EXCLUSIVE: Jackie Gillies reveals the truth behind THAT infamous reading with Princess Diana’s former butler

Despite the controversy surrounding it, she has no regrets.

By Anita Lyons
When Real Housewives of Melbourne star and psychic medium, Jackie Gillies, entered the jungle in 2018, fans of the reality star were excited with anticipation over what little nuggets of info she would give to her camp mates.
During that time, the Newcastle local made headlines for an on-air reading she did with model and camp-mate Simone Holtznagel, channelling the late Charlotte Dawson, who tragically took her life in 2014 at just 47.
But it was a reading that never aired with Paul Burrell, Diana, Princess of Wales' former butler, that gained world-wide interest.
According to the production team, Paul burst into tears after Jackie had delivered messages from his former employer - because, as he put it - "there's no way in the world that this woman is not here."
In a new interview with Now to Love, Jackie, who is about to embark her Shine It Up Live tour across Australia, revealed an unknown piece of information. She and Paul were destined to meet.
"Do you want to know what's really interesting about this situation?" Jackie asked.
"I have these triggers. I may see someone on the television and know I'm going to meet them and I'm going to be in their space or energy.
She then told of how she remembered "seeing Paul Burrell and Princess Diana on television", and she thought to herself, "I'm going to meet this guy", even telling her mother that at the time.

And while it may sound like a coincidence, Paul felt the exact same way about Jackie.
"The first thing he said to me was, you are the person I feel most connected to – because he got to watch some footage before going in and he goes, I just know that I'm being guided to you."
According to the 38-year-old, Paul "really wanted a reading" but Jackie had to "clear her energy" beforehand.
"Because when you're in the energy of being in I'm a Celebrity...Get Me out of Here, there's only a ration of bloody rice and I'm Croatian and I love the big pots of food!" she laughed. "There's was none of that!"
"I don't remember what I say in readings but I knew I had to write it down, because I knew I had to tell him some things," she recalled.

Jackie asked the producers for a pen and paper, because she "didn't want the Australian public to know what the angels were actually saying."
"So I started writing down some of the things that he needed to hear and he started to cry and I named some people that had passed away in different circumstances and Princess Diana came through.
"Now don't forget, Princess Diana was very much into psychics and into energy before she passed and I started telling him things that absolutely nobody knew. The only person who knew would have been Princess Diana and he was like, even though he had heard I was a good psychic, he needed to know that it was real."
With complete accuracy, the Croatian star then began naming things that had happened while Paul worked for Diana, causing him to burst into tears.
"They didn't air this because he didn't want anyone else, particularly the whole country, knowing this," Jackie revealed.
"He said to me, "she's here. There's no way in the world that this woman is not here."

As further proof, the medium then named Paul's grandfather and a friend of his who taken his own life, further proving that Princess Diana was in the jungle with them.
"I always had this connection with Princess Diana and I had given Paul that reading.
"There's a lot of people out there asking 'Jackie, do you think that was the right thing to do?' and I said, absolutely yes! I will never be ashamed of what I do and I know I add to people's lives.
"What I would like people to take away from is, don't look at psychic readings or energy fearfully. Look at it as a way to keep an open heart and keep an open mind because we are all psychic and it's how we open up our energy and come attuned to it.
