Stand-in co-hosts[edit]

Chris Brown[edit]

While Chris Brown is away in Kruger National Park, South Africa, co-hosting the show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! with Julia Morris, his stand-in co-hosts for The Living Room during that period have been chosen from 'turn-of-the-wheel' spins by Amanda. These stand-in co-hosts have included:


  1. Tim Robards – TV reality star from The Bachelor Australia
  2. Grant Denyer – host of Family Feud
  3. Brendan Jones – Amanda's radio co-host
  4. Shane Jacobson – Australian actor and former co-host of Top Gear
  5. Colin and Justin – Interior decorators and Scottish TV presenters
  6. Ben MingayWonderland actor
  7. Scott TweedieThe Loop co-host


  1. Jamie Durie – TV presenter, landscaper and horticulturalist
  2. Kris Smith – TV personality and model who later became a contestant on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!


  1. Shannan Ponton – Personal trainer for contestants on The Biggest Loser


  1. Jamie Durie – TV presenter, landscaper and horticulturalist
  2. Matty Johnson – TV reality star from The Bachelor Australia
  3. Kris Smith – TV personality and model


There were no 'stand-in co-hosts' for Chris Brown during the beginning of 2019 because The Living Room began airing later in the year because the majority of the co-hosts had other commitments. Chris was instead absent from the filming of two episodes as he was on an Antarctic expedition on Aurora Expeditions, with Greg Mortimer.

  1. Beau Ryan – host of The Amazing Race Australia
  2. Robert Irwin

Barry Du Bois[edit]

While Barry Du Bois was away for cancer treatment in 2018, Amanda personally looks for stand-in co-hosts for him.

  1. Grant Denyer – host of Family Feud
