‘You never really know what the future holds… I try to focus on the present, but you never really know what the future holds. I’m definitely keeping my options open,’ she said, adding that she wouldn’t say no to Home and Away if an offer was made.

Schapelle also discussed the physical toll of rehearsals for Dancing with the Stars.
