“You would think after more than two years sitting on the lounge together watching copious amounts of trash TV and keeping Dan Murphy’s in business, we would not want to be around each other anytime soon? But here we are, back on the lounge together, martini in hand and ready to kill each other, well we mean, we look forward to waxing lyrical about everything on TV, again! Let’s just hope we don’t end up in divorce on national TV,” Anthony and Tim said.
Dylan, Andy, Anthony and Tim join an all-star line-up including The Irwin Family- Bindi, Terri and Robert, Hamish Blake & Zoë Foster Blake, Dave Hughes & wife Holly Ife, Julia Morris & Nazeem Hussain, Celia Pacquola & Luke McGregor, Matt Preston & Lachy Hulme, Alex Perry, Joh Bailey & Cheyenne Tozzi.
