Australia’s Got Talent is set to return to our TV screens in 2016 – but this time with a new host, comedian Dave Hughes!
The show is returning to TV next year for an eighth season. It will be its second year on the Nine Network.
The celebrity judges are expected to be announced at Nine’s upfront reveals on Wednesday but there are whispers that two of the four judges will be Kelly Osbourne and Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson.
“I reckon rather than being like Australian Idol or X Factor or The Voice ,this show has a bit more room to have fun,” new host Hughesy told the Herald Sun.
“With this sort of show there’s more of a chance to have a go. I don’t necessarily want to see a judge who’s just being nasty but I don’t think we’ll be cuddling people as much.”.
The host of Australia’s Got Talent last season was Julia Morris. She’s now busy with hosting duties on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
