Hot Prop­erty

Hot Prop­erty: act­ing. It’s an op­por­tu­nity for him to be him­self and he likes the men­tal free­dom of ‘‘fid­dling’’ with the script and adlib­bing, which is out­side the con­straints of do­ing a soapie or a film.

Whether will be com­mis­sioned for a fur­ther sea­son is yet to be known, but Ca­ton def­i­nitely en­joys the for­mat.

‘‘We’ve had a dream run with it. I’ve never heard a bad word ever said about the show or dur­ing film­ing,’’ he says.

‘‘It’s a joy and it gives me the chance to be more me – what­ever that is.’’

The Gold Coast prop­erty mar­ket is in the spot­light tonight when Hot Prop­erty re­turns. Three-time world iron man champ Shan­non Eck­stein and his best mate, Kane Ge­orge, want to sell the bach­e­lor pad they bought in 2003.

The Mer­maid Beach unit, 100m from the water, should be pop­u­lar with buy­ers but with the lo­cal mar­ket strug­gling, Shan­non and Kane could find them­selves fac­ing an ex­pen­sive wipe out.

Also tonight, Ca­ton heads to Cam­per­down, in Syd­ney, where he meets Steve and Kylie. Keen to start up their own busi­ness, called Just Wrapt, they need to sell Kylie’s con­verted ware­house apart­ment at auc­tion for $725,000 for their dream to come true.

Se­ries re­turn, Thurs­days, 8pm, Nine and 8.30pm, NBN.
