Robert actually appeared on the show as a guest star alongside his mum Terri and sister Bindi back on 2016. Upon being named the host of the new season, Robert reflected on his previous stint.

“I was knee-high to a grasshopper and had the bowl cut. This just feels like it was meant to be. I loved so much getting to do that show. I remember just being so in awe, getting on that set, seeing the massive crew, the incredible energy that particularly Julia brought to that shoot,” Robert told Women’s Weekly.

“Since then, I became a massive fan of the show and watch it every season so to be able to have this opportunity is wonderful,” he continued before adding:

“There have been so many rumours flying here, there and everywhere, and so, to finally say that I can be a part of this show in some capacity is so wonderful. It is actually a dream come true for me. I never thought something like this would be a reality. I just cannot wait to take this on, it is my first time getting to sink my teeth into something like this.”
