Bianca Hunt looking bold in Bonds, and set to star in new show

Emma Ruben -

The last time we saw her on our screens, she was clothed in camouflage and battling it out in the South African jungle.

Now, a few months later, the Kamilaroi, Barkindji, Ballardong and Whadjuk 'I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here' contestant wants people to know she has a full media repertoire.

"I think sometimes the only way that I can exist in Australian media is by talking on First Nations topics, which can be a bit disappointing," she said.

"I have so many things I can discuss and I think sometimes, a lot of the times, you get pigeonholed when you're in these spaces to only address one thing when we've got so many other facets to ourselves."

And it's why Hunt is so impactful in the recent Bonds Bloody Comfy Period Undies campaign.

Hunt said it was a fun campaign to shoot but also an important conversation to which she wanted to add her voice.

"I wanted to make sure that I was part of a conversation around talking to period health and making sure our young people are confident when that time does come," she said.

"And making sure that they feel safe to have those conversations because I know myself growing up I didn't talk about it a lot.

"No matter what, when I was going to be on that campaign I knew it would still be a big moment especially for young Blak kids to be able to see themselves on a campaign."

Fans of the presenter will be able to catch her on their screens very soon as she is starring in the upcoming season of Going Places with Ernie Dingo.

Hunt finished filming for the season a year and a half ago and is raring for others to see it.

"I watched my first episode and I will be watching the rest of my stories in the next few days, but I'm really stoked with the story," she said.

"There's three of us that will be in each episode and I'm one of the first stories that gets to be put out so I'm so excited."

Going Places with Ernie Dingo Season 5 will premiere July 8.
