FLEUR East made an entrance today when she landed in Australia for I’m A Celebrity – dressed in gold.
The former X Factor star hopped off the plane at Brisbane airport and dazzled a group of waiting paps after a 27 hour flight from London to the Gold Coast.
Fleur had a spring in her step and she couldn’t stop smiling as she pushed a trolley stacked with luggage.
The star wore a gold jacket and bottoms teamed with red nails, gorgeous curly hair and dark shades that hid her tired eyes.
Despite the long journey, Fleur was a bundle of energy and whizzed through the airport with her personalised Lous Vuitton cabin bag and a larger black case in tow.
Her siting comes after The Sun revealed she had won a place in the prestigious line up of one of the biggest shows on telly.

Fleur, who lost out to Ben Heanow in the final of The X Factor in 2014, split from her record company Syco last year.
A jungle insider said before her appearance: “Fleur was one of the most loved X Factor contestants in recent years, so she is bound to be a hit with audiences.
“She’s part of the ITV family.
“The relationship is already there and they are just negotiating a deal at the moment.
“Fleur really wants to try to relaunch her music career in early 2019, so she feels like this is a great way to get her name back out there again.
“She knows she has been out of the spotlight for a while but wants people to see who she really is on the show.”
Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway, Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Inbetweeners star Emily Atack are also believed to be taking part in the new series.

Fleur got to No3 in the charts with her catchy song Sax in 2015 but failed to make a similar splash with her debut album Love, Sax And Flashbacks.
Last October she parted ways with Simon’s record label and has not released any music since, despite insisting she wanted to continue singing.
Speaking last month about the prospect of appearing on another reality show, she admitted: “I’ve been approached by a few shows like Strictly and I’m A Celeb, but it’s never quite the right time. We’ll have to see if they come knocking again. I would like to do one at some point, if it was right.”
