‘I can’t believe it Sonia,’ the emotional winner told host Sonia Kruger after winning.
‘Thank you to everyone that voted for me and I hope I did you all proud,’ she added with tears in her eyes.
Speaking to WHO magazine this week, Reggie said that she’s currently writing her memoir and hoping to carve out a career in TV and radio.
‘Nineteen years ago I said I was going to write a book and I didn’t do it, so now is the time!’ she gushed.
‘I procrastinated and now I’m glad I have, because there is so much more to tell,’ she continued.
‘I’d also love to do something on radio, or do another TV show like Travel Guides or Gogglebox. I’d be hilarious!’

Reggie won the third season of Big Brother Australia in 2003 and took home $250,000.
However, she recently revealed she no longer has any of the prize money left from her triumphant season.
The mother of two made the admission that her paycheck was ‘all gone’ during an interview with The Daily Telegraph in May.

‘I’ve got to do this for my kids,’ said Reggie, who is mother to daughter Mia, 15, and son Lucas, 12.

In 2016, she revealed that most taxi drivers won’t pick her up because she isn’t travelling far enough, even though she’s unable to drive herself due to her vision impairment.
‘Even when you’re getting a taxi – I’ve had a few say, “You’re only going up the road, why can’t you walk?” Things like that upset me,’ she told the Daily Edition.
She also admitted that she struggles to get around with her walking cane for assistance.
‘Sometimes when I forget to take my cane to the shops and I bang into people… they look at me because I’m so young and just think I’m being rude.’
