Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Columnist - with ROVE McMANUS

To say Satur­day Night Rove marks your re­turn to Aussie screens doesn’t seem right, since you’re never re­ally off them. But you’re chang­ing to the Satur­day shift. Pre­sum­ably, you’ll be get­ting time-and-ahalf? You’d think that,

but no. The fact I’m los­ing half my week­end didn’t dawn on me un­til only a few weeks ago. Thanks for re­mind­ing me.

With three Gold Lo­gies to your name, you’re just two off the record, held by Ray Martin and Gra­ham Kennedy.

Have you got your eyes on the crown?

I hadn’t been keep­ing score, but now you’ve got my in­ter­est… You in­ter­viewed your icon Sir David At­ten­bor­ough in April. Was it hard to keep it to­gether? Very, but un­like other big-name celebri­ties, he has such a calm­ing in­flu­ence when he en­ters the room. But

I was dis­ap­pointed they cut my “do you want to swap friend­ship bracelets” ques­tion.

Also this year, you pub­lished your first book, Dis­gust­ing

McGross­face. How au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal is it? I am proud to say that ev­ery nu­anced fart joke in that book comes from a lifetime of ex­pe­ri­ence.

Satur­day Night Rove pre­mieres 7.30pm, Au­gust 24, on Net­work 10 and WIN.
