ABBY JANE COLEMAN, Breakfast Radio Host

ABBY JANE COLEMAN, Breakfast Radio Host

Abby is an absolute pleasure to be around, her laughter is infectious and she’s the type of girl who will send you home from an hour-long lunch at 6pm! Two weeks in Brisbane filling in with Stav and Labby, would really throw a spanner in the works for Abby Coleman. That’s all it took for bosses at (then B105) HIT105 to offer her a fulltime position on the breakfast shift. Abby quickly found herself relocating, while pregnant, with her first child! There has been an on air shuffle at the network since she settled in, but Abby remains an anchor of the show, and a much-loved voice in Brisbane. Her workload has extended to appearances on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention and the Nine Network’s Weekend Today. Lunch with Liz caught up with Abby at Jellyfish Restaurant in Brisbane’s CBD. *Note to reader, the food at Jellyfish is some of the best I have ever had. Please do yourself a favour – make a booking and order the Tempura Betel Leaf. Thank you to chef MiKi Damjanovic for hosting us.

TIM DORMER, Reality TV Star

TIM DORMER, Reality TV Star

Lets be honest, even our most successful reality TV stars have a tendency to drop off the face of the earth. Some win, a couple make headlines, others grace the pages of our weekly glossy magazines, most become yesterday’s news all too quickly.

However, a handful forge a media career long past 15 minutes. Tim Dormer is one of the lucky ones – although there’s an old saying ‘if you want more luck take more chances’. Tim took a chance joining the Big Brother House, 101 days later he would walk out $250,000 richer, but that wasn’t the end for him. Regular appearances on The Today Show, a YouTube channel with over 15,000 followers, documentaries such as The Graceland Happiness Project (airs on ABC, Oct 8th during Mental Health Week) and he stars as a member of this season’s cast of Celebrity Apprentice, on telly tonight! Lunch with Liz caught up with Tim ahead of a very special trip to Botswana, just over the border at a restaurant we’re claiming as our own, Three Blue Ducks, The Farm, Byron Bay.
