Grant Denyer's shocking Sunrise confession
Grant Denyer has made a shocking confession about his time on Sunrise.
Denyer, who was the weather presenter on the Channel 7 breakfast show between 2004-2006 and 2010-2013, admitted on I'm A Celeb that he was sometimes drunk while doing his job.
“I don’t like my relationship with alcohol,” the TV presenter said. “When I was doing Sunrise weather for years, the amount of times I was probably still drunk on air in the morning was too many.”
The star admitted that it was obvious that he had, and still has, a drinking problem.
“I think I have only just realised that from coming in here (I’m A Celeb), I drink to lessen anxiety,” he said. “I didn’t really realise I had until I saw the pattern I had from the fear of coming into here and the anticipation of a new gig.”
Denyer revealed he had concerns about whether he would fit in with the rest of the I'm A Celeb cast and if he would be successful in the challenges.View this post on Instagram
The anxiety made him drink in the weeks leading up to the show.
Now, he's realised he has a massive problem.
“I have been asking myself this question for, far out, five years? ‘Do I have a problem?’ And I think the answer is, ‘I do!’”
The TV veteran hinted he would be giving up alcohol in the not too distant future, saying: “I think I need it gone from my life to be able to navigate life better than I have been.”
