thing I thought about was food and you would be thinking about food from the moment you woke up to the moment you went to bed,' she told the Herald Sun.
'This time I’m in Port Melbourne, I have a little bit more of a routine. And you should see how great my coffee skills are. I’m just trying to upskill so we’re not complete slobs when we finish this lockdown.'
The emergence of language apps, such as Duolingo, have made it easier for people to pick up a new dialect by learning in increments as little as five minutes per day.
But the former Neighbours star admitted she was diving right in.
'I’m going hardcore — I’ve got just a little more time on my hands,' she said.
