Other well known Australian identities taking part in the spectacular event included Bud Tingwell, Lisa McCune, the cast from Home and Away which included Amy Matthews, Jessica Tovey, Mark Furze, Kate Ritchie, and Holly Brisley, as well as Denise Drysdale, The Wiggles And Jennifer Hawkins just to name a few.
The evening began with all the glitz and glamour of the red carpet, hosted by Sonia Kruger, and then continued with the countdown of the top 20 TV moments from the past half-century as voted by the Australian public.
