He added: ‘When you do it for so long, 19 years, to pull it all away last year was hard. I really missed it. It was a tough year for me last year.’

Tom, who recently starred on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia before being eliminated on Thursday, admitted that if he had an opportunity to permanently return to the industry, he would take it.

Tom departed Channel Seven in late 2018 after more than 15 years at the network to start a new position at LJ Hooker Avnu real estate agents in Sydney’s North Shore.

He told BW magazine at the time he left the television industry because he wanted a job with more stability and longevity.

‘I think I did as well as I could for as long as I could in television,’ he said.
