Nine is taking a new approach to its 20 to 1 revival, announcing Nova radio duo Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald and Michael “Wippa” Wipfli as hosts.
It follows the announcement of Kate Langbroek as co-presenter of Unreal Estate yesterday.
The duo will succeed the legendary Bert Newton for the clip show, which will cover pop culture, sport, music, TV, movies and current affairs.
“I am so excited to be hosting the show, I have so many emotions about it, 20 in fact and we will be counting them down in the first episode. Episode two we will be counting down the 20 guests that Wippa had at his 21st birthday,” said Fitzy.
“Every New Year’s Eve for the past decade I’ve been counting down from 10 and it’s never felt like enough. Finally a proper countdown and you can still try and kiss the person next to you when we get to number 1. Fitzy has soft lips,” Wippa added.
The Nova duo most recently appeared on TEN’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Fitzgerald is not expected to front the return of The Recruit on Foxtel.
Nine is also in ongoing discussions with Hamish and Andy but yet to confirm their return amid speculation they will sign with Seven.
