So­phie’s Bu­ble rapt

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Out Of The Box -

SO­PHIE Falkiner is mar­ried, but even she fell un­der the spell of charm­ing Cana­dian crooner Michael Bu­ble. Falkiner, 35, left new son Jack and her four-year-old daugh­ter in the care of her hus­band Tony Thomas, chap­er­on­ing Bu­ble around his home town of Van­cou­ver for Michael Bu­ble’s Canada, a one-hour life­style and travel spe­cial in the lead-up to the Win­ter Olympics. ‘‘Not only was I lucky to travel to some of the most beau­ti­ful places on Earth, but to have the charm­ing and fun Michael Bu­ble as my per­sonal guide was a treat I am thrilled to share,’’ Falkiner says. ‘‘Canada has so much to of­fer.’’ Bu­ble’s love af­fair with Aus­tralia is no se­cret. The Grammy Award-winning artist was cho­sen by Fox­tel as its am­bas­sador for its Win­ter Olympic Games cov­er­age start­ing in Fe­bru­ary. A sports nut since ‘‘be­fore I can re­mem­ber’’, Bu­ble is part-owner of the Van­cou­ver Giants, a ju­nior ice hockey team. ‘‘Com­men­tat­ing and shar­ing my love of Canada on TV is just an ex­ten­sion of what I do as an en­ter­tainer,’’ Bu­ble says with a grin. Michael Bu­ble’s Canada screens tonight at 7.30pm on Fox8.
