Peter Helliar Was Squirrel-Gripped During Today Interview
Posted on April 26, 2017 by Pippa Doyle
The Logies was days ago, but snippets of the shenanigans we didn’t see keep slipping past the keeper.
One such story involved Pete Helliar.
Speaking with Carmen and Fitzi for Breakfast, Helliar waxed lyrical about his nod to #jacketgate (pictured above, with Kat Stewart) and missing out on the Gold Logie, but it was this incident which had the studio in hysterics.
After the Logies wrapped, Helliar said everyone usually heads out to the foyer area of the venue where a whole lot of mingling happens before the after-parties kick off.
“I was doing an interview with the Today show,” Helliar said.
“…and I felt a hand sneak between my legs and grab - like squirrel grip me.”
It turned out to be the man of the moment.
“It was Molly,” he deadpanned.
“That’s how he shakes hands these days.”
Pete Helliar’s comedy special, One Hot Mess is on tonight at 8.30pm on Ten
