The cast of Hey Hey It’s Saturday are emerging from their winter hibernation and set to burst back onto our television screens at 7.30pm Saturday, October 16.
Host Daryl Somers said the move to Saturday nights is in direct response to audience feedback.
“We’ve heard the message loud and clear – viewers want to see Hey Hey back where it belongs on Saturday nights,” he said.
“We can’t wait to get back to the timeslot we enjoyed for so many years. Saturday nights are perfectly suited to the unscripted, unpredictable fun that Hey Hey is all about. Whether you’re a family with young kids or on your way out to a party, we promise to offer our own unique brand of home-grown entertainment that everyone can enjoy.”
After the phenomenal success of last year’s reunion shows, Hey Hey returned earlier this year for a new series. Guests who have appeared on the show in 2010 include Kylie Minogue, Olivia Newton-John, Crowded House, The Eagles, Train, Jimmy Barnes, Usher, Craig David, Guy Sebastian, James Reyne, Gabriella Cilmi, Thirsty Merc, The Cat Empire, Kelly Rowland and The Potbelleez.
Daryl will be joined by all the gang, including Livinia Nixon, Red Symons, John Blackman, Russell Gilbert, Wilbur Wilde, Suze Raymond and Danny Clayton, together with audience favourites Plucka Duck, Ossie Ostrich and Dickie Knee.
Plus there will be the familiar doses of spontaneous fun with segments including Celebrity Head and Red Faces.
