Manu Feildel raised temperatures at Channel Seven’s annual Perth Telethon over the weekend.

Home and Away star Lynne McGranger couldn’t get enough of the strip show, and was seen smiling and laughing as she touched Manu’s tummy.

The 48-year-old culinary star played up to the role of a male stripper, showing off his dance moves and flexing his muscles. 

The two stars were answering calls alongside other celebrities and notable figures to help raise money for 50 beneficiaries, including the Perth Children’s Hospital.

Manu recently admitted he thought his TV career was over when he was dropped by Channel Seven in 2020 after Plate of Origin flopped in the ratings.

He said he was shocked when he received a call from the network for this year’s season of My Kitchen Rules.

‘I thought that was it. We stopped MKR three years ago, we did Plate of Origin and then Covid happened, so I lost my job at Channel Seven,’ Manu explained.

‘I thought perhaps this is the end of my TV career, and so move on and do something else.’

‘Then suddenly I got the call from Channel Seven saying we are coming back and I was like “wow”,’ he added.

MKR had once been a ratings juggernaut for Seven, but its popularity nosedived in recent years as viewers flocked to Channel Nine’s Married At First Sight instead.

In 2020, its eleventh season drew an average of 500,000 metro viewers per episode.

At its height in 2014, the fifth season had attracted an average audience of 1.891 million across the five major cities.

The cooking show was previously hosted by Manu, Pete Evans and Colin Fassnidge.

In April it was announced that home-cooking sensation Nigella Lawson would replace Evans as a judge on a revamped new season of My Kitchen Rules.
