HEY Hey is very much still on the ta­ble at Nine, ac­cord­ing to Somers.

“Peo­ple still ask me about the show ev­ery day,” he says.

Con­sid­er­ing the huge suc­cess of Seven’s Molly Mel­drum minis­eries, Jo Beth Tay­lor’s re­cent stint on Ten’s I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! and a na­tional ad cam­paign fea­tur­ing Plucka Duck on TV, maybe it’s not a bad idea.

“If it’s go­ing to hap­pen I would like it to be this year as it is 45 years since we started (the show) and 60 years since TV be­gan,” he says.

“I’m sure ev­ery­one would want to be in­volved if they can. I’d love to get Ernie (Car­roll, the man be­hind Ossie Os­trich and Somers’ Hey Hey co-pro­ducer) back in some way.

“I un­der­stand Rus­sell (Gil­bert) is feel­ing much bet­ter. I haven’t spo­ken to him my­self yet but I’ve heard he’s do­ing well.

“I’d love him to be part of Hey Hey when we do it. Molly too, but that could prove more dif­fi­cult.”
