Osher Gunsberg's drunken Logies run-in with Chris Lilley

Osher Gunsberg​ is planning on coordinating his ensemble with his date for this Sunday’s Logie Awards.

But when The Bachelor host and Hit 105 breakfast show presenter takes to the 124-metre-long red carpet at Crown Melbourne, it won’t be his glamorous wife, makeup artist Audrey Griffen, on his arm.

Fashion on the red carpet

The stars of the 2016 Logies strut their stuff, showing off the hottest trends on the red carpet.

“I’ve managed to match my outfit with my date, Matty our Bachelor,” Gunsberg told The Goss. “The only thing is he doesn’t know yet, because I snuck into his dressing room to check, so we’ll totally be twinning.”

Despite gift bags filled with $ 4500 worth of treats and performances by the likes of James Blunt and Jessica Mauboy, the best thing about Australia’s equivalent of the Oscars for Gunsberg is being surrounded by television greats.

“Seeing all of the heroes from Play School in real life, it’s like you’re going to a party with the people that raised you,” he said.

While he never seems to have a hair out of place, Gunsberg admits he’s not without his embarrassing Logies moments too.

“I once drunkenly punished Chris Lilley about how much I loved Summer Heights High. He smiled and backed away,” he laughed.

The Logies veteran (this will be his 11th show) has some sound advice for novices. 

“The doors are only open during the ad breaks. If you’re out of the room when they call your name, tough luck. Plan your toilet time carefully,” he said.

Fairfax Media’s live blog of the 2017 Logie awards will kick off at 4pm, Sunday, April 23. Channel Nine’s broadcast of the red carpet and ceremony screens from 7pm.
