Judith Lucy joins Rove

judithlExciting news today with confirmation that comedian Judith Lucy is joining the Rove team as a new regular.

“We are back live this Sunday and ramping up our 10th season! Excited to announce the first of our new cast members will be Judith Lucy,” McManus wrote on Twitter.

It follows the exit of Dave Hughes and Carrie Bickmore to The 7PM Project.

Lucy’s dry humour will be a perfect replacement in the absence of Hughes.

TV Tonight understands the team has also been auditioning for a new newsreader for the show.

Meanwhile Carrie Bickmore is reportedly quitting her NOVA 100 job as Assistant News Director to concentrate on her newest TV role.

Rove is gearing up to celebrate 10 years of the show (on Nine / TEN) in September, which will include a look back at some of the show’s highlights and guests.

The show returns 8:30pm this Sunday night with guests Katy Perry, Carl Barron and Judd Apatow.


  1. Why do some people dislike Rove so much? I don’t think he is the funniest man on earth but he suits the light hearted banter for that timeslot. I like Judith Lucy so looking foward to seeing her on the show.
