Better than anyone, Denyer knows how to ride the wave when the surf’s up. “You’ve got to roll with the good times in entertainment,” Denyer, 41, tells WHO. “Television can be a fairly fragile game. When it’s working well you have to take it all on. It’s better than not having a job.” Denyer will front DWTS in 2019 with The Living Room’s Amanda Keller.
A new panel of judges is yet to be announced. The show aired on Channel Seven from 2004 to 2015, ending after 15 seasons. The hosting gig marks something of a return to the DWTS fold for Denyer, who won the fourth series on Seven.
Importantly, Denyer says he’s keeping his health in check. Last year, the presenter – and sometime racing car driver – opened up about his battle with prescription drugs after a near-fatal car crash in 2008.
“I was a pedal to the metal kind of guy,” he says. “I lived life flat out and I never read my body’s signs.”
These days, he’s eating and sleeping better. He’s more in tune with his body’s signals, where he once ignored the warning signs and “pushed on” as “hungry people trying to climb the ladder” can do.
