Frankie Muniz I'm a Celebrity

I’m a Celebrity’s Frankie Muniz teases potential move down under — will he call Australia home?

"I've got more friends there than I have in the States!"

The cast of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here Australia 2024 welcomed Frankie Muniz with open arms, so much so that the former child star has thought about relocating to Australia.

Speaking to Chattr post-elimination on April 15, the Malcolm in the Middle star admitted that Sydney was his “favourite city in the world”.

“You can probably find tonnes of interviews of me from like the early 2000s or whatever saying: “My favourite city in the world is Sydney, Australia. I definitely want to go and I will say, I was looking at real estate last night!

“I’ve got more friends there than I’ve got in the States!”

Frankie Muniz recalls his 2002 Logie Awards experience

Two years after Malcolm hit the small screen, Frankie visited Australia for the first (and only) time as a guest at the 2002 Logie Awards.

At the time, the then 17-year-old had no knowledge of his celeb status, worried that no one would know who he was.

“I didn’t know what to expect. I had like a publicity tour I was doing and I remember being in the car in a limousine pulling up to the Logies and there was a big crowd of people outside. And every time a car would open, everyone would go crazy for whoever got out,” he recalled.

“I remember sitting there with my mum going, ‘I’m going to bomb. No one’s gonna know who I am’. I didn’t even know if the show [Malcolm] was on there or whatever and I remember getting out and it was like the loudest, craziest cheer I’ve ever heard in my life.”

When arriving in the jungle, Frankie admitted he had a similar fear and was shocked when the other celebrities recognised him.

“I just didn’t know what to expect at all, like not just meeting the people, but the whole jungle experience was amazing!”
