SELLING HOUSES AUSTRALIA SEASON 12
Streaming Wednesday March 6

Click here to watch sneak peek

Foxtel’s smash-hit local production, Selling Houses Australia returns for its 12th season on Wednesday March 6, streaming new episodes every week and broadcast at 8.30pm AEDT on the Lifestyle Channel.

Having won the 2018 AACTA Award for Best Lifestyle Program, 2018 AACTA Subscription Television Award for Best Male Presenter (Andrew Winter) and Best Female Presenter (Shaynna Blaze), and host Andrew Winter being Foxtel’s first personality to be nominated for the coveted TV Week Gold Logie Award last year – Selling Houses Australia continues to be the most successful locally produced series in subscription television history.

In this brand new 13 episode series, Andrew Winter is joined once again by interior designer Shaynna Blaze and landscape designer Charlie Albone as they face their biggest challenge yet: working their makeover magic in a volatile Australian property market.

Minutes from the city, on the water, with great shopping and excellent restaurants, it’s a wonder that Fran and her husband Fred haven’t been able to sell their heritage listed two-bedroom property in Balmain, NSW. On paper it ticks all the boxes but in reality the house needs work and seems full of unfinished jobs – some slightly dangerous! With a four million dollar price tag and the property having already been on and off the market for three years, Andrew, Shaynna and Charlie have their work cut out for them turning this odd waterfront cottage into a Balmain beauty.

A so-called “dream life” on the water with kids can have its challenges – introducing Selling Houses Australia’s quirkiest makeover to date. Single mum Indiana decided to buy a 44 foot houseboat a few years after her marriage ended. She wanted 11-year-old Tobias and 8-year-old Telulah to experience something different and adventurous. Although having made beautiful memories over the past 12 months, the maintenance, size and logistics of living on their small houseboat is a daily struggle. But in order to revamp her home so Indiana can move her family to a bigger and newer boat, the Selling Houses team need the help of shipwrights and a degree in maritime law – challenging them like never before!

Season 12 of Selling Houses Australia will see Andrew, Shaynna and Charlie travel all over Australia – covering the bush, the beach, the outback and the city. Each episode will be available to stream On Demand following its broadcast on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel. Seasons 1 – 11 are also available for those wanting to catch up on past episodes.

Selling Houses Australia is produced by Beyond Productions exclusively for Foxtel’s Lifestyle.

GOGGLEBOX AUSTRALIA NEW CAST ANNOUNCEMENT!

MEDIA RELEASE: Sunday February 3, 2019

GOGGLEBOX AUSTRALIA
NEW CAST ANNOUNCEMENT!

Season 9 Premieres

Wednesday, February 6 at 7.30pm on Lifestyle

Foxtel today announced that one new household will be joining the hit local-production, Gogglebox Australia, when season 9 premieres on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel on Wednesday, February 6 at 7.30pm.

Brother and sister Tim and Leanne are like two peas in a pod. They blog together, eat together and drink together. Of Malaysian heritage, Tim was born in Penang but moved to Melbourne with his family when he was nine years old, and two years later Leanne was born. Family is incredibly important to both of them and since Tim came out, Leanne has been a huge support mechanism for him and a big advocate for LGBTQI rights.

Their 11 year age gap doesn’t stop the pair from being both equally loud and assertive in their individual opinions. However, when it comes to TV they’re both passionate about cooking shows – if people are cooking or eating it, chances are they are watching it.

Tim works as a retail technology consultant and lives in the suburbs with his fiancé and their new Boston Terrier, River. When he’s not day dreaming of traipsing across the globe, Tim’s days are busy eating food, photographing food, filming himself talking about food, or thinking about what to eat next.

Leanne lives with her partner in a compact apartment with two adorably neurotic Chihuahuas. Working as an operations manager in a factory environment with a lot of blokey blokes, Leanne is an avid gamer, occasional artist and musician, fulltime dog lover, and wannabe knitter who is partial to a weekend-long book or TV show binge.

Tim and Leanne will join returning cast including bubbly Greek best friends Anastasia and Faye; happily married couple Lee and Keith; the adorable and sports-crazy Jackson Family; the fun-loving and cricket-mad Delpechitra Family; best mates Adam and Symon; dealers in Indigenous Art Mick and Di; the close-knit Dalton Family; married couple Matty and Sarah Marie and their friend Jad; and the three generations of women in the Silbery Family.

Gogglebox Australia is an Endemol Shine Australia production for Foxtel and Network 10.

Gogglebox Australia Season 9 will be available to stream On Demand following its broadcast on Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel. Seasons 1 – 8 are also available for those wanting to catch up on past episodes.
