Footy Show latest: Its on!

TALK about a double backflip – it looks like The Footy Show, in its entirety, will be coming to Lennox Head after all.

Last Thursday night Paul ‘Fatty’ Vautin announced the show would be broadcast live from the stricken seaside village; on Friday, Channel Nine quashed it in favour of live crosses; now, after having checked out the venue over the weekend, the full team is set to do the show from the Lennox Point Hotel this Thursday night.

While only in its infancy, the plan is to have The Footy Show team set up in three areas in and around the Hotel.

Lennox Point Hotel owner Greg Campbell revealed the plans after a busy weekend.

“It looks like we will have Andrew Voss and a few guys down in the regular entertaining area; Fatty and a panel will be set up on the balcony overlooking the ocean; and Mario (Fenech) will have his little area in among the fans in the park,” Campbell said.

“The street is going to be closed, so from the hotel across to the park, and in the park, there will be plenty of room for everyone who wants to come and have a look.”

More details will be released in The Northern Star tomorrow.
