Ex-Block star back behind bars

·1-min read

Troubled TV contestant and former Penthouse pet Suzi Taylor is back behind bars after being arrested in Queensland.

The former reality television star was accused in the Brisbane arrest court on Thursday of breaching her bail conditions and failing to appear for mandated court appearances.

Taylor has notched up a long list of legal troubles since surging to fame on renovations program The Block in 2015.

The ex-model, whose real name is Suellen Jan Taylor, faces 103 charges, including extortion and deprivation of liberty over an alleged "honey trap" incident.

Taylor was granted bail by the Supreme Court in November with strict conditions, including wearing an electronic tracking device and a 24-hour curfew.

The 50-year-old had been ordered to live with her mother, with whom she had recently reconciled, surrendered her passport and undertook mental health treatment.

But in less than a month, her excessive drinking and alleged refusal to stick to her court-ordered curfew saw her booted from the family home.

Taylor was then ordered to reside at a Brisbane mental health facility before again being evicted for intoxication.

Police arrested Taylor in Brisbane on Wednesday as she sought medical treatment.

Defence solicitor Michael Gatenby said Taylor was unable to show cause and would plead guilty to failing to appear and beaches of bail on April 13.

She is also due to face trial on the outstanding matters in a separate court.
