Eddie McGuire to replace David Campbell for Carols by Candlelight
David Campbell forced to pull out of Carols as interstate travel remains tentative.
Eddie McGuire has been named as a surprise co-host for Carols by Candlelight next week, to replace David Campbell who has withdrawn due to the evolving COVID-19 situation and the uncertainty concerning interstate travel.
He will join Livinia Nixon, both hosting for the very first time.
“My fondest memories of Christmas as a little boy are of watching Brian Naylor host Carols by Candlelight while helping mum bake for Christmas lunch. We’d then all head off together to midnight mass. To this day, my family and I all sit down and watch Carols by Candlelight every year. In our fast-moving, ever-changing lives, Carols is a Christmas Eve tradition that we all look forward to.
“I genuinely love Christmas. Whether as a little boy or a father, it is the best time of year. We really embrace the Christmas spirit at our house.
“I’ve always enjoyed watching the show every year and I’m really excited and chuffed to be involved.”
8pm Thursday on Nine.
