EXCLUSIVE: TV Tonight understands Rob Mills will be announced as host of the rebooted Young Talent Time tonight at TEN’s 2012 Programming Launch.
Since he first appeared on Australian Idol, ‘Millsy’ has been working in recording, television presenting and a lead role in the stage musical, Wicked, for which he attracted good reviews.
He also has a small role acting and singing in Underbelly: Razor.
The revival of Young Talent Time is believed to be part of TEN’s plans to replace AFL on Saturday nights.
Mills will be able to bring singing and presenting skills to the new-look show which is expected to have a resident troupe and weekly contestants.
Original host Johnny Young will have a behind the scenes consulting role on the show, which began on 0-TEN back in 1971.
