Pair make old classic sing
THERE’S no business like show business — Julia Morris and Chris Brown (right) know the song well.
In fact, they live by the saying every day, and know too well the reality of show business isn’t necessarily as glamorous as it may seem from the outside looking in.
That’s the reason for Channel Ten picking the 1950s Hollywood song as the theme track for the first television ads for the fourth season of I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!
“Dancing is one of my beloved doctor’s special gifts,” popular comedian Morris told Confidential.
“Little known fact, he was in the original line-up for Newcastle’s own Tap Dogs. Just a steel town boy with a dream to tap.”
Of using the track, There’s No Business Like Show Business, Ten head of entertainment and factual programs Stephen Tate said: “We loved the irony of using There’s No Business Like Show Business juxtaposed by what the celebrities endure. And it was the perfect song for Chris and Julia to perform. We knew Julia would nail it but who knew our vet was a triple threat?”
Ten keeps celebrity details a closely guarded secret until contestants are revealed for their six-week stint in the African jungle when the show premieres early next year.
The first clue has been released though, suggesting it will be “two Aussie icons in the middle of Australia’s biggest feud”.
