Luxury Escapes: The World's Best Holidays has announced former Bachelor star, Matty J, is joining Sophie Falkiner as the co-host of the Network 10 travel show.
The award-winning 13-part travel series, produced by Australia's largest luxury holiday site, Luxury Escapes in partnership with Singapore Airlines, returns for a fourth season. The new season which airs 6pm, Saturdays from 13 July on Network 10, will see Matty J join Sophie Falkiner as they explore 19 destinations – from vibrant New York to the endless landscapes of South Africa and the desert dunes of Abu Dhabi.
A household favourite, Matty J rose to fame as The Bachelor and since then has amassed over 200,000 Instagram fans who follow his travel, relationships, fitness and most recently, fatherhood-related posts.
Matty says, "I'm such an avid traveller and always ready to explore the next destination, so partnering with Luxury Escapes was a natural fit and an exciting opportunity."
"Working with Luxury Escapes has been such a great opportunity. Not only was I able to fully immerse myself in a destination as the host, I really got to be hands-on with the crew to capture the best of the amazing destinations we visited. To top it off, I became a first time dad halfway through filming the season!"
The hosts will visit coveted hotels and restaurants whilst enjoying a range of bucket-list experiences, all captured by camera partner Olympus and supported by Mastercard. The series, much like LuxuryEscapes.com, is guaranteed to fuel Australia's wanderlust, enticing viewers to travel near and far, from the comfort of their home.
Each destination featured on the series will be matched with unbeatable deals online. Revered hotels, luxurious river and ocean cruises and spectacular railway journeys will all be included for holidaymakers to relive the experience themselves.
Cameron Holland, Chief Executive Officer at Luxury Escapes commented, "Season 4 promises to be bigger, bolder and better than ever. I'm delighted to be partnering with Network Ten for its return, with a fresh new host line-up, incredible cinematography, plus new and up and coming destinations!"
"We'll be featuring a new suite of hotels, cruises and tours, showcasing the best of our own backyard here in Australia and around the world. I'm looking forward to once again inspiring our audience with new ideas and incredible experiences."
