ONE per­son Helliar hopes joins him on The Project desk over sum­mer is Lib­eral MP Christopher Pyne (left).

De­spite not nec­es­sar­ily agree­ing with his pol­i­tics (“as a co­me­dian I’m slightly more to the left than the right”) Helliar has be­come a huge fan of the pol­lie, hav­ing cen­tred sev­eral of his more no­table spots around Pyne’s clas­sic “I’m a fixer” line. “For a while I didn’t get it,” Helliar says. “I was like, ‘Who is this guy? He’s like a love child of a Bond Vil­lain and a Volvo owner.’

“But we had him on for an en­tire show. He came to the meet­ings, and I really like him. He’s so en­ter­tain­ing. I hope he comes on the show more.”
