Australia’s love affair with reality TV is nothing new.
A little while after the glory days of Big Brother and long before we were watching strangers get nervous about a pretend wedding on Married At First Sight, there was a wonderful period of now semi-forgotten reality shows like The Hot House, There's Something About Miriam and Australian Princess.
Today, we’re looking at Australian Princess, the show which saw etiquette experts attempt to transform a dozen young 'ordinary' Aussie women into sophisticated ladies fit to handle life as a royal.
Australia watched on week after week until finally Ally Mansell was crowned the winner, taking home a tiara and the opportunity to be escorted to a gala ball by a real life Prince Charming in the United Kingdom.
So where is she now?
Well, it turns out Ally is an artist, a traveller, and still appears on our screens as a presenter on the kids program Get Arty!
