"People are like, 'Why are you not at Seb's place?' I was there last week but got a phone call that I had to be in Sydney for work. So I left South Australia. I'm now in quarantine. I have to do my work thing and then I'll have to be in quarantine again [when I go back to Adelaide]," the retail manager said.
"That's just life. Coronavirus puts a lot of stress on a lot of different aspects. Yeah, it's hard. Obviously you have everything to do with MAFS and a new relationship, and then you have to go back and forth. It's hard."
She added: "Seb was moving to Sydney, but that's a lot to get organised and doesn't happen overnight. He is based in South Australia. I thought I'd be based in Adelaide for the time being but my work stuff is in New South Wales. Coronavirus has [had] a huge effect on a lot of people."
While she didn't specify what "work" is requiring her to remain and self isolate in Sydney, word has spread she's scored a new TV gig with Channel Nine. New Idea insiders say the former jewellery store manager— who found love on the dating experiment after a disastrous first attempt— has been spotted lingering around their studios.
"She's been going to Nine Studios regularly over the last few weeks to film with them," a spy told the outlet.
The source also revealed Lizzie— who is said to have been paid $100, 000 for her four-week appearance on MAFS— may have a secret project in the works, saying: "She films Talking Married first and then stays back to film her other project. She's desperate to become some sort of presenter with them."
Interestingly, her former best friend and co-star, Cyrell Paule, saw this coming from a mile away, telling WHO she agreed to return to the series in exchange for future work with the network.
"She always told me that at the end of MAFS, she wanted a potential gig with Channel Nine. It has worked in her favour and that's why she's returning. Seb wants a career with Nine and so does Elizabeth, so they plan to stick it out, get as much air time as they can and then be the next Jules and Cam."
The new mum continued: "I also hear Seb is an aspiring actor so he is going to want as much air time. He wants to show Australia that he is doting on her. I completely agree that she's fake and there for more followers.
While rumours have long been rife she's desperate to remain in the public eye, her MAFS co-star Mishel Karen believes she returned for all the wrong reasons.
"She's fake," she told WHO of Lizzie last month. "She was in it for fame. Like, no one would ever endure this twice. If you had sanity, would you go through the whole experiment as we went through again?" she asked her television husband, Steve Burley. "She wants to be Insta famous, she wants an extra 150 not 150, 000 followers."
"She didn't do it like us. She did it in first-class while we did it in third class... No, the luggage area of the plane," the Brisbane based school teacher continued, adding every request Lizzie made BTS was always met with the word "yes".
