Guest Intro

Today’s guest is famous for wearing many hats.

We’re talking paparazzi king, war correspondent, politician, nightclub owner, serial reality TV star, and Aussie public figure.

From humble beginnings as a newspaper photographer in Geelong, he made the move to
London, enjoying a stint at the Daily Mail before establishing the infamous paparazzi company,
Big Pictures.

Over the years he’s had roles as a venture capitalist on Dragons Den, double-deck bus
racer on Top Gear, and housemate on Celebrity Big Brother UK, but perhaps his most
memorable role of all was Mayor of Geelong from 2013 to 2016
