Barnaby Joyce and Vikki Campion sign interview deal with Seven’s Sunday Night

Ex-deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce and partner Vikki Campion have signed a deal with Seven for an exclusive interview on its Sunday Night program.

Mumbrella understands the couple’s six-week old baby, Sebastian Joyce, will also appear on the program.

According to The Weekend Australian, who first reported the story, Seven are paying the couple $150,000 for the interview. It reported the amount was settled directly with the pair after Sunday Night won the bidding war against Nine’s 60 Minutes.

The interview will be conducted by senior Sunday Night reporter Alex Cullen, who has been working for several months to secure the deal, according to The Weekend Australian.

Seven would not disclose the financial details of the deal to Mumbrella.

The Daily Telegraph’s February 14 splash.

The couple were plunged into a media frenzy earlier this year, after it was revealed Joyce had fathered a child with Campion, who was once employed as one of his staff members.

After the intense media coverage following Joyce’s resignation as deputy Prime Minister, the couple have managed to keep their new family relatively private.
