Bec Hewitt has announced that after a 13-year break from television, she will be returning to our screens as the host of a new Channel Nine show.
Hewitt, a former Home and Away star, quit television to support the sporting career of her husband, tennis star Lleyton Hewitt, and to be a full-time mum for their three children: Mia, 12, Cruz, 9, Ava, 7.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Hewitt revealed she would be hosting Channel Nine’s new series, called Hello World, which will be a weekly travel series airing every Sunday.
“I think it’s the right time and the right job just to fit in with my other job of being a mum”, the 35-year-old told the publication.
The former soap actress explained that since returning home to Australia over two years ago, her attention has been on her children and re-establishing their lives in Melbourne. But she says she will “certainly enjoy the experience” of going back to work.
