Yay! Here’s the press release x

Australia’s favourite dads and their loved ones return with more fun, friendships, fights and fabulously flawed families in the new season of House Husbands, premiering on Monday, February 6, on Nine.

The exceptional cast of characters navigating the craziness of modern life includes Hugh Sheridan (Nick), Delta Goodrem (Izzy), Gary Sweet (Lewis), Firass Dirani (Justin), Rhys Muldoon (Mark), Julia Morris (Gemma), Natalie Saleeba (Abi), Jane Allsop (Rachel), Louise Siversen (Miss Looby) and Denise Scott (Nurse Toni).

New faces in town include Nancye Hayes (Liz) and Roy Billing (Bernie) playing Mark’s overbearing parents, plus Rahart Adams (Rafiq) as Justin’s estranged younger brother with a troubled past.

In the premiere episode Lewis (Gary Sweet) is unimpressed with his neighbour Rachel’s (Jane Allsop) new younger beau and their alfresco lovemaking habits. He’s even less impressed to discover that this suitor, Nick (Hugh Sheridan), will be teaching music at Nepean South Primary School and hitting all the right notes with kids and parents alike. Lewis is certain that Nick is hiding something and he’s determined to expose it.

House Husbands is a Playmaker production for the Nine Network, with the support of Film Victoria.

Executive Producers are Andy Ryan and Jo Rooney from the Nine Network, with David Maher, David Taylor and Sue Seeary from Playmaker. The series is produced by Sue Seeary, with Jo Martino the script producer. The directors are Grant Brown, Ian Watson, Fiona Banks and Sian Davies.


I have been shortlisted in three categories for the 2016 TV Week Logie Awards; Best Actress, Best Presenter and TV Week Gold Logie. I would be so grateful for your support in all three of them:

The voting closes on Sunday 17th January 2016 and the awards will be announced on Sunday 8th May. Who knows, next year I might even remember to read out the nominees…



I couldn’t be more excited to confirm that both my favourite shows will return next year:

We head back to South Africa for more I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! – keep an eye out over the summer for clues as to who might join us in the jungle. In the meantime get ready for more screaming, squirming and squelching… (Oh, and there will be antics from the celebrities as well.)

After I get home we’ll be recording season 5 of House Husbands – and the smash-hit, Logie-winning Aussie drama will be back with more laughs and plenty of surprises later in 2016.

Can’t wait!


It has come to my attention that some websites have been unlawfully using my name and image to endorse a dietary supplement known as Gardenia Cambogia HCAMAX. You might have even seen posts in your Facebook feed with special offers for Australian customers.

I have not endorsed these supplements or diet pills in any way, I have no affiliation with the company selling them and they are using my image without permission. I recommend you do not purchase products from these companies, as there are multiple reports suggesting they are scamming customers.

For the record, I lost weight by not eating sweeties. For about 5 years. Jx


I had one job… xx


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind votes for House Husbands & for me for the 2015 #tvweeklogies. I’m honoured to be named among the 5 most popular actresses in the country.

Come Logie night I will be stopping traffic in a hand made gown by the insanely talented Julie Sulfi from Belluccio in Melbourne. Keep your eyes peeled for a show stopper.

Loads of love

I will join forces with TEN’s favourite Bondi Vet and co-host of The Living Room, Chris Brown, for one of the biggest and most exciting live reality television events of 2015; the Australian version of the international sensation I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

Here are a few words from the Network Ten press release:

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will be filmed in the dramatic, picturesque South African jungle, with 10 big-name celebrities competing to win $250,000 for their favourite charity.

Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey said: “We could not have imagined a better duo to host I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.

“Julia and Chris are dynamic, passionate and intelligent people who will bring a unique flair, humour and kind-heartedness to the show. As hosts, they complement each other perfectly and we are thrilled to welcome Julia back to Network Ten.”

Julia Morris said: “I think we all know I’ve been waiting a long time to get Dr Chris Brown in the jungle…and under no circumstances will I be yelling GET ME OUT OF HERE!.

“I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! is a show I’ve been in love with since my time in the UK and is the kind of ‘stay at home and cancel all plans’ TV that doesn’t come along very often. It’s going to be unmissable.”

Chris Brown said: “The idea of spending some time in Africa always excites me, but when that means being at the helm of something as fun and fascinating as I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! then it’s a dream come true.

“And while I personally can’t wait to get up close to wildlife like lions, giraffes and leopards once again, the chance to work with the wildest of them all, Julia Morris, has me ready to make the great migration over there right now! She’s an amazingly talented, yet incredibly kind performer who is sure to have me on my toes every day in the jungle.”

With Julia and Chris there to help, the celebrities will leave their beautiful homes, families and luxuries behind. How will they cope with African wildlife, a constant series of challenges and tests, basic rations and their fellow campmates?

Who will survive the infamous Bush Tucker Trials? Who will win the hearts of viewers and be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle?

Australians will cheer and laugh along, as they vote to decide what challenges the celebrities will face, who takes part in the Bush Tucker Trials and who will be forced to shout “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!”

Ms McGarvey said: “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is the biggest entertainment show in the UK and we cannot wait to bring the local version to Australians.

“It will be family entertainment at its best, a nightly soap opera in which viewers decide who eats, who plays and who stays.

“This innovative television experience will be super-sized across all screens, with a fully integrated television offering and innovative online experiences. It will captivate, entertain and delight all Australians,” she said.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is being produced for Network Ten by ITV Studios Australia. I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Coming To TEN In 2015.

Nine’s co-Heads of Drama, Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan, said: “Life will get even more unpredictable and entertaining for our House Husbands and their families in 2015. House Husbands reflects the joys and heartaches of raising families in modern Australia. We’re delighted with the response to the current series and we can promise more surprises, laughter and life-changing challenges for series four.”

Executive Producers David Maher and David Taylor said: “Everyone at Playmaker is hugely proud of House Husbands and we are truly thrilled to be heading into a fourth season with the Nine Network.”
