This weekend Sunday Night features a profile of House Rules judge Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, plus border trouble in America and a good news story involving father & son.
The Real LLB
On Sunday Night, you finally get to meet the man behind the initials. The real LLB – the wickedly outrageous and always entertaining Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. Sunday Night’s Melissa Doyle visits LLB on his home patch, the picturesque countryside of England’s Cotswolds. She finds him holding fort in the six-bedroom stately mansion that he calls home. And it’s a full house for lunch, with his wife, Jackie, daughters Cecile and Hermione, their partners Dan and Drew and grandson, Albion. On the menu, spaghetti vongole and a very generous side of dad jokes. In no time at all LLB has become a favourite on Australian television as the ferociously blunt judge on House Rules. But Melissa uncovers a far more complex and serious side to LLB as he speaks openly and emotionally about his childhood and family.
Just over one year ago, Daniel Stirling’s future looked bleak. Close to hopeless. He’d just lost his pregnant wife, Sarah, killed by hoons in a stolen car. Miraculously, their baby boy was delivered after the crash. But Caleb was critically ill, it was touch and go for the little fighter. Through it all, father and son refused to give in. And as you’ll see, today they’re a formidable team. Living proof of what love and courage can do. And they have a special message for Australia.
Building The Wall
“Build the wall” was the rallying cry, a wall to secure the US border with Mexico. And it certainly worked – it helped elect the President of the United States, Donald Trump. Whatever you think of the idea, something must be done. And soon. As Seven’s US Bureau Chief Mike Amor discovers, this is the wild west. A land of drug smugglers, illegal immigrants, gang wars and gun-toting cowboy vigilantes. Totally out of control.
Sunday at 8.30pm on Seven.
