Chris Brown's shocking move sparks TV shake-up

The popular TV vet has made a huge decision.

Channel 10's mass exodus continues with one of the network's biggest stars quitting to join a rival TV station.

I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! host Chris Brown joined Channel 10 in 2008, starring in Bondi Vet before appearing on The Project as a regular panellist and co-hosting The Living Room alongside Amanda Keller.

He has been hosting I'm a Celeb with Julia Morris since 2015, and narrates The Dog House Australia.

A statement on Thursday morning revealed the popular TV host has signed a deal with Channel 7, throwing Channel 10 into a spin.

The next season of I'm a Celeb is rumoured to air in April, and it is believed Chris will still host the next season with the star saying he will join Seven when he is "back from the jungle".

A statement confirmed Chris will join the Seven Network in July. No details have yet been released of Chris' Channel 7 projects, however, the statement said it will be revealed later this year.


Chris was previously on the Seven Network when he started his career on Harry's Practice in 2003.

“We are very pleased to welcome Chris back to Seven. It’s been too long," Seven West Media Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, James Warburton, said in the statement.

“Chris is one of the most popular and recognised people on Australian TV, bringing warmth, intelligence and a great sense of humour to everything he does. We can’t wait to have him on board and to announce the great new content he will star in.”

Chris said he "can't wait to sink [his] teeth into some exciting new projects".

The vet's shocking news comes after major stars have quit their gigs at Channel 10.

Last year The Project star Carrie Bickmore stepped down from the news program, along with co-star Peter Helliar.
