Grant Denyer has revealed that his family had "no money growing up", with his mother, Glynis, hiding what she did for a living.
The Family Feud host, 39, told TV Week that although his mother told him that she worked as a receptionist, it was only recently that he discovered what she really did.
"She would dress in a business suit to head to work when she left the house... but then, she would get to her cleaning job and get changed to work, then change back into the business suit before she came home each night," he said.
Now a father of two, Denyer's life has changed immensely from "doing it really tough" during his childhood.
After winning a Logie last year, his mother admitted what she had held back for years.
"You don't have a massive ego, which I was worried about," Denyer recalls her saying. "You're good at what you do, so it looks like my job here is done," he said.
