The photos inside the magazine show Grant with his hand on his dance partner Lily Cornish’s thigh during a break from rehearsals of the Channel Seven show.


Chezzi took to Instagram to call out the publication, writing: “What the actual hell is this front page crap New Idea”.

She went on to say: “Right before this little ‘she’ll be right’ leg pat … I was on the phone with them also consoling Lilz… but where’s all the other photos New Idea?”

Chezzi asked where the photos were of her and Grant FaceTiming each other or the ones of “some tears and a big hug and pat on the back?”.

“Lilz is like our adopted daughter. We grew extremely close during her month long stay with us here in Bathurst. We absolutely adore her,” Chezzi said.

She called the context of the pictures and the headline “gross and really mean”.

Grant also took to his Instagram Stories to call the article “savage”, saying that while he doesn’t usually bother to respond to articles like this, he’s sticking up for Lily as “this kind of treatment is brutally unfair and disgusting”.

“I’m a Dad of 3 girls. And if any friend is having a bad day or a tough time in their life, I’m going to be there for them. End of story,” he said.
