Robert Irwin is nominated for a Gold Logie

Robert Irwin thrived as the co-host of I’m A Celebrity and now he’s up for a Gold Logie

What a ride!

Robert Irwin is one of the youngest celebrities ever to be nominated for a Gold Logie.

While Robert’s been a well-known name for, well, pretty much all of his life, he really made his mark on the entertainment scene after stepping into Dr Chris Brown’s shoes as a host of I’m A Celebrity Australia in 2024, alongside Julia Morris.

Now, he’s been announced as a Gold Logie nominee at the 64th TV Week Logie Awards and is up against some other huge names in the industry.

Robert Irwin’s journey to becoming a Gold Logie nominee

Prior to stepping into the host role of I’m A Celebrity Australia, Robert has made appearances on a bunch of TV shows.

His first was way back in 2007 in Bindi the Jungle Girl as himself. In 2017 he appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and that same year his family released the TV show Crikey! It’s the Irwins.

He’s also been on episodes of The Kelly Clarkson Show, RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under and Have You Been Paying Attention?

In June, Robert took home the award for On-Screen Content – Talent at Mediaweek’s Next of the Best Awards.

“It is such an honour to be recognised amongst some of the best of the best in Australian entertainment. It means a lot for me and the message that is so intrinsic to what I do,” he told the publication.

“I’ve been so humbled by the incredibly positive response to this season of I’m a Celebrity,” he added. “I hoped to bring a little bit of my passion for wildlife and conservation to this season, and it was so meaningful to hear how much audiences enjoyed that. Hopefully, we could create not only some hilarious moments but also showcase the beauty of the African wildlife.”
