Johanna Griggs has announced that she will no longer be hosting Channel 7’s House Rules.
The television personality made the announcement on Instagram, writing: “After a great deal of consideration, I recently sat down with the Network to ask to be allowed to step down as host of House Rules.
“They have very graciously agreed for me to do that, which I’m incredibly appreciative of.
“As the show goes into preproduction for the next season, it’s the perfect time to hand over the role to someone who will take the show into S8.”
Johanna then went on to thank her on and off-screen colleagues for all their hard work over the last seven seasons.
“As was collaborating with two great writers in Grant Osborn & Robert Adams along with numerous audio operators as we recorded the voice overs. Sometimes we giggled so much, it was hard to get the words out!
“I’ve worked with fantastic judges in Joe Snell, Drew Heath, Jamie Durie & Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen… & the beautiful & talented Wendy Moore right from the start of the show. She & design mentor Carolyn Burns McCrave helped make every series so much fun. (Go the Girl (staying) Power!!)
“But the best part always for me, has been getting to know the teams. We’ve laughed & cried together; they all trusted me very quickly & made my job incredibly easy which I’m so thankful & grateful for.”
Johanna’s departure from the show will see her focusing more on her hosting role on Better Homes and Gardens.
“My role as host of Better Home and Gardens, which everyone knows I’m crazy about, keeps me very busy. Hopefully now though, with a different workload, I’ll be in a better position to take up one or two of the great opportunities that come to my way, especially with 7 Sport, which is such a passion for me.”
We wish you all the luck, Joh!
