Mike Whitney “Houston” on Sunday Night with Matty Johns

Here’s one left-of-field for you!

On Sunday Night with Matty Johns on Foxtel, Host Matty Johns had former cricketer and Who Dares Wins host Mike Whitney as a guest.

As they spoke about sports and stuff, Johns put a fairly hairy Whitney on the spot with a throwback to 1993 when he appeared on the closing act of The Late Show, where Tony Martin would instruct Mick Molloy to get a musical performer to wrap up the show, in which Mick would mis-understand the request.

In this case, it was when Whitney Houston had dominated the charts with The Bodyguard song I Will Always Love You, and Whitney (Mike) performed his own re-enactment.

(Thanks to Seb for alerting us, and apologies for the poor quality – it’s all we could access.)

Whitney, being a great sport, explains some behind the scenes moments behind the clip.

Here’s the full closing performance, from Season Two, Episode Three.
