The Nine Network is said to be leading a spirited bidding war for first access to Schapelle Corby, following reports the former beauty therapist may be released from the Channel 7 Compound as early as this weekend.
The former Gold Coast resident has been held in the notorious Bali stronghold since last Monday.
In what is likely to be a big ratings winner, the interview will provide an insight into conditions inside the compound and what it’s like to share a building with Mike Willesee.
Although Nine is believed to be the frontrunner, industry insiders say Channel 7 is also keen to secure the deal. All networks have offered to provide 24/7 protection from the media as part of their deal.
