I must admit I thought this might have been deserving of a more profile timeslot (Sunday 6:30 perhaps?), and maybe with a blast from the past co-hosting with current faces.
But there are some great names referenced in this Press Release that will make it a must-see for TV addicts everywhere.
TEN is also still looking for viewers to vote in its poll for their favourite show.
Carrie Bickmore said: “I’m thrilled to be co-hosting 50 Years Young with Peter Helliar. As a child I used to watch It’s A Knockout with my family and we would try and use inflatable pool toys and fun things to create our own version of the show in the backyard.
“This is a great opportunity for everyone to cast their vote and have their say in Ten’s 50 Years Young celebration.”
Peter Helliar said: “I’m looking forward to looking back on some iconic TEN moments. Carrie and I can’t wait to recreate Scott and Charlene’s wedding as the centrepiece of our hosting duties.”
The celebration special will include a galaxy of television stars, including Dr Chris Brown, Sandra Sully, Johnny Young, Chrissie Swan, Denise Drysdale, Claudia Karvan, Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald, Samuel Johnson, Osher Gunsberg, Jennifer Hansen, Steve Vizard, Dave Hughes, Bruce Mansfield, Terence Donovan, Ian “Dicko” Dickson, Toni Pearen, Ed Phillips, the cast of Neighbours and many more.
We want you to be part of 50 Years Young, by voting for your favourite homegrown TEN shows of all time. The results of the public vote will be revealed during this special television event.
