IN­SIDE STORY

At home with Hugh­esy

Herald Sun - Property - - FRONT PAGE - JO­HANNA LEGGATT

THIS much-loved stand-up comic is a ra­dio and TV pre­sen­ter. He hosts KIIS FM Net­work’s na­tional drive show, Hugh­esy & Kate, with Kate Lang­broek and lives in St Kilda with wife Holly and their kids, Raf­ferty, 7, Sadie, 5, and Tess, 3.

Typ­i­cal Satur­day morn­ing

I try and ne­go­ti­ate a sleep-in of some kind. Holly and I ban the kids from screen time on de­vices dur­ing the week so ba­si­cally when Satur­day morn­ing comes we throw the iPad at them and try to get some sleep-in time. We also take the kids to AFL Auskick on a Satur­day morn­ing, which makes es foro so some e p pretty etty co cold d starts to the day in win­ter.

Se­cret do­mes­tic skill

I wouldn’t say I am do­mes­tic. When it comes to the garden, a weed needs to get to the size of an oak ak tree to re­ceive some at­ten­tion from me. In terms of in­side the house,se, I do enough so that my wife doesn’t esn’t stab me.

Sig­na­ture dish

I am not a great cook and my ex­cuse is that I work driv­e­time ra­dio and amm way too tired when I get home to cook. My spe­cialty, pe­cialty, how­ever, would be a fish fin­gerr sand­wich. I am very good at cook­ing fish fin­gers in the oven. As long as I re­mem­berer to set the timer.

Favourite chill-out mu­sic

I am old-school when it comes s to mu­sic. I like Talk­ing Heads, New Order, Crowded House, that kind of thing. I am stuck in the ’80s and I am still try­ing to con­vince the fam­ily how great the Pink Floyd song Wish You Were Here is.

Ideal night in

It would in­volve Holly cook­ing ga a de­li­cious meal, or maybe somee take­away, and the kids go­ing to o bed early and not wak­ing up dur­ingg the night. Nei­ther of us drink, so we would put a com­edy on and have someme sparkling min­eral wa­ter. I lovee to watch sports, but you need a happy medium, so a com­edy is a nice way to meet in n the mid­dle.
