Home and Away star Lynne McGranger has taken a cheeky swipe at Robert Irwin after he became the youngest-ever male to be nominated for a Gold Logie. The 20-year-old Wildlife Warrior and host of I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! is up for the prestigious gong and will be battling it with Larry Emdur, Andy Lee, Asher Keddie, Julia Morris, Sonia Kruger, and Tony Armstrong.

Robert only made his TV hosting debut this year alongside Julia Morris on the 2024 season of I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! replacing Dr Chris Brown. While his debut on the competition series was well-received, it is curious for someone with so little hosting experience to be nominated for the night's biggest award.

Now Home and Away's Lynne McGranger (or Irene, for those of us who only refer to H&A stars as their characters) has made a cheeky swipe towards Robert when commenting in support of her Channel Seven colleague Larry Emdur who is up for the award for the first time.

"I'm sorry but ol'mate Irwin has been on telly for a bloody minute!! No disrespect intended. #Lazforgold 🫶🏾🥇😍" she wrote on Larry's Instagram post, with over 300 people liking the comment. The comment came after Larry shared a screenshot of a message he was sent, with someone congratulating him on the nomination but telling him they'd be voting for Robert.

Lynne's rogue comment was met with mainly support from people.

"You said what everyone is thinking," one person said. "I agree 💯 #Lazforgold all the way! No disrespect intended for Irwin … Larry has my vote 🙌 he truly deserves to win 🥇," another commented. "You have my first vote ever today, only for you Larry, for the laughter that lights up my life!" another dedicated fan said.


Larry also replied, saying, "Are you starting an internet feud Lynne? ❤️❤️ luv uuuu," with Lynne then saying, "could be honey 😆🥰🥇."

The 2024 Logies will air on August 18, so rest assured, there's a lot of time to get your votes in still.
