Comedian Trevor Marmalade will reunite with Eddie McGuire and Sam Newman at next week’s Grand Final Footy Show special.
His return sees all three original hosts back together for what is being seen as a send-off to the show’s long entertainment legacy.
Marmalade was originally announced as returning but his name was absent when details were released later.
The event at Rod Laver Arena also includes co-host Rebecca Maddern, plus Shane Crawford, Billy Brownless, Brendan Fevola, and Doug Hawkins.
Birds of Tokyo and James Reyne will perform while the annual Player Revue becomes a “Born to Dance” competition with local clubs.
It screens 8:40pm in Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth with midnight in Sydney & Brissy.
