JULIE GOOD­WIN’S DRINK-DRIV­ING ‘SHAME’

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Top Goss! -

She won over view­ers with her whole­some per­sona in 2009, but Masterchef win­ner Julie Good­win, 47, faces court on May 25 af­ter al­legedly drink-driv­ing at North Gos­ford, NSW, at 8pm on April 12. Her claimed blood al­co­hol read­ing, 0.107, is more than twice the le­gal limit.

On Face­book, Julie ex­pressed her “great shame and re­gret”, say­ing the in­ci­dent was “com­pletely out of char­ac­ter” and hap­pened af­ter “a cel­e­bra­tory func­tion I had catered”. It’s also al­leged she tried to evade the po­lice with a U-turn. Friends say she may be un­der pres­sure from a crowded sched­ule.
