Some of the terminology in last week’s Today Tonight was certainly forthright: Daryl “wanted more than the network could give him,” and was “swapping his dancing shoes for running shoes.” It also admitted the host was unhappy with series to series contracts.
Now sources tell The Australian Somers was more than a little demanding.
It claimed he wanted the show to be renamed Dancing with the Stars with Daryl Somers, dismissed by production company Granada. He also asked for a Winnebago to be parked outside Seven’s Melbourne studios as a large personal dressing room.
Somers also allegedly asked for the same amount of money even if there were only one season next year.
