In 2013, Denyer resigned as Sunrise‘s weatherman due to health concerns and, when speaking at Sunday’s award ceremony, the game show host said back then he was doubtful of his career prospects.
“I really wasn’t sure if I’d ever work again or if I wanted to,” the 40-year-old said on stage.
“I wasn’t particularly in a very good place. I wasn’t very well. I was in a bit of a hole. I was pretty sad. I was a bit lost and Family Feud came along and I was very unwell at that particular time. And Family Feud gave me a ladder out of that hole.”
