The Project’s Tommy Little dons a wig and compares himself to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian in a controversial social media post… but not everyone is laughing

And on Thursday, Tommy Little took it upon himself to don a brown wig and compare himself to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, with mixed results.

The 36-year-old’s Project co-host Jan Fran seemed lost for words, writing: ‘Okay, I’m not sure what’s happening but this is upsetting me deeply.’
