what happened to the yoplait petit miam girl 90s child star resurfaces

She starred in the famous series of commercials for Yoplait Petit Miam in the ’90s. 

And while many millennials will recall the advert’s catchphrase (‘Yoplait Petit Miam… it’s French for mmm… yum!’) the child star in the campaign was just as memorable.

Despite her young age, Jessica Fallico spoke in a flawless French accent in the ad, which also starred another pint-sized actor as her little brother.

The advert begins with Jessica saying, ‘This is Yoplait Petit Miam in a tube. You can eat it walking, running…’ 

But then her brother snatches the yoghurt and runs away from her.

The little boy is later shown eating the yoghurt behind an archway, as Jessica shouts after him.  

Yoplait fame: 'I don't get recognised anymore. But as soon as people spell it out to others. The joy that comes on people's faces,' Jessica (pictured) said candidly

Back in 2018, Jessica spoke about the advert the made her famous.

She told 2GB that while she doesn’t get recognised anymore, she still sees the ‘joy’ in people’s faces when they find out who she is.

Sadly, she didn’t keep in touch with the ‘little French kid’ who played her brother because he lived in Melbourne while she was based in Sydney.  

‘We never saw each other again,’ she said. ‘It’s a long lost brother and sister.’

Jessica starred in the beloved ads through the 90s, alongside her on-screen brother. Fans might be shocked to know she actually doesn't speak with an accent

Now aged 34, Jessica has had a lively career in the local entertainment industry.

She has starred in a number of popular TV shows, including a guest spot on Channel Seven’s medical drama All Saints 

She also appeared as an extra in the TV series Farscape and soap opera Home and Away, which is filmed in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

In addition to her Yoplait fame, Jessica appeared in adverts for Internet provider Bigpond and discount supermarket chain Aldi.

Funnily enough, her Bigpond advert also featured a little girl being pestered by her younger brother.

More recently, Jessica has worked as a theatre director, overseeing productions of Shrek The Musical and Legally Blonde at the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta

Channel Nine urged to hire psychologist for reality stars on Married At First Sight and Love Island

channel nine urged to hire psychologist for reality stars on married at first sight and love island

Channel Nine has been urged to hire a psychologist for reality stars on shows like Married At First Sight and Love Island by a leading mental health expert. 

Psychologist Dr Kate Baecher, who has worked on The Bachelor and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, made the recommendation in a report to the broadcaster.

She also criticised Nine for not having a risk management system or register, which she said should be implemented in addition to hiring a resident psychologist.

Dr Baecher’s report recommended Nine only work with production companies who agree to high standards of mental health, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Married At First Sight is produced by Endemol Australia while Love Island is produced by ITV Studios Australia. 

Despite the harsh criticisms, Dr Baecher said Channel Nine overall has a ‘robust duty of care system’. 

Nine ‘has been proactive and forward thinking in its implementation of its duty of care responsibilities’ and ‘largely met the requirements of Workplace Health and Safety legislation’, according to Dr Baecher’s report.

The recommendations come after MAFS star Natasha Spencer, 26, had a ‘mental breakdown’ and was rushed to hospital in April. 

‘I had anxiety a week leading up to it [the finale]. I was at home and had a breakdown. I got taken under a section 22, a medical hold,’ Natasha told Daily Mail Australia at the time.   

A hold or involuntary hospitalisation often occurs when patients need urgent medical care, or so that doctors can determine their mental state. 

Natasha said the doctors ‘thought I was a danger to myself’ and evaluated her for two to three hours before discharging her.   

She has since been very vocal advocate about mental health and posted a photo of her ‘wedding’ to Mikey Pembroke on MAFS earlier this month.   

‘Little did I know that the next five weeks would spiral me into the worst mental state that I had ever experienced and the public backlash that would be awaiting me would continue my downward spiral for months,’ she captioned the post.

At the time of Natasha’s breakdown, Channel Nine told Daily Mail Australia that they take the health and well-being of MAFS stars ‘extremely seriously.’

‘Nine and Endemol Shine takes its obligations in respect to the health and well-being of the participants of this program extremely seriously. All participants have access to the show psychologist during filming, during broadcast and once the program has ended,’ a spokesperson said.

‘Nine also have an additional service for participants should they like or need further individual and confidential psychological support.

‘This service gives participants access to psychologists who have been specifically engaged to support those involved in the program in relation to their experiences.’

‘This service is available to all participants for as long as they need it, it does not end.’

The topic of the mental health of reality stars recently shot into the public consciousness after Love Island UK host Caroline Flack took her own life in February. 

Caroline, 40, was found dead in her North East London apartment with a coroner’s inquest concluding the cause of death was suicide in August. 

She is the fourth person linked to Love Island to have killed themselves.

Another post features two ‘candid’ photos of Bella holding a bottle of BondiBoost hair treatment. 

‘I couldn’t choose between these two photos so here are both, don’t get @ me,’ she wrote alongside the hashtags #BondiBoost #BoostYourRoots and #Ad.

Bella has previously described herself as a girl with ‘an ardour for writing, style, beauty, travel, food and wellness’.

‘I have worked on jobs from magazine editorials, fashion e-commerce websites to Instagram content,’ she states in her biography on TheRight.fit website.

TheRight.fit is a platform that allows marketing companies to scout and browse talent for endorsements. 

Days earlier, a 2017 television advertisement for retail chain TK Maxx starring Bella surfaced online.

The commercial shows her dancing around a wooden clothing stand in a variety of different outfits.

Earlier this month, Bella publicly slammed allegations she was an aspiring actress who once dreamt of moving to LA to further her career.

‘I’ve never moved to LA, I’ve never wanted or tried to be an actress in Australia, never wanted or tried to get work as an actress in LA and certainly am not acting on the Bachelor,’ she wrote on Instagram.

Fancy that! It came just days after a 2017 television advertisement for retail chain TK Maxx starring Bella surfaced online

Without naming names, she claimed that people had tried to ‘fabricate’ stories about her in order to feel ‘relevant’ and ‘important’.

During an anonymous Q&A session on The Bachelor earlier this season, the other contestants surprised Bella with a question about her influencer career.

They asked her if she was on the show to get more followers, and she replied that she already had enough followers and was only interested in Locky Gilbert.

Locky was also asked if Bella was his ‘favourite’. He responded by saying that he didn’t have favourites and was still getting to know everyone.

Former Married At First Sight couple Stacey Hampton and Michael Goonan recently rekindled their friendship.

But it appears the 28-year-old businessman hasn’t quite got over his ex-‘wife’, as a source tells Daily Mail Australia he is secretly hoping they will reconcile.

‘They’re good friends now, but Michael wants her back,’ the source said on Monday. 

Claims Michael Goonan 'wants his ex girlfriend Stacey Hampton back' after her plans to relocate to Melbourne to 'start a family' with her new man were revealed. (Pictured together)

‘Michael doesn’t approve of her new relationship and is doing everything he can to try and get Stacey to visit him in the Gold Coast,’ they added.

It comes just days after Daily Mail Australia revealed that Stacey was planning to relocate from Adelaide to Melbourne to pursue her new romance.

‘Stacey’s head over heels for her new man, and I have never seen her happier,’ a source close to the mother of two said last week. 

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Monday, a source close to the couple has claimed Michael is hoping to reignite his romance with the 27-year-old blonde bombshell

‘She’s already started to pack her bags and she’s ready to get on the first flight out once border restrictions are lifted,’ they added.

Last week, Stacey and Michael proved they had put their differences aside by catching up for lunch in Adelaide.

Their friendly reunion came after Michael had made a public appeal on Instagram for her to give him another chance – as mates.

'Michael doesn't approve of her new relationship and is doing everything he can to try and get Stacey to visit him in the Gold Coast,' the source added

Earlier this month, he shared a throwback photo of the former couple in happier times and wrote: ‘So publicly Stacey. Wanna be my friend again?’

The millionaire’s plea to Stacey came after his break up with fellow Married At First Sight star KC Osborne in July.

KC blamed their break-up on Michael’s unwillingness to change his ‘playboy’ ways.
