The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS - GE­OFF SHEARER

JACKI Mac­Don­ald has found a new ca­reer – on the other side of the cam­era.

The zany 1980s TV icon, who au­di­ences fell in love with on Hey Hey It’s Satur­day, is now the anony­mous face be­hind the mar­ket­ing for Eat Street Northshore, Bris­bane.

And she ad­mits she’s an In­sta­gram junkie, post­ing videos from the pop­u­lar food mar­kets to so­cial me­dia.

“So­cial me­dia, I love it, it’s the most fun you’ll ever have,” the 64-year-old told U on Sun­day dur­ing a laugh­ter-filled chat re­cently.

“The In­sta­gram videos are like mak­ing a tele­vi­sion show. It’s about mak­ing the best of peo­ple’s per­son­al­i­ties.”

In 2013 Mac­Don­ald joined close friends restau­ra­teur Peter Hack­worth, TV pro­ducer John Stain­ton, and re­tail en­tre­pre­neur John Har­ri­son to es­tab­lish Eat Street. “It’s been a great ad­ven­ture for me,” she said.
