Network Ten Commissions Sunday Night Takeaway.


Julia Morris And Chris Brown Announced As Hosts.


Coming To TEN And WIN Network In 2019.

Network Ten is thrilled to announce that it has commissioned the live variety series Chris &
Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway, based on the hugely popular and award-winning ITV UK
format Saturday Night Takeaway, which will premiere on TEN and WIN Network in early
2019.


Hosted by Australia’s favourite duo, Chris Brown and Julia Morris, Chris & Julia’s Sunday
Night Takeaway is a fast-paced, high energy live show, packed with outrageous fun, massive
surprises, exciting challenges, celebrity guests and big entertainment values.


Everyone is a part of the fun, with audience members chosen at random to participate in
challenges and viewers at home receiving surprise live visits, all with the chance to win great
prizes.


Celebrity guests will find themselves in hilarious situations, whether it is embarrassing
themselves in a task, or being pranked by Chris and Julia.
With an explosive mix of games, physical tasks and unexpected tricks, this live and
dangerous entertainment format is appointment prime-time viewing.


Network Ten Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night
Takeaway with Chris Brown and Julia Morris will be an exciting addition to our Sunday night
line-up. There is nothing like Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway on Australian
television. It is live and dangerously shiny family entertainment at its best.”

Julia Morris said: “I absolutely love Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and can’t believe
my luck that I get to stand alongside my beloved Docteur and host our very own local
version of the show.“Takeaway is the ultimate combination of hilarious, exciting, heartwarming and completely nuts. The Docteur and I are a natural fit!”

Chris Brown added: “This is such an exciting and dynamic show to be a part of. But best of
all, it’s got a massive heart that will deliver such a huge hit of warmth into Australian lounge
rooms. Just like Takeaway should.
“Julia and I have forged such a delightfully unique and fun friendship in our jungle treehouse
so the thought of bringing that to an Australian studio that isn’t a major lightning hazard is
incredibly exciting.”


Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway is an ITV Studios Global Entertainment format from
the UK based on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway which was created by hosts,
Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly. It has been airing on ITV since 2002, as well as
being made locally in a further 10 countries including the US and Germany.


ITV Studios Australia CEO, David Mott, said: “Takeaway is simply the biggest global
entertainment format around. The perfect marriage of Julia and Chris’ incredible talent,
along with the format will be the ultimate variety show.
“Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway is going to be the most fun night in you’ve ever
had. Big fun, live and dangerous television is back.”


Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway will be produced for Network Ten by ITV Studios
Australia and will air on TEN and WIN Network in early 2019.
