Schapelle Corby, 43, looks very youthful as returns to Instagram


She’s the convicted drug smuggler who reinvented herself as a reality TV star after being released from Bali’s most notorious prison.

And Schapelle Corby looked remarkably youthful on Tuesday as she returned to Instagram for the first time in almost a month.

The SAS Australia star, 43, showed off her ageless complexion as she posed with two friends in the selfie, sparking rumours she may have recently had a Botox top-up.

The past 12 months has been a happy time for the Queenslander, who took part on last year’s season of SAS Australia.

In August last year, Schapelle looked very different during an interview on Sunrise compared to her days locked up in Bali’s Kerobokan Prison.

At the time, she looked every inch the budding reality star – sporting a full face of makeup, including dewy pink blush, rose-coloured lipstick and false lashes.

Her eyebrows appeared noticeably fluffier than they were in the early 2000s, while her hair was more voluminous thanks to a set of perfectly curled extensions. 

Schapelle, who has denied rumours of cosmetic work such as Botox and fillers, also showed off her age-defying complexion, smooth forehead and plump lips.

That same day, the former drug mule later appeared on The Morning Show, wearing a striking red frock that offered a glimpse of her cleavage.

The interview also highlighted the impressive length of Schapelle’s hair extensions, which tumble well past her shoulders.

Beverly Hills surgeon Dr. Randal Haworth previously told Daily Mail Australia that Schapelle may have invested in ‘non-invasive work’ to achieve her ageless looks.

‘It is not hard to imagine that a stint in an Indonesian prison would be a less than welcome holiday, so it is understandable that anyone would want a fresh start after that,’ he said in June 2018. ‘It seems as if Ms Corby is no exception to that rule.’

Dr. Haworth was of the opinion Schapelle had ‘undergone subtle facial rejuvenation’.

‘I don’t believe she underwent any plastic surgery per se,’ he claimed. ‘But she most likely had non-invasive work to achieve her current look.’

Earlier in 2018, Schapelle had denied having Botox injections or fillers.

She told Woman’s Day in March that year: ‘No fillers, no Botox. I just use Snapchat and Instagram filters! I look at a photo of me and think, “Gee, that’s ugly,” and then I put a filter on it and think, “Actually, it’s pretty good!”

‘I do get a lot of people commenting saying things like, “Oh, you’ve had Botox,” and I say to myself, “Oh, shut up. You’re young, you know how it works, you know that’s just all the good filters!”

‘I don’t think young people should get Botox or fillers.’ 

In addition to SAS Australia, Schapelle enjoyed a brief stint on Dancing with the Stars Reboot as a ‘wildcard’ contestant .
