Hugh Sheridan has arrived in Nepal on a search for his younger brother who was in the area when the earthquake hit.
Hugh arrived at the international airport in Kathmandu on Tuesday – but he wasn’t alone. A Sunday Night camera crew were accompanying him, along with celebrity doctor Andrew Rochford.
Channel 7 have confirmed that they are working with Hugh as part of a story called ‘Moving Mountains’ and say it will be shown after My Kitchen Rules comes to an end.
They say the special will show them “providing medical and communications assistance to others in Nepal affected by the earthquake”.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the network has been trying to source a helicopter to travel to a remote area near Mt Everest to organise a reunion between the two brothers, with news that Zachary arrived safely in a small village this week after days out of contact. No helicopters have been available as they are all being used for important aid missions.
“It was apparent that others had more pressing needs, this is why the brothers have not yet been physically reunited,” a Channel 7 spokeswoman said.
People are said to be furious that Hugh and his entourage are using this sad time to to film his search for his brother who is safe, while the Nepalese are mourning the loss of more than 10,000 of their people and many more missing and feared dead.
A spokesperson has come to the defence of Hugh and Dr Andrew, reminding people that Hugh is an ambassador for World Vision Australia and Dr Andrew for Australian Red Cross and are there to help others, not just search for Zachary.
