Perennial Seven host Luke Jacobz has flagged his interest into stepping into host House Rules.
“I would definitely do one of those shows, because it’s the kind of show I love to watch as well,” he has told TV Week. “People doing positive things – that’s what I like.”
“Johanna Griggs is a phenomenal host and I don’t know that anyone can replace her,” he added. “I’ve known her for years and she’s always been that friendly… Everyone knows and loves her because she’s so sweet.”
Jacobz, currently hosting The Proposal for Seven, has fronted both The X Factor (including at short notice after the exit by Matthew Newton) and Instant Hotel. He was also a regular on Home and Away.
Johanna Griggs announced her surprise departure in July saying her workload on Better Homes and Gardens keeps her very busy. She is also tipped for Olympics coverage in 2020.
Whether Seven turns to Jamie Durie or Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen as host is unclear, both are currently judges.
