MAFS bride turned influencer Martha Kalifatidis is one of the A-list stars set to appear on the new season of Celebrity Apprentice Australia.

The former makeup artist gave fans a cheeky glimpse on set of the show this week, as well as a sneak peek at some of her other high profile co-stars – and many fans might be surprised at the less-than-glamorous surroundings.

In a series of videos uploaded to her Instagram stories, Martha showed her fellow castmates, including The Block star Shaynna Blaze and Ninja Warrior Australia athlete Olivia Viviant, being driven to one of their challenges on the show.

The group were being driven in a large mini van, before later filming on a double decker bus in the hot sun.

“Since the whole cast has been revealed I will show you a few of us who are travelling today,” Martha said in her video.

Later filming herself on the double decker bus, along with the several camera crew staffers filming the show, she revealed: “Alright I thought you guys would like to see this, so this is what reality TV looks like.”

The stars appeared to have dressed themselves and done their own hair and makeup, with very few crew and production staff visible in the clip.

The new season of Celebrity Apprentice Australia will feature other high profile stars include radio presenter Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli, Michelle Bridges, fashion designer Camilla Franks and activewear mogul Lorna Jane.

Since her time on Married At First Sight last year, Martha and her boyfriend Michael Brunelli, who are one of the program’s only successful remaining couples, have carved out careers for themselves as Instagram influencers.

Michael has also launched his own online fitness business, called TruFit

Last week, she revealed she “lost it” when KIIS FM radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson commented on one of her recent Instagram photos.

Martha stunned fans when she posted a killer bikini pic of herself to her 350,000 Instagram followers, with the sexy snap garnering thousands of likes and hundreds of comments.

“On your screens n’ in your dreams 😴,” Martha cheekily captioned the post.

But one of those hundreds of commenters was none other than Jackie, who posted several fire emojis on the photo.

Turns out Martha is a huge fan of Jackie O – and completely lost it once she realised the 45-year-old entertainment industry veteran had commented on her post.

Martha’s boyfriend Michael shared a candid video of her reading the comment in bed, with the caption, “When @jackieo_official comments on your photo.”

The influencer re-shared the clip to her own Instagram stories, explaining she is “low key obsessed with Jackie O”.

Martha has previously met Jackie IRL, when she acted as a co-host on Kyle and Jackie O’s breakfast show last month.
