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.


  1. Hey Hey has done it, why cant the Late Show do it, put the full series on DVD ?
