Assuming Programmers don’t change their mind on an episode order, the first celebrity to appear on Seven’s Beat the Star series will be boxer Danny Green.
As first leaked by TV Tonight, the mammoth show is hosted by Daniel Macpherson.
Describing the show as a game show and variety all rolled into one, Macpherson told the Sunday Herald Sun, “I obviously love hosting and love the challenge, so to come back and have a solo hosting gig – the responsibility I’ve been entrusted with is exciting.”
He will also front Dancing with the Stars around late August.
The Seven show filmed at Melbourne’s Central City Studios, but TV Tonight hears some audience members were turned away despite having valid tickets.
Like airline flights, it isn’t uncommon practice for television shows to overbook audience capacity to compensate for the fact that not everybody turns up. In 2008 a shoot for Nine’s Hole in the Wall also came unstuck when some ticketed audience members were turned away. Not very nice when you’ve already paid for car parking and a baby sitter.
Hole in the Wall also shot at Central City Studios.
