Welcome to Big Brother VIP’s Grand Opening

By SEVEN

The hit series premieres 7.30pm, 1 November

After months of preparation, Big Brother will swing open the doors to his VIP hotel at 7.30pm, Monday 1 November, with the star-studded premiere of Big Brother VIP on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Big Brother’s game just got bigger with his invitation to 12 VIPs to take a vacation from their celebrity lives and check into an experience like no other. Never one to do things modestly, Big Brother has invited the VIPs to his first-ever luxury hotel, where they will receive rock star treatment with a Big Brother twist. 

Big Brother is undeterred by the celebrity status of his guests.

Big Brother is always in control and ready to push the VIPs to their limits. They’re more afraid of him than cancel culture. They’re going to wish they’d signed on for SAS Australia instead!

Sonia Kruger, Big Brother VIP host

Removed from the world they know, this elite group will be at the mercy of Big Brother’s wicked game for 22 days. Their every move will be captured as they face hilarious house tasks, epic nomination challenges and edge-of-your-seat eviction ceremonies – all while they eat, sleep and share a bathroom together. 

Shock confessions and intimate conversations are on the menu as the VIPs vie to win $100,000 for their nominated charity. Who takes it home? Australia decides.

Everyday Aussies take on the most extreme SAS course ever

The four-part special event, SAS Australia: Hell Week, premieres Monday 7.30pm on Channel 7 and 7plus, featuring everyday Australians going to hell and back in the hope of passing SAS selection.

A teacher, fashion designer, stay-at-home mum, dancer, mineworker, bodybuilder, surfer and former Federal Police officer are just some of the 14 ordinary Aussies who have volunteered for the toughest, most intense SAS course ever attempted.

Across one week, these ordinary people will be pushed beyond their limits, subjected to extreme tests of physical, mental and emotional endurance in punishing conditions, with no allowances or exceptions made for age or gender.

No other test asks as much or means as much to the few who’ll survive Hell Week.

“It’s going to take a very special individual to get to this end of this course.

Pain will be constant and we will weed out the weak. They’re going to realise very quickly why it’s called Hell Week.

Ant Middleton, Chief Instructor

The full line-up of everyday Australians hoping to pass selection on SAS Australia: Hell Week is:

  • Bassim, 32 – Bodybuilder

Brownlow Medal count set to be a thriller

By 7SPORT, SPORT

Seven will bring all the drama this Sunday night

The 2021 Brownlow Medal count is shaping up as the most thrilling in recent times and the Seven Network will have all bases covered this Sunday night when the winner of the AFL’s highest individual honour is declared – wherever he is across Australia.

In a rare year with no outright favourite, the Brownlow race appears destined for a blanket finish, with leading contenders Ollie Wines, Clayton Oliver, Marcus Bontempelli, Jack Steele and Christian Petracca almost impossible to split.

Seven’s coverage begins at 7.00pm AEST Sunday on Channel 7 and 7mate and will be hosted by Hamish McLachlan and Jacqui Felgate, while Basil Zempilas, Abbey Holmes and Amberley Lobo will take fans inside the AFL’s official count in Perth throughout the night.

In a year when the competition’s leading players will again be spread across multiple locations around the country, Seven will draw on the collective might of its unrivalled national team to cross to all the leading contenders no matter where they are watching the voting unfold.

Sunday night’s festivities begin with the Brownlow Red Carpet, with Jacqui Felgate and Renee Enright set to cover all the glitz and glamour of the AFL’s night of nights, while Lions captain Dayne Zorko will join them from Brisbane.

As we look forward to another Brownlow Medal count in another year of uncertainty, we have called on every resource of the Seven Network to ensure we’re ready for anything that could happen at this year’s count – and anything could happen.

This year’s Brownlow field is the most open many of us can remember. The winner could come from anywhere and we might not know who he is until Gillon McLachlan reads the final vote.

Regardless, Seven is poised and ready to go. With the cooperation of the entire network, we’ve assembled a team from coast to coast that will bring viewers all the night’s biggest stories no matter where they’re unfolding. It’s sure to be a magical night on Your Home of Footy.

Lewis Martin, Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport

The Brownlow Medal count marks the start of the year’s biggest week of football on Seven as Australia counts down to the AFL Grand Final next Saturday, 25 September. Seven will announce full details of its Grand Final week coverage in the coming days.

Big Brother VIPs bare all

By SEVEN

Luxury hotel houses celebrity secrets

Shock confessions and intimate conversations replace the glitz and glamour of celebrity lifeas 12  VIPS bare their souls on Big Brother VIP coming soon to Channel 7 and 7plus.

Famous for writing a letter to Prince Harry in April 2018 pleading with him not to marry his sister Meghan, Thomas Markle Jnr is in the diary room when he announces to Big Brother he’s going to pen another letter to Meghan and his now brother-in-law, Harry, from the Big Brother hotel. 

“I’m gonna write a letter to Meghan,” shares Thomas with Big Brother. “Dear Meghan and Harry…The first thing I want to say to both of you…” will be revealed when the series airs.

After dinner one evening, Olympian and political candidate Caitlyn Jenner shares her trans journey with fellow hotel guests, reality TV fan favourite Luke Toki and fashion designer Imogen Anthony. Caitlyn uses an analogy of being born left or right-handed, to explain that being trans is no different. 

“You’ve probably never met anybody who is trans?” Caitlyn questions Luke. “Let me see if I can try to explain. Are you right-handed or left-handed? 

“Right-handed,” answers Luke. Hitting the point home, Caitlyn follows up, asking “Why are you guys right-handed and me left-handed?” 

“Well, it’s just the way you were born,” responded Luke, leading the group to a collective “ah” moment. 

Former AFL captain Dayne Beams opens up about his gambling and drug addiction spiral, “My wife, she’s been through a lot. Sorry if I get a bit emotional. I’ve been at rock bottom.”

Twelve VIPs are taking a vacation from their celebrity lives and checking into an experience like no other at Big Brother’s first-ever luxury hotel, where they will receive rockstar treatment with a Big Brother twist. Removed from the world they know, this elite group will be at the mercy of Big Brother’s wicked game; their every move watched as they face hilarious house tasks, epic nomination challenges and edge-of-your-seat eviction ceremonies; all while they eat, sleep and share a bathroom.

The story that couldn’t be told until now

By SEVEN

The new drama event: Australian Gangster

Inspired by true events, Australian Gangster is a fast, punchy and often funny rush through Sydney’s world of crime and gangland wars, told through the signature lens of writer/director Gregor Jordan (Two Hands, Ned Kelly, Dirt Music).

Growing up in an organised crime family, Pasquale “Pas” Barbaro (Alexander Bertrand) never had a shot at anything resembling a normal life. He is released from jail, but not before making an enemy of fellow inmate and Brothers For Life member, Mohammed “Little Crazy” Hamzy (Rahel Romahn). 

A newly freed Barbaro is not concerned about playing it safe or hiding in the shadows. He is, however, concerned about looking good on Instagram.

Coming soon to Seven and 7plus, the story of Pas and his cohorts reflects the modern criminal world.

They are all about flaunting their wealth and their physical appearance to try and create an image of themselves that they can project to the world.

They represent a modern and interesting twist on the gangster genre.

Gregor Jordan, Australian Gangster Director

Australian Gangster is a Roadshow Rough Diamond production for the Seven Network. Produced by John Edwards and Daniel Edwards and Seven head of drama Julie McGauran, it was written and directed by Gregor Jordan and directed by Fadia Abboud.

Epic new Australian drama takes flight

By SEVEN

RFDS set to soar from 8.40pm Wednesday, 11 August

Based on remarkable real-life stories, the gripping new Australian drama RFDS lands after the Olympics at 8.40pm Wednesday, 11 August on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Filmed on location in and around Broken Hill, RFDS captures the beauty and brutality of Australia’s vast centre, where the doctors, nurses, pilots and support staff of the RFDS negotiate the unique challenges of emergency rescues across some of the most inhospitable places in the country.

RFDS stars Logie Award-winning actor Stephen Peacocke (Home and Away, Wanted), Logie Award-winning star of stage and screen Rob Collins (Mystery Road S2, Total Control, Glitch) and acclaimed actors Emma Hamilton (Mr Selfridge, The Tudors), Justine Clarke (Tangle, Hungry Ghosts, The Time Of Our Lives) and Ash Ricardo (Offspring, Bite Club).

Determined to escape her past and start a new life, Dr Eliza Harrod (Emma Hamilton) arrives in outback Australia from the UK. Only days into her new role at the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Eliza finds herself at the forefront of a catastrophic emergency retrieval while Flight Nurse Pete Emerson (Stephen Peacocke) faces an unthinkable tragedy.

Audiences can expect beautiful scenery, deep and thoughtful storylines and a really, good honest look at how the RFDS does its vital work.

Justine Clarke (Base Manager Leonie Smith)

It’s not lost on us that we are representing a really important organisation that means so much to Australia.

Stephen Peacocke (Pete Emerson)

There’s a connection that the folks of the RFDS have with the people that they service which goes beyond doctor patient dynamics. They are a real part of the community.

Rob Collins (Dr Wayne Yates)

RFDS is an Endemol Shine Banks production for the Seven Network, with major production investment from Seven in association with Screen Australia. It was financed with support from Screen NSW through the Made in NSW Fund and the Regional Filming Fund.

Farmer Wants A Wife Reunion: Real love, surprises and secret revelations

By SEVEN

Which Farmer’s love is still burning bright?

The unmissable Farmer Wants A Wife Reunion is just around the corner, premiering 7.30pm Wednesday, 11 August, after the Olympics.

Join host Natalie Gruzlewski as she sits down with Farmers Will, Andrew, Matt, Sam and Rob to find out who is still in love, who has found their happily ever after and whether another Farmer wedding is on the horizon!

Each of our five lonely Farmers opened their hearts in the hope of finding the one. Thousands of single ladies applied to meet them, and each Farmer chose five ladies to embark on a once in a lifetime opportunity. Over six weeks, these ladies got to know their Farmer on their beloved farm.

Farmer Will chose 32-year-old nurse Jaimee to share his life. Despite forming bonds with lots of his ladies, Farmer Matt’s heart was broken when 25-year-old executive assistant Tara left his farm before realising her mistake. Following his heart, he chose Tara to start a life with.

Youngest Farmer Sam was smitten with 24-year-old oncology nurse Mackenzie and 24-year-old student nurse Allanah from the start, and despite having strong feelings for both, he bowed out early on his search for love. Our man from Snowy River, Farmer Rob, said goodbye to his chosen ladies and hello to four new love interests, but decided the lightning bolt had failed to strike on both occasions.

For Farmer Andrew however, it was love at first sight when he met 27-year-old community relations worker Jess.

The Farmer Wants A Wife Reunion is here. Join host Natalie Gruzlewski and Farmers Will, Andrew, Matt, Sam and Rob for a night of surprises, secret revelations and, of course, real love.
