It certainly shows the new era of

consumer conservism. Retail sales

remained healthy but consumers are

shubbing debt. I think this trend

will continue. Credit card debt has

continued to slide while debit cards

are growing at a 16% annual rate. We

don't expect this trend to turn

around until the global economy

improves. If there is anything that

consumers have learn from the global

financial crisis is that you have to

spend within your means. That is

good news. Thank you for the update

on Sunrise. Soon on Sunrise, the Windies fight back at the WACA. I'll have the third cricket Test action and the rest of this morning's sport.

I can't wait for that. But I got the

weather for you. Brisbane, fine. A few showers for Sydney and Canberra. Scattered showers forecast for Melbourne. Cloudy for Adelaide and Perth.

An afternoon storm in Darwin. Fifi has the weather in detail when she joins us from the Carols in the Domain. A dollar means so much more at Macca's with the delicious Brekkie Snack Wrap on our new Value Picks menu.

Christmas with the stars. Rolf

Harris, robe an Keating on Weekend Sunrise.

Breakfast with the stars this

morning. Have a look at this line-up around us. Welcome back to Melbourne's Crown Entertainment Complex. If you live locally, drop down. We've got plenty of prizes on offer, including passes to the hit show 'Burn the Floor'.

If you love dancing, this is hot.

Nice. Burn the Floor. Hottest thing

in dance. You are in charge of

giving those away. But right now, Nat has the headlines in sport. A blistering century from Chris Gayle has given the West Indies hope in the third Test at the WACA. The visitors will resume at 2/204, trailing Australia by 306 runs. The Windies skipper attacked from the outset and no Aussie bowler was spared. The innings included one of the biggest sixes ever seen at the WACA. COMMENTATOR: That's a big six, straight down the ground. On the roof. Gayle bought up the fifth fastest Test century ever with another six but fell to Doug Bollinger two runs later. Sulieman Benn, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson

were all charged with bringing the game into disrepute following several ugly confrontations. The Pakistan team has touched down in Hobart to prepare for its 3-Test series against Australia starting in Melbourne on Boxing Day. The tourists are confident their bowling attack can trouble Australia but admit their batting and fielding must improve. They hope to do that in a 3-day warm-up game against Tasmania that gets under way tomorrow. Newcastle players will be questioned by club officials over the next two days over allegations giant prop Danny Wicks supplied drugs to Knights players. Police are also expected to interview a number of players and the club has vowed to punish any players involved. Wicks has pleaded not guilty to eight counts of drug possession and supply. Melbourne captain Kevin Muscat will become just the second Australian to play 500 league games when the Victory host arch rivals Sydney FC The veteran admits it's a match he's desperate to win

after Sydney humbled the Victory 3-0 at home in October. Round 20 of the A-League kicks off tonight with Adelaide at home to Wellington. In one of the more astonishing decisions handed down by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, French tennis star Richard Gasquet has escaped a long-term suspension for testing positive to cocaine. The World Anti-Doping Agency wanted the Frenchman banned for two years but the court accepted his claim that he consumed the cocaine

by kissing a woman in a Miami nightclub. And congratulations to Aussie legend Dennis Lillee who was inducted into the International Cricket Council's Hall of Fame yesterday. The champion paceman played 70 Tests and took 355 wickets, a record at the time. I don't rate myself as being in there. It's like your heroes, all of a sudden, you're sort of classed with them and I just, sort of, it's all a bit above me.

Nelson rates the chances of the Aussies at the SAG Awards. I'm in from dawn. I'm here till dusk. I'm really listening. I'm on the front foot. I'm a dog with a bone. I'm cutting red tape.

Music really matters this Christmas. The next round of major award nominations have been announced in the countdown to the Oscars. The nominees for the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards have been revealed. To take us through the major categories, let's go to Nelson Aspen in New York. Nelson, who's up for the two big acting gongs?

Well, happy holidays to everybody

there in Melbourne. It looks like

you are having an awesome time. I

had to keep my nose to the grind

stone on the SAG Awards. I know Mel

has been cheering for George Clooney. The SAGs are set apart by their award for best ensemble. Which casts are up for that?

Who are the Aussies in the mix for

these awards? It is a bit of a deja

vu because we see Simon Baker and

Tony could let. Simon is going up

against Brian Cranston.

Choice, choices. We will check in

with you a little while from now.

Looking very smart. I like the tie. On the way - is there anything wrong with a church using sex to sell its message? Plus soon, we'll catch up with champion surfer, Steph Gilmore. But next, this morning's news, sport and weather together. You're watching Sunrise live from the Atrium at Crown. Hey, Steve. Steve. Hi. Hi. Here's that three bucks that I owe you.

best glasses. Can you see anything?

Yup. Looks like fly's eyes. We have

to judge because we are giving away

- oh darling. We are giving money

away for the best outfit and the

best poster. You can judge. It will

be a tough decision. On the way - will making kids wear helmets for sport keep them safer? But first, let's get a news hit. Here's Nat. Good morning. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd

has ordered delegates at the Copenhagen summit to put aside their differences and agree on a plan to tackle climate change. It's hoped a deal can be salvaged by the end of the conference tomorrow when US President Barack Obama arrives in Denmark. Mr Rudd says the world will be letting down its little children if the talks come to nothing. Acting Prime Minister Julia Gillard has linked current strike action across Australia to the Howard government's industrial relations laws. Workers at Australia Post and Qantas, along with Sydney bus drivers, are either on strike or are threatening to walk off the job. Ms Gillard says several workplace agreements

are all coming up for renewal at the same time. Many agreements were struck in a big rush before the Howard government brought work choices into effect and many of those are maturing now and coming up for bargaining. Sydney commuters are expecting chaos on the roads this morning after bus drivers called a snap strike over pay and conditions. No Government buses will run in Sydney or Newcastle today. The Christmas travel plans of more than one million British Airways passengers have been restored after London's High Court stopped a 12-day strike by cabin crew. 12,000 workers had voted in favour of industrial action over a staffing dispute but the court ruled the ballot was invalid. The union says it will appeal. The only good thing to come from this is, obviously, people will get away for Christmas.

Our crew are legal, will fly, will get people to their Christmas breaks. British Airways says it's delighted with the result. The man behind some of Disney's most beloved animated films has died. Roy Disney, Walt Disney's nephew, lost his battle with stomach cancer aged 79. Roy was involved with Disney for 56 years and helped lead the company into a new animation golden age with the iconic films

'The Little Mermaid' and 'The Lion King'. An infamous blimp has stopped traffic after crashlanding in the United States. Police believe the pilot lost control of the homemade blimp when the engine stopped working, forcing the pilot down onto a median strip. It's the second time this blimp has hit headlines. Earlier this year, authorities thought a young boy was inside it when it floated to Texas. In finance news: The West Indies will resume this morning at 2/214 in reply to Australia's 7 declared for 520 in the third Test at the WACA.

On a fiery day when Sulieman Benn, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson were charged for bringing the game into disrepute, Chris Gayle continued the fireworks with a remarkable innings. The Windies skipper's 70-ball century was the fifth quickest in Test history. COMMENTATOR: What a way to bring up a century! Chris Gayle has played an absolute blinder. Doug Bollinger finally ended Gayle's knock on 102. Jarryd Hayne has called on the NRL to do more to keep its elite players in the game. Hayne signed off on a 3-year contract extension with the Parramatta yesterday but will consider the huge money on offer in other codes Johnathan Thurston is the latest NRL star to consider switching codes. Danny Green is confident he's given Bernard Hopkins an offer too good to refuse. Green jetted in from Los Angeles with Super Flyweight champ Vic Darchinyan yesterday who he hopes will also fight on the card

that would be the biggest ever staged in Australia. A new V8 Supercar alliance is aiming to end Ford's dominance of the sport. Paul Morris Motorsport has recruited 4-time Bathurst winner Greg Murphy to partner Russell Ingall in season 2010. Their new Commodore will be built by Triple Eight Racing, the engineers behind defending champion Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes.

hour. More soon. Fifi is also

The Atrium is abuzz this morning: The Atrium is abuzz this

morning:those glasses, boy. She's on track to become one of Australia's greatest surfers. Stephanie Gilmore has just won her third straight world championship surfing title in Hawaii. And there are no signs of her slowing down. Steph joins me now. Good morning.

Three straight. You haven't competed

without winning the world title. Is

it still special to win this trophy?

Definitely. They are all different

in their own ways. The first year

was competing and then the last year

strong. It just came

strong. It just came all my way. One

of the great things to come out of

this, Layne Beachley, she stood up

and said Stephanie Gilmore will be

the best ever. That must be nice to

hear from Layne.

hear from Layne I don't think the

best ever classify how many world

titles. I am definitely out to get

more but I'm not aiming to break

Layne's title. Do you feel you are

getting better and better? Yes, the

ocean is forever changing and I love

watching the boys surf. They are

miles ahead of us. This is great

reward. What do you do with the

trophy now. Are you having a break?

This is what you put the Christmas

pudding in. I have a bit of a break.

I will still be surfing because I

love it. And head down to Torquay

with my family and friends. Well

done. Great to have you home after a

fantastic year. You are one of our

treasures. Great to see you, Steph.

Here is Mel. You don't want to use

the word legend yet because there

are so many years ahead of her. We

love her. She is a great chick. It was one of Channel 7's hottest shows of 2009. 'Beauty and the Geek' saw a group of attractive young ladies

Partnered with some not so geeky

blokes. You hate the word geek. What

would you rather me use? Person. I

don't hate the word. I am just

getting sick of hearing it. Are you

no longer a geek? No, I am still a

geek at heart. Once A geek, you are

always a geek. I read comic books

and love science fiction. Jenna, how

was life? Has it changed since you

did the show? My life has become a

lot more funner, been going to cool

parties and meeting cool peel. What

did you think of the experience? I

loved the show. It is something I

will never, ever forget. I made some

really cool friends and great

activities. I loved it. Do you look

at geeky boys differently? The guys

on the show became really close

friends. And my geek came to my

birthday. My geek came to my

birthday. Your partner. My partner.

And Nathan gets to hang out with

pretty girls now. That is the upside

of the show. Lovely to meet both of

you. Great to meet you. I am glad it

went well and you had a ball. Just ahead - should kids be made to wear helmets for sport?

We are going to talk to Nuala

We are going to talk to Nuala and Virginia Gay will sing

Virginia Gay will sing some Christmas carols for us. You're watching Sunrise live from the Atrium at Crown. Mitre 10's got perfect gifts... to suit any budget. Assorted cooler gift sets, 39 bucks each.

Yesterday about this time we opened a phone poll asking whether you'd approve of more nudist beaches. Final voting was close - 51% of callers said no.

There's an unholy row across the Tasman. This billboard started it. That's Joseph and Mary from the bible, lying in bed. They're a bit sad and dejected. And the caption says, "Poor Joseph, God was a hard act to follow." The church says it's not supposed to be offensive.

It's supposed to provoke discussion about the origins of Christmas. So, is it humorous or heinous? Let's ask our special panel this morning - actress Virginia Gay and our very own Nuala Hafner.

Virginia, the billboard is outside an Anglican Church. it's disrespectful. The local Catholic church says it's not meant to be disrespectful. Is it inappropriate?

I'm not entirely certain that it is

a great idea to remove mystery how

mystical events happen but having a

sense of humour about the church is

a good step for the church to take.

So you are alright with it? OK. It

sounds like you got splinters in

your bottom. The whole idea is that

they are saying we forgot the real

meaning of Christmas and reflect

back on the birth of Jesus. It got

attention but I am not sure the

right attention. It reminds me of

getting the naughty email from an

uncle. This was not the most extreme

billboard. The Church hire an

advertising company. The church's

argument is that a third of Kiwis

don't have I religion and that they

need these extreme acts to bring

people and they don't need to do

that to bring people back. Does this debate refocus our thoughts back on the birth of Jesus? They

It doesn't make me think of the

birth of Christ. It makes me think

of various surroundings, various

practicalities surrounding Jesus Christ. Olympic gold medallist Stephanie Rice is looking for a boyfriend. The star of the pool at the Beijing Games says finding love is tough. Steph says her high profile makes it difficult to form relationships. She reckons it's hard to tell if boyfriends like her or just the idea of being in a relationship with Stephanie Rice. Virginia, you're a well-known actress - do find it hard to judge people's motives?

Yes, that is quite a reasonable

response. She is frequently linked

to people in the press and that is

quite hilarious to her. If you

linked to more than four people I

think you should start dropping

names. "

night and on and on about getting

it. He says you are not. She split from fellow swimmer Eamon Sullivan just before the Beijing Olympics. Then there was talk of a fling with American superfish Michael Phelps and rugby league star David Williams. Nuala, what type of bloke should she be looking for?

Heaven forbid I give boy advice to

anyone. I can't find a boy friend

myself, let alone a swimming

superstar. I think Virginia is

right. It is a problem. I had the

pleasure of going out with Stephanie

Thousands of Aussie travellers breathe a sigh of relief as a court stops British Airways cabin crew walking off the job. But pain for up to 600,000 commuters as bus drivers refuse to work on one of the busiest days of the year. Then, no helmet, no play - Is it time for all kids to wear head protection during contact sports? In 10 minutes, the real facts on injury rates and the push for change. And the new-look Rogue Traders perform together for the very first time, as this Friday edition of Sunrise continues live from the Atrium at Crown in Melbourne. Right now, it's news time on Sunrise. In breaking news - five people have been shot in New York.

The shooting took place in Manhattan's Upper West Side. The condition of the victims and the circumstances are not clear. We'll bring you more information as it comes to hand.

Several sheds and houses were lost in Sydney

Several sheds and houses were lost in Sydney and southern New South

Wales. We cross live to rural fire

commissioner - in fact we will have

that later. We will see what we can do about that. First it was postal workers, then Qantas engineers. Now, New South Wales bus drivers have called strike action in the lead-up to Christmas. No Government buses will run in Sydney or Newcastle today with commuters forced onto trains, ferries or into the car. Bus drivers are angry over a breakdown in pay negotiations. The Premier has asked them to reconsider. It is going to be a major inconvenience to the people of Sydney an inconvenience that is unwarranted. Bus tickets will be recognised on the rail and ferry systems. Designated bus lanes will be open to cars to ease traffic congestion. A planned 12-day strike over Christmas by British Airways cabin crew has been blocked by the High Court in London. The strike was due to start later today but the court has granted the airline an injunction, saying the union's ballot was invalid. British Airways says it's delighted for its customers. The union is planning to appeal. A controversial billboard depicting Mary and Joseph in bed together has been vandalised in New Zealand, igniting an unholy debate. The billboard was erected by a progressive Anglican church and shows the couple looking to the sky. The original caption, which read "Poor Joseph, God was a hard act to follow" was covered with brown paint shortly after it went up, with critics arguing it's in bad taste. We're trying to lampoon the idea of a literal male God who somehow, it's assumed, impregnated Mary. The church said it wanted to encourage discussion about the story of Jesus's birth at Christmas time. Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered part of the tomb of Cleopatra in the Mediterranean Sea. A 9-tonne, 2m granite tower attached to the tomb was removed from under water in the Alexandria harbour

using a giant crane. This is very important piece because it belonged to the history of Alexandria. It reminds us of the history of Cleopatra. The tower was part of the entrance to a temple of Isis, the fertility goddess, and was connected to Cleopatra's tomb. The team plans to excavate the main tomb relics next May. Paris has woken up under a rare blanket of snow with the city's famous Arc de Triomphe almost hidden to the naked eye. The view of the Eiffel Tower is much the same. Severe weather is causing havoc on the roads right across Europe.

In Belgrade, it's been snowing non-stop for 50 hours, with temperatures hovering around -10 degrees Celsius. The big freeze has raised hopes of a white Christmas in many European cities. In finance news: A stunning century from West Indies captain Chris Gayle has ignited the 3rd Test at the WACA. The visitors will resume today at 2/204. Gayle bludgeoned the Aussie attack in a breathtaking display of power hitting that included one of the biggest sixes ever seen at the WACA.

COMMENTATOR: That's a big six straight down the ground. On the roof. Gayle bought up the fifth fastest century in Test history with another towering six. Sulieman Benn, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson were charged with bringing the game into disrepute for several ugly incidents. 3-time world surfing champion Stephanie Gilmour has sounded an ominous warning to her world tour rivals. Gilmour wrapped up her third straight world crown in Hawaii last week and is adamant her best surfing is in front of her.

There is so much room for

improvement. Like, the ocean is just

forever changing and I love watching

the boys surf and they are miles

ahead of us. Got a lot of work to do. Gilmore is the first surfer

to win world titles every year they have competed. Melbourne captain Kevin Muscat will become just the second Australian to play 500 league games when the Victory host arch rivals Sydney FC tomorrow night at Etihad Stadium. The veteran admits it's a match he's desperate to win after Sydney humbled the Victory 3-0 at home in October. And in one of the more staggering decisions handed down by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, French tennis star Richard Gasquet has escaped a long-term suspension for testing positive to cocaine. The World Anti-Doping Agency wanted Gasquet banned for two years but the court accepted his claim that he consumed the cocaine by kissing a woman in a Miami nightclub. Soon on Sunrise - should all kids wear helmets for sport? But first, let's check in with Fifi.

Thank you, Nat. Here I am where all

the action will take place tomorrow

night for Carols in the Domain.

Great stars and a great thing to do

with the family. Of course being

broadcast live on Channel 7 from

8:30 tomorrow night. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Keep cool this summer with a ceiling fan from Beacon. Fan sale on now. Around Queensland:

showers for Cairns. Mostly fine for Townsville. Blue skies for Toowoomba and Logan. Across New South Wales: a thunderstorm in Bourke. Showers in Dubbo. Rain about for Canberra. Sydney will have scattered showers. Around Victoria: early showers for Mildura. Sunny in Bendigo. Rain in Melbourne. Across Tassie: mainly fine in Launceston and Swansea. Hobart will have showers. Around South Australia: wet in Mt Gambier. Partly cloudy for Port Lincoln and Ceduna. Across the Northern Territory: rain for the Alice. Storms in Katherine.

Darwin will have an afternoon storm. Around WA: cloudy for Bunbury. Sunny in Kalgoorlie. Perth will have a cloudy day.

I will have more weather for you

from the Domain. We know sport is great for kids' overall health and development but the fun carries the risk of injury.

It sparked debate whether kids

should wear something like this. Aussie Rules is associated with nearly a third of sport-related head injuries for children. With so many kids playing Aussie Rules here, that's hardly a surprise. Dr Mark Stokes is from Kidsafe. Good morning. Would you like to see helmets for all contact sport? From kids' perspective, yes. We like to see them wears these helmets. In all contact sport snz Yes, because when young children suffer a head injury, it will affect them for a long time and affect them for a lock time. How do they recover from a head injury? They are rough and tumble. The younger they are the better they will find ways to

compensate for them. Older children, 10, 12, 13, 14-year-olds don't recover as well, where younger children, 5, 6, 7-year-olds they do recover. Yet, you don't want your child to suffer a head injury at all. Are there sports that we tend to see head injuries? Footy. Rules for head injuries and we applaud the AFL for that. AFL is a high risk sport and rugby and Australians love their football. We want to see the kids on the playing field, how do we

best do that? We do that by

encouraging the clubs that all the

players will wear a helmet. That

prevents one child being picked on. If prevents one child being picked on.

If everyone is wearing a helmet, it

is safe and it creates a culture

Every child under 12 or 13 wears a helmet?

helmet? We like to see

responsibility taken and there is

much more to injury prevention than

a rule here or there. It involves

smart visuals and he we want clubs

to say all clubs wear helmets and

take a vigilant attitude to their kids.

kids. Mark, you would like to see -

you would like to see a few of these

under the tree. Yes. Does this billboard go too far? It shows Joseph and Mary from the bible lying in bed, both are looking sad and dejected. The caption underneath reads, "Poor Joseph. God was a hard act to follow." The church says

it's not supposed to be offensive but to provoke discussion. I think most Christians don't take it literalistically like that. The sign has now been vandalised but the church says it will be replaced. There's no doubt the sign has polarised debate, even within the Church. We're joined by Reverend Howard Langmead from St John's, West Brunswick and Reverend Guy Mason from the City on a Hill Church.

Good morning. Howard, how did you react when you saw the billboard?

I thought it was way up there. I was

confronted and I laughed. I think

the church has achieved its goal.

It's got you and me and everyone

do you think it is funny? I think it

distasteful and it does distract from the real

virgin birth. God came into a human

womb. It is very confronting, very

earthy. It is very much about sexual

ending the marriage with Mary. There

were issues that Mary had with God.

I find it amazing powerful Do we

need shock tactics? I think they

better ideas. Is the church running

out of ideas? Check our Guy's church

see both of you:

Good to chat. Talk to you soon. Still ahead - Virginia Gay joins Australian Girls Choir for a special Christmas performance. That's coming up at 7:50. Then, we'll catch up with some of our favourite stars from 'Home and Away' and 'Packed to the Rafters'.

And which stars and ordinary Aussies made the cut? We'll take a look at the most intriguing people of 2009, on Sunrise.

You really do forget how much you've done. They were the moments we'll never forget. Can I be on your show forever now? Now, prepare for our next chapter - an all-new Sunrise from January 25. Sunrise brought to you by Jetstar - Australia's low-fares airline. Now flying to 20 destinations across the country.

someone to pass his used scripts to. She is gorgeous. The Tiger Woods scandal is having an odd effect on the memorabilia market. The management consulting company, Accenture, dropped him as its public face. And a southern California company

Has things snapped up off the

shelves. Let's take a closer look at that. Some of the hottest toys this holiday season - Zhu Zhu Pets, Care Bears, Transformers. This one is going to Boston. And Tiger Woods? Carlsbad toy distributor John Orozco bought 44,000 of these Tiger Woods figures one month before news of the sex scandal broke.

In the beginning, it was really slow. They were just trickling out of here. Now he's shipping thousands of them. This one is going to New Jersey. Ranging from $10 to $20, Orozco ships them after they are purchased through amazon.com Capitalising on the crisis wasn't something he planned, but hopes the hype continues past the gift-giving season.

We thought it was going to be bad, as soon as the scandal happened because we've had Kobe Bryant stuff, Michael Vick stuff in the past

and it's been terrible. This has been the first athlete that had a problem that we've been able to sell their product.

It is brilliant. Up to five people have been shot, at least two fatally in a gun massacre in New York City. The shooting has happened in an apartment building in Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Some of the victims are believed to be members of the same family.

More news on that as we get it. Sydney bus commuters will have to find other transport today after drivers called a snap strike over pay negotiations.

Bus tickets can be used on trains and ferries and the Government will open bus lanes to all drivers in a bid to ease congestion. Premier Kristina Keneally says the strike is unnecessary.

It will be an inconvenience to workers trying to get to their job on time, to parents trying to do last-minute Christmas shopping and to partygoers who want to get home safely. The Government has offered the workers a 6% pay rise over two years. New South Wales firefighters hope to make the most of cool conditions this weekend

as they battle dozens of blazes across the State. Late yesterday, a fire came within metres of homes at Londonderry in north-western Sydney. A caravan and several sheds were lost

before a cool change brought much-needed rain. Freakiest experience I've ever had. It was horrific, pretty horrific. I don't wanna see it again. In southern New South Wales, a 9,000-hectare blaze continues to burn at Gerogery, near Albury where at least four homes have been lost. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has ordered delegates

at the Copenhagen summit to put aside their differences and agree on a plan to tackle climate change. It's hoped a deal can be salvaged by the end of the conference tomorrow when US President Barack Obama arrives in Denmark. Mr Rudd says the world will be letting down its little children if the talks come to nothing.

Thousands of travellers around the world have been left stranded after Scotland's biggest airline collapsed.

The West Indies will resume this morning at 2/214, 306 runs behind Australia's first innings in the third Test at the WACA. On a fiery day when Sulieman Benn, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson were charged for bringing the game into disrepute, Chris Gayle continued the fireworks

with a remarkable innings. The Windies skipper's 70-ball century was the fifth quickest in Test history. COMMENTATOR: What a way to bring up a century! Chris Gayle has played an absolute blinder. Doug Bollinger finally ended Gayle's knock on 102. Jarryd Hayne has called on the NRL to do more to stop its elite players from switching codes.

Hayne signed a 3-year contract extension with Parramatta yesterday but will consider the huge money on offer in other codes in the future. Lleyton Hewitt has been rated the third best player of the decade by the governing body of men's tennis. Not surprisingly, Roger Federer took out the top spot ahead of great rival Rafael Nadal.

That is great with Lleyton.

Enjoy. Have a safe trip home. Now, here's Beretts.

'Packed to the Rafters' has had an unbelievable season.

It's one of the nation's most popular TV shows and next year looks even bigger and better.

For more on what we can expect,

we're joined by Zoe Ventoura who plays Mel Bannon. Welcome.

Welcome to our special Christmas

morning. It is beautiful. Zoe, when the season finished, your character, Mel, had just become hitched to Ben Rafter.

It has been quite a year. Yes, huge.

Every year has been huge. We are

grateful that people love it and

hopefully we can keep going on until

peel love us. You got your real

family but do you miss your Rafter

family? I do! There are a lot of late-night

late-night calls and people go and

do stuff because there is a big

break. You share the house with Carb

owe and Ben. Are they real boys

boys? Yes. The worst. Hard to

believe but it is great. What are

you doing for Chrissy? Head down to

see my brother and a lot of eating

and reading. We are all huge Rafter

fans. What is coming up next year? I

can't tell you. I am dying to get

back in January because at the end

of production they don't tell us.

You get as big a surprise as us?

Yes. Stay with us. Still ahead - two of the famous faces from 'Dancing with the Stars' will drop by for a chat. Plus, we'll also see who are 2009's most intriguing people.

But next, Virginia Gay and the Australian Girls Choir perform live here at the Atrium at Crown.

Live music on Sunrise brought to you by BigPond music.
