Celebrity weight loss guru and horse breeding heiress Savannah Daisley will offer up $100,000 as bail security in a bid to be released from prison, as she complains her mental health is deteriorating and her business is losing ‘millions of dollars’.
Daisley, 45, applied for bail in Sydney‘s Downing Centre Local Court on Monday afternoon, after being remanded in custody last month charged with four counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a child aged between 14 and 16.
Police allege the Instagram influencer and the boy had sex four times over a 24 hour period from 5pm on May 19, 2021.
Daisley is currently locked up in Silverwater Women’s maximum security jail in Sydney’s west, a far cry from her $10million waterfront mansion 20km away on the city’s lower north shore.
Lawyers for the Smart Cleanse founder, who promotes her 14-day detox programs internationally with celebrity endorsements, told the court on Monday they will also argue that Ms Daisley’s mother has ovarian cancer.

Lawyer Gabrielle Bashir told the court that at a previous, unsuccessful bail application earlier this month a magistrate had been wrongly informed the alleged offences carried a maximum penalty of 14 years, whereas it was only 12 years.
She argued Ms Daisley had ‘deteriorating mental health in custody’, that she was due to appear in an AVO matter against her ex-partner James Wallis and that further imprisonment meant a ‘substantial financial deterrent’ to her wellness business of ‘millions of dollars’.
Ms Daisley’s father, the famous horse breeder Ross Daisley who raced renowned thoroughbred Choisir at Royal Ascot, was in court for his daughter’s hearing on Monday.
He has previously offered to pay $10,000 bail to have his daughter released from custody.
Ms Daisley would be willing to report daily to police from her $10m waterfront mansion at Longueville.

Ms Daisley is a successful entrepreneur and founder of Smart Cleanse – a 14-day program comprising capsules and powers that promise to detoxify clients’ bodies, eliminate stress, shed kilos, and ‘reverse ageing’.
Ms Daisley’s products now sell across Australia after she secured deals with pharmacy giant Priceline in 2018, and with supplement giant Mr Vitamin in 2020.
She launched the company in 2014 and quickly attracted a celebrity following, including Neighbours star Jodi Gordon, who featured in a video testimonial for Smart Cleanse in June 2021 – spruiking the program as her ‘health and beauty secret’.
The bail application will take place this afternoon.
Ms Daisley’s lawyers told the court that further imprisonment meant a ‘substantial financial deterrent’ to her wellness business of ‘millions of dollars’.
