Right across Australia,
this is Sunrise on Seven. From Brekky Central,
Kochie and Mel.

An inquest has opened
into the death of a British nurse after the royal prank call tragedy. in the nurse quarters at London's
Prince Edward VII Hospital. There were no family members
at the inquest. They are grieving and they need to be supported
and they need all the facts. Back home, Sydney radio station
2DayFM has been forced to hire
24-hour security after staff received death threats
over the tragedy. At least three South Australian
women have been diagnosed
with breast cancer after being cleared
by digital mammograms. The women came forward following
revelations there could be
a glitch in the system. There was an unusual drop
in detection rates between September 2010
and June this year with 100 fewer cases than usual. If there has been an error then there may well be an avenue
for compensation. Six people have been arrested
following a raid in Melbourne's south-west overnight. After months of intelligence work, police have seized guns, drugs
and cash from a house at Kealba.

, The suspects are being questioned by police.

Parts of Perth and Western
Australia's southern regions are mopping up after days of thunderstorms
and heavy rain. 40 properties were flooded at Collie
after more than 150mm of rain fell in just 24 hours. Local businesses were hit hard and the velodrome became
an aqua park. It was more interesting than
scary. The Weather Bureau says
a slow-moving storm front moving over warm ocean temperatures
is to blame. Former 'Hey Dad..!' star
Robert Hughes has spent his first night
in Sydney at a hotel instead of a jail cell after being extradited from the UK. The 63-year-old faced court briefly
yesterday, charged with 11 child sex offences
dating back to the 1980s. Bail was set at $50,000
paid for by his wife. She's very anxious
and she's very upset. She's under a lot of stress
and a lot of pressure. They are a very close couple,
very dedicated. Hughes has surrendered his passport,
is forbidden to go near airports, and can't approach
his alleged victims. Google maps is available
for the iPhone again, after the bungled release of Apple's
own built-in navigation system. Apple was forced to issue
a public apology after removing the service because its own maps
were plagued with problems. Google Maps can now be downloaded
as a standalone app. The company says it's more powerful
and reliable than the version that used to come built into the phone's
operating system. Coming up on Sunrise -
lucky to be alive. The woman who spent almost
a week trapped in a snow storm, before being rescued. But first, here's Kochie. In finance news: , Retail sales up. Despite all that, Wall Street is trading about 70 points lower at the moment. That's because there is still no talks on the US budget and with that fiscal cliff looming on 1 January, people are getting a bit nervous. Good news in Europe though, Greece got $ in Europe though, Greece got $40 billion in bail out money. They have been hanging out for that since June.

Some great news
for Australian employment. Latest figures show economy-wide
employment rose in 11 of the 19
industry sectors. Craig James is at Commsec. Morning. Craig, which industries
saw the most growth?

Well, Kochie, it is quite surprisingment we had something like 58,000 jobs created in the last three months. That's pretty great in itself. But something like 80% of the jobs are in the transport area, whereabouts, basically, we are buying goods on-line, so it's basically postal and courier type services. They were up around 13,000. And all the goods that come to Australia are stored in warehouses. That was up around 12,000. It's the on-line sales boom. There was some losses, very much in terms of the media sector, those sort of job losses around about 15,000. We are getting more and more or of our information on-line, rather than traditional sources. Jobs are being created and created without the help of the mining sector. Mining sector jobs went down by 8,000. We can stand on our own two feet, even if we haven't got the mining sector. Jobs are being created and they are just different in different places. I know you are going on Christmas holidays, so thank holidays, so thank you for all your help. To you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. Merry Christmas to every there Merry Christmas to every there well. He is a champion. It's great to have him as part of the Sunrise team. He will be back, bigger and better next year, more finance, we just can't get enough.

A substantially increased NRL
salary cap is set to be finalised before Christmas after another marathon round
of negotiations at Rugby League Central. It's understood the
Players Association has agreed to a $5.8 million cap for 2013 with the minimum wage to rise

Daniel Popovic will take a 2-shot lead
into today's second round of the Australian PGA Championship
at Coolum. Geoff Ogilvy's right in contention

locals who were going toe-to-toe.

Not a great time if you do have to spend some time in hospital. We are going to spend some time at one of the country's busiest hosptials, Sydney children's hospital.

is positively different to the big rental car companies. Go with the underdog and save. An inquest into the death
of the British nurse duped by the royal prank call
tragedy has opened with tragic details
about her final moments. It's heard Jacintha Saldanha
was found hanged at London's Prince Edward hospital three days after she answered
the call. Juliet Bremner reports.

, yanl inquest heard that she was hanged. The coroner was told that nurses who worked with her, discovered her body in the accommodation block, she used while on shift at the hospital. A police officer told the inquest that three notes had been found. Two in the room where Mrs Saldanha's body was discovered, another amongst her possessions. He didn't disclose their contents but he did say, taken along with email, they should help to explain why she had killed herself. There was no mention of the hoax call made by two Australian radio presenters who have since spoken of their devastation. But it is known that Mrs Saldanha answered that call and put it through to the ward where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for severe morning sickness. Her husband and two teenage children who visited the hospital last week choose not to attend today's hearing, instead asking the MP, Keith Vas to represent them. They are a wonderful family, they are a close knit family and they need to be supported. They are grieving. They need all the facts. I think that's what they want. Whatever they are, they want all the

It's good to have your company this Friday morning.

A real-life Doogie Howser
is making headlines in Adelaide. A 17-year-old boy
has been posing as a doctor at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and then bragging about it
on Facebook. He dresses up in medical scrubs,
complete with name badge and stethoscope and hangs around the hospital,
pretending to be a clinician. Apparently, he even checks out
the patients' charts. He's been spotted three times since
October but police say he hasn't commited
any offences, so there's nothing
they can do about it. , I hope he grows up to be a good doctor too. I agree. Maybe thinks his own work experience. If you are putting it on your Facebook page, maybe you will get

How's this for a joke. A 21-year-old from Sydney
was left in a sticky situation when his mates decided to cover
his car in Post-It-Notes. 8,000 thousand to be exact. It took Nathan Atkins almost
half an hour to get all the Post-Its off. So tell us, what jokes have
you played on your mates? , That's a great mate prank. We had frenction friends who were getting married. We filled their car with those little balls from bean bags. For months later they were belowing back. They loved it. When I was another uni, they used to get the garbage bin, when you opened your door, it was boom. That's good. Kiddies.

New research reveals one of the most popular Christmas
presents is a gift voucher. A study from the Australian National
Retailers Association says 34% of people would prefer
to be given vouchers this season. And one in five people will be buying one for a friend
of family member. So do you buy gift cards? Or do you think it's lazy?

You hate them, do not you. I just think it takes away the Christmas spirit. To some people it's quite good for, then you can take advantage of the sales. You get double, that's good for the economy. But You are not thinking about them. If they hate what you give You shouldn't hate. It's all about giving, not receiving. Or re gristing. Or re Grist

with breast cancer after they were cleared
by digital mammograms. The women came forward

I have to tell you, this is quite a ride, baby up until now, I know you thought I was the hardest person to buy gifts for, next year will be a nightmare. It's a surreal experience, I am a kid from a experience, I am a kid from a suburb called Waroonga in the northern suburbs of Sydney. You don't know it. My brush with Hollywood growing up, apart from Don's video store up the road, was my father was an accountant his entire life for Pricewaterhouse. They used to bring on the at conditions, on to the Academy Awards with their briefcase that stand there for like 10 seconds. My father had a business meeting with one of those guys, that's was as close as it got. This is cleat xli is is cleat xli surreal. I have so many people to thank. I am incredibly grateful. First of all I want to thank the chamber of commerce, I want to think the city of Los Angeles. I believe this is the 20487th star on the Walk of Fame. However, apart from Lassie, I am the only one to get it for the same character in 15 movie, so... character in 15 movie, so.... By the way, guy, thank you for today because personally I don't believe in the my and calendar but enthusiastic for scheduling it for today and not the 21st. I do not know if you know this. I didn't know. This know. This is not just best towed people lucky by myself by the city or the chamber of commerce, it is nominated for by fans. I think it's one of the coolest thing about the star, the Walk of Fame. My fans down here, who run Jackman's landing pad, 8 years ago nominated me. I have been campaigning for eight years. It's been long, it has been a long journey, yeah. But anyway, I want to thank you. I have the greatest fans in the world. I know that's an easy thing to say for actors but I am - I can literally tell you from can literally tell you thing to say for actors but I am - I can literally tell you from my experience, many occasion, a show called the boy from Oz, which looked like it was not going to last more than 6 weeks on Broadway, was totally a hit because of the fans. They decided it was going to be a hit and they hit and they coming and coming. I have the greatest fans and I

have the greatest fans and I don't take it lightly or take you for granted. Thank you so much for all you do. I have received support. I have received friendship from people way before I deserved it or earned it, not only professionally but personally. Many of them are here today. It usually goes against an a being tore grain but anyway, I am lucky, I lucky, I have Geoffrey, Jim, Ron, Eric, I have Adam, people here from the major studios. I have actors here, Cameron Mac intorb who gave me a job, 12 or 13 years ago in the West End. Director, Tom Hooper, without whoom, I would never have been able to pull off what we pulled off. You are an inspiration. I know it's easy, and you hear people thank youing their team it's easy, and you hear people thank
youing their team, their a little, when I came to Hollywood, I was about 30 years old. I wasn't a kid. I felt I understood people a little bit. I had no idea, I met 1,000 people. And three of those people I met are still with me today, 15 years later. My whole approach to meeting them and trying to decide who I was going to work with was the Aussie good bloke rule. I had no idea whether anyone could do their job. If they seemed like a good bloke, if they seemed like they were true to their word, if they seemed like they like true to their word, if they seemed like they were general Ryan. I just lucked out, not only are lucked out, not only are they good blokes, they are unbelievable at their job, Patrick, hord, Jason, you guys their job, Patrick, hord, Jason, you guys, I couldn't have done it without you so thank you so much without you so thank you so without you so thank you so much. It means the world to me today, and I know what my fellow cast members and directors are going through on a publicity tour, the fact that you guys got up here means the world to me. Most of all, you guys around the edge, thank you. Wait. Best until last. None of this, Deb, none of this would have been possible and certainly none of this would have been rewarding or meaningful to me if not for my family. I don't drag them along it too many things.

Now to the new Australian
supermarket taking on American rival Costco. Value Depot opens
in Brisbane tomorrow with plans to roll out wholesale
supermarkets across the country in the coming year. But shoppers wanting to find
a bulky bargain will need
an Australian Business Number before obtaining free membership. So is it worth it for consumers? Ingrid Just from 'Choice'
joins me now. Ingrid, good morning. Is it all it's cracked up to be? , Look, I don't know. You know, you can get fined if you are just purchasing or applying for an ABN and you are not entitled to it. I think it's just over $ think it's just over $6,000 but for small businesses who are doing some extra shopping for perhaps their neighbours and also their own gross about ri items, about ri about neighbours and also their own gross neighbours and also their own Grose ri items, but they may stock up. Why did they do this, why the ABN? This is interest, their background is with Campbell cash and carry. This is morphing into this Value Depot store. It's really trying to expand their footprint and compete with the Costcoes but you have to again, like Campbell's Cash and Carry, have that business background in order to buy here. Compare the cost here with Costco. Look, we haven't seen the actual figures yet. The first store rolls out in Eagle Farm. They are planning to roll more out. I think you can - it's fair to say that they are going to have comparable prices. Costco's massive though. You know, it's right around the world. So their distribution and their logistics, their footprint, their economies of scale are huge, trying to take on cost co-is a pretty big ask.. Is this where retailing is going? IKEA stores are getting massive now, we are getting supermarket, massive, is that where it's all going. This is an interesting thing. You have to have a lot of storage at home. You have to be prepared to drive to these places to buy huge big jars of Milo and lots of washing powder. Some consumers aren't that organised or have that much storage or aren't willing to travel that far, that often. So, as to whether it is going to provide real competition to the rest of the supermarket sector, I am not sure. The roll out stores quite quickly because of the Campbell's background, they have got background, they have got presence there, this is about competing for the small stores, that's probably where they will get most of their customers. If you don't have an ABN, can you join anyhow but pay a fee? Is there a different level. No, no, you have to have an ABN and you have to prove that you are a small business. You and I can't necessarily get an AB necessarily get an ABN, that's our entry into the store. Small business owners could do bulk shopping for their star. Doing a co-op. Are you thinking of something yourself. I'm thinking that will keep the staff

Right now it's time for the news
of the day. An inquest into the death
of the British nurse duped by the royal prank call
tragedy has opened with tragic details
about her final moments. It's heard Jacintha Saldanha
was found hanged at London's Prince Edward hospital The inquest begins for British nurse
Jacintha Saldanha in a bid to find out how
and why she died. If it was you or I,
we'd want to know everything. There were no
family members present - too distraught to attend. They were represented
by MP Keith Vaz. They are grieving,
and they need to be supported and they need all the facts. The inquest heard there
were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Ms Saldanha's death three days after she was duped
by two Australian radio hosts. The coroner's office said she was found hanged
in her nurses' quarters. She left three notes. The grief is also being felt in
Jacintha's hometown of Bangalore, where hundreds have gathered
for a candlelight vigil. Since Jacintha has had
a very mysterious death, we would like
a thorough investigation into this. British police have confirmed where the Media Watchdog
has launched its own official investigation. Radio station 2DayFM could lose
its license if it's found to have breached radio
codes of practice.

And if you or someone you know
needs help contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Back home,
Sydney radio station 2DayFM has been forced to hire 24-hour
security after staff received death threats
over the prank call tragedy. News Limited reports there's been
a security lockdown at the station with up to a dozen staff forced
to move to hotels. It's believed police are
investigating a letter sent from South Australia carrying threats against host
Michael Christian. At least three
South Australian women have been diagnosed
with breast cancer after earlier being cleared
by digital mammograms. The women came forward following
revelations there could be a glitch
in the system. If there has been an error
then there may well be an avenue for compensation. There was an unusual drop
in detection rates between September 2010
and June this year with 100 fewer cases than usual. Six people have been arrested
following a drug raid in Melbourne's south-west. After two months of
intelligence work, police busted the crime syndicate seizing a number of guns, drugs
and cash from a house at Kealba. The suspects are being questioned
by police.

New South Wales Police
are searching for a man who ran from officers after being pulled over for a random
breath test early this morning. The man bolted from his car
when it was stopped on the Gore Hill Freeway
at Artarmon. Officers and police dogs have spent
the morning wading through a swamp for clues. An innocent bystander who was
in the same area was bitten on the backside
by a police dog. Opposition Leader Tony Abbott
is standing by Mal Brough despite a court ruling he was
involved in a conspiracy against Peter Slipper. A Federal Court judge ruled
Mr Brough tried to destroy the former Speaker's reputation

endorsed by the Liberal National Party. He's been quite transparent

Some great stats out yesterday, on where the most jobs are in Australia. It might surprise you. The biggest employer is in the health care industry, retail, then construction, manufacturing is still out fourth biggest employer despite all the doom and gloom but where is the jobs growth been in November? It has been in transport, postal and warehousing. That's because it's the industry that is affected by on-line shopping. So, 47,000 new jobs in that construction is up. Manufacturing ad jobs despite all the doom and gloom about manufacturing. Retail added jobs, despite all the doom and gloom about retail so that's the facts of where the jobs growth are which is really fascinating. So, don't believe all the headlines and the doom and gloom, there are still jobs being created, sometimes in different places to where you think. Time for sport now, here is

Australian captain Michael Clarke has urged his young players
to step up in today's series opener against
Sri Lanka in Hobart. Veteran Mike Hussey's a certain
starter after overcoming a head cold, but Mitchell Johnson's
test career is back on hold after he was named twelfth man. It's a nice problem to have when
you've got 12 blokes that really want to play
and have performed well. But unfortunately,
someone has to miss out. In the Big Bash last night, a 4 off the last ball clinched
a thrilling 3-wicket win for Brisbane Heat over Callum Ferguson made a valiant
attempt to stop the boundary but came up just short.

Love to see those shots, Stuart, send them in when you get a chance. I know you are not busy this morning smted Let's check in with grants. He is at the Children's Hospital. Just trying to spread a little Christmas cheer, can you imagine being in hospital for Christmas. We are coming in with our friends, toys are us just to say G'day to some of the kids who will be spending Christmas at here. And the staff, people like Leah, just finishing a ten hour shift. She is one of the many incredible angels of this earth who do dedicate their lives to looking after others. It's really quiet here in the children's ward, we might just - I just want to introduce you to someone. This is Hala. She is what the nurses call a freak flier here. She is in and out with a few breathing problems but she gets to go home for Christmas. She is always in good spirits. Magic, always awake the easterliest. You are a bouncing been. She comes in regularly? Probably a month at a time. Just on and off.It's good. You get to know them a bit better. Are they having any luck tracking down the problem? Slowly but you can't help Slowly but you can't help fall in love with them. I just saw another nurse say good by to one of the patients, that she is looking after for some time. They have such an attachment. She put a flesh flower on top of the card for another beautiful little baby.

An inquest into the death
of the nurse who was prank called
by radio station 2DayFM has opened with tragic details
of her final moments. It's heard Jacintha Saldanha
was found hanged just three days after
she took the phone call. UK correspondent Martin Frizell
is in London. Martin, good morning. Martin, what has the inquest heard?

Well, as you said, it was opened and adjourned. That's the way things, adjourned until 26 March. Very matter of fact. The family were not in court. They are still grieving as you can understand. What the coroner did ware Mrs Saldanha was found hangsed but there were some marks on her wrist. They also found three notes that she had left, two beside where she was found and another in her belongsing. They didn't say what was on those notes. Police are also looking into emails she sent and also they are also they are tracing and listening to the telephone conversations she made in those made in those three days between the prank call and her being found dead. You shouldn't add anything or suppose anything from the fact that nothing was read out from those letters. They will be part of evidence and that will all come out in due course. Probably in March when the court resumes again. We have been getting reports here that while the letters were not disclosed, a comment was made by the police that in none of the letters was there any mention of the prank call. Now, is that right or not? Well, I've not heard Well, I've not heard that to be honest. It wasn't read out in court. We can only report what was in open court. Maybe someone has got that from police sources. The police said they are in touch with new New South Wales police and an interesting quote from the detective in court day he wanted to talk to police in New South Wales, to decide the best way of putting evidence before the court. Do they take court. Do they take statements from the 2Day FM staff or do they ask them to come to London to attend before the coroner. The lawyer did come out, he is quite angry with 2Day FM. He says he has written to them and haven't heard back. There has been no written apologise, no attempt to travel to the UK to express con tricks. So he is suggesting that the family would like someone from the radio station to fly here and to say sorry in person. So, that's what he wants and that's what the family wants because the radio station has apologised here formally and the two radio journalists involved have said that yes, if the family requested a meeting, they would do it but certainly wouldn't do it without a request. You are saying a request has been made. Yeah, that's he September represents the family. He says no-one from the radio station has said sorry to them personally. A no attempt has been travel to the UK to express con tricks. That would suggestion they would like someone to travel to the UK to meet the family. All right, Martin. Thank you for

And if you or someone you know
needs help, contact Lifeline on 13 11 14. The radio station behind
the prank call has been forced to hire additional
security after receiving a number
of death threats. Sunrise correspondent Edwina
Bartholomew is at 2DayFM in Sydney. What can you tell us
about these threats?

Well, Mel, police have confirmed they have received at least one threat directed at the radio DJ, that letter has been handed to eastern suburbs local area commander. They are investigating. There are also reports of another letter received yesterday and sent from South Australia, which contains the words " the words "Bullets Are out there with your name on it." They were directed to Michael Christian. So they are taking this very seriously, both police and the radio station. So seriously they are doing everything they can to protect their staff now, aren't they? That's right. At least 10 executives have been given 24 hour bodyguards and a dozen staff moved into safe houses as well as not only these athletes houses as well as not only these athletes that have been received, they are worried as the inquest continues and more detail emerge of the circumstances surrounding the death, that the anger in the community will increase. So these security precautions will remain in place for quite some time. Just on the point that Martin made there, the radio DJs have made it clear, that if they are required to appear at that coronial inquest in the UK, they are more than willing to go, Mel. Thank you very much for the

Accused wife killer Gerard
Baden-Clay is back in court today. His second application for bail
will be heard in the Supreme Court in Brisbane and if the court rules
in his favour, it means he could be home
for Christmas. Baden-Clay has already had a bid
for bail refused over his wife Allison's murder, with the judge declaring
him a flight risk. But his lawyers believe they will be able to prove
his circumstances have changed. I'm joined now by our Sunrise
correspondent Michelle Tapper. Good morning.

Good morning, Nat, Baden-Clay's lawyer will argue that there is no evidence which is inconsistent with the Crown's case and which wasn't presented during the first bail application. He will also argue that the brief of evidence against Baden-Clay does not support the claims made by the Crown's case. Now, as you mentioned, his first bail application was denied because the judge declared that he was a flight risk, given the fact that he could face a mandatory life sentence if found Gilly. That's despite the fact that his lawyer raised $ fact that his lawyer raised $500,000 bond. I would think today's argument would have to be very persuasive and strong indeed to have the judge change his mind. He has been in gaol for a few months now? Yeah, he has been in gaol for six months, since he was arrested mid-June, over his wife's murder. That was about two months after she went missing. She has been in his own cell at the correctional centre since then, he is not due back in court until March next year for the committal hearing, Nat. Thank you for the update, Michelle, live

A 17-year-old boy
has been caught posing as a doctor at two Adelaide hospitals and then bragging about it
on Facebook. Sunrise correspondent
Amanda Bachmann is at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Amanda, tell us about this
real life Doogie Howser.

I know, it sounds unbelievable will you this kid has we know is former Saints Jones volunteer so somebody with a bit of with a bit of first-aid expertise. He has been spotted in the wards both here at the royal Adelaide hospital and at the Flinders Medical Centre, really posting as a doctor, he has a stethoscope around his neck, ID, sometimes even in scubs. We understand that he is well versed in medical jargon but if his identity is pressed that's where he identity is pressed that's where apart a bit. He has blended in very well at the hospitals. So what is the story, Amanda and what authorities are saying? He technically can he get into trouble? Well, technically he hasn't got into trouble. The health minister says that he has been spotted wandering around but he hasn't had any physical contact with the patients. The police say they have been here to the RAH and they have interviewed him but there is no evidence of criminal behaviour. Despite that, all of our public hospitals have been warned about him. His photograph has been sent out. And if he is spotted here again, there is no doubt that the health authorities will call police again to see exactly what they can do to stop this young man. Yeah, absolutely. I understand it. If he should make physical contact with a patient, posting as a doctor, that would then constitute criminal assault. It is an amazing story. 17 years old. I am intrigued to find out what he wants to do. Hopefully be a doctor. Thank you, Amanda. There you go,

The surf's up on Queensland's
South-East Coast this morning. Professional surfers are hitting
the water with high tides and big swell forecast over the next few days. Beaches at Surfers Paradise and
Palm Beach were closed yesterday. Lifeguards are asking people to take
care in the dangerous conditions. Surf patrol hours will likely extend
this weekend with big waves and hot temperatures
expected.

Pro-surfer and Channel
Seven presenter Liz Cantor is on the Gold Coast. Good morning.

What are the waves
looking like at the moment?

Oh, I think passionate surfer is probably a bit more of an appropriate title. Thank you for the wrap. The tids have dropped slightly overnight. The point breaks are just pumping from here at Snapper Rocks. Tell us about the beaches closed in some areas. Do beach goers need to be extra careful. What is the advice from the life safers? As you mentioned, two beaches were closed yesterday, palm Beach and Surfers Paradise, down on the southern end of the Gold Coast, our beaches are in good beaches are in good condition. But from Miami north, they are fragile. We have a high tide. I spoke to a lifeguard and he said he had had around 1500 swimmers at his beach which is so many people to keep an eye on for one person. So my main advice just to swim between the flags Bass our life guards do such a good job but they can't save your life unless they can see you. So remain visible. You were saying the beaches are pretty fragile, pretty fragile,er ocean is a big issue there. Now, just while we have got you, your old mate, Joel Parkinson, what a pro-surfing season he is having at the moment Don't get me started, the whole of the Gold Coast is backing him. I think it's just such an emotional world title race for so many reasons. Billabong has had a tough year, the last world tighter was Andy Irons who is the best friends of Joel Parkin sons, and he passed away tragically. He will be watching over Joel's shoulder, if there is anyone you can't underestimate, it will be Kellie Slater. Thank you, Liz for that.

You know, I don't remember growing up think, one day I want one of those. I think I hoped one day I would able to go to Hollywood, just to travel. So being here now, today with all this is amazing. I had my family here and lots of Aussies in the crowd so it has been really cool. Are you the bloke with the lot now? Yes, it's all downhill from here. I think I should retire and lock it up. Today, this week, I said to Deb, I don't know what you are going to get me for Christmas next year because this is off the because this is off get me for Christmas next year because this is off the charts.
Will you be timted to sneak back here to come back and see Just to check that Just to check that nobody has grafittied on it. A SAG nomination and a Golden Globe this morning? The thing is, I have probably been around long enough to be aware of how special it is. I remember saying to saying to Sam, you don't know better. Just remember this, this doesn't happen every time. So, I feel really grateful, mate, to have this opportunity, An Oscar may top it off? Every time I heard the word " Every time I heard the word "Oscar" I think what is my son doing. We will see. Hopefully, Hugh will receive an Oscar maybe in a couple of months, just down the road from here. Fingers crossed. Thank you, Mel, thank you, Kochie. Pleasure, Hugh. Anything you say. Yes. He is the world's nicest guy. He has been nice for so long, that has to be really him. Sometimes you think, oh, they just put it on for the cameras. He is genuinely a nice bloke. And I think his wife, Great Barrier And I think his wife, Deb is one of the coolest chicks I have ever met. She is a cool chick that says a lot about him. So they are a great family. He is always coming out. It's his dream to co-host Sunrise. He will be in Australia late next week. Is that still his dream. I have no doubt. It's my dream now. My people are talking to his people.

Oscar Pistorius, has taken on a new challenge. The double amputee has tested
his speed, taking on a race horse

a second to spare across the line. Hopefully that will do a lot
to chance the perceptions of people with disabilities
in this region. The race is promoting disability
in sport. Australian vice-captain
Shane Watson admits he's stressed about
his inability dominate with the bat in tests. Watson will head into today's
