Chris Brown's rumoured new TV gig revealed after parting ways with Channel 10

The Bondi Vet star is rumoured to host a new renovation series.

Channel Seven has announced they are currently working on a brand new reality TV show set to rival Nine’s ratings juggernaut, The Block.

According to TV Blackbox, the show will be titled Dream Home and will be based on the successful New Zealand series of the same name which aired from 1999 to 2013.

The renovation programme challenges couples to transform a dilapidated house into their dream home to win a cash prize and is expected to launch in 2024.

While the host is yet to be announced, the publication reports “there’s no doubt” it will be presented by former Channel 10 star Dr Chris Brown, who officially joins the network in July.


Dream Home will also be produced by Endemol Shine Australia, the team behind Married At First Sight, MasterChef and Big Brother, who have already released a casting call online.

“Are you ready to renovate and transform your house into the home of your dreams?” the application reads. “Not only will you get a luxury makeover of your house for FREE, you will also be competing for a life-changing cash prize!

“You don't need to be a builder or a tradie, just someone with an eye for design and a drive to get your hands dirty.”

Chris Brown farewells I'm A Celebrity

It was announced in February that Dr Chris Brown, who joined Channel 10 in 2008 and has hosted I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! since its first season, had signed a multi-year deal with Seven.

The TV host officially farewelled I’m A Celebrity last month, telling viewers it had been “the greatest professional privilege” of his life to host the show alongside Julia Morris.

“I just want to really make mention of this incredible woman who's beside me here,” he said as he began to tear up.


“Nine years ago when people said it was crazy to pair a vet with a comedian, we both laughed a lot at the time because we knew that we clicked and we knew that we had something special and I don't think I ever could have imagined how special it would be and where that spark would take us and the connection we would have.

“I just wanted to say it's been an honour, it’s been a privilege, and I really hope and I'm sure this is not the last time we experience this spark. It'll take us to so many places, I’m quite sure.”
