Grant Denyer bounces back from axing

Gold Logie nominee Grant Denyer has a new gig on the Ten Network

Gold Logie nominee Grant Denyer has a new show following the axing of Family Feud.

He will front Network Ten's Game of Games show, hoping to emulate the American success of the series under talk show host and comedian Ellen De Generes.

"Ellen is an idol of mine, so to land this opportunity makes me so excited I'm dizzy," he said.

"It's wildly fun and something completely brand new and different for Australia."

On Game of Games, contestants undertake "ridiculous challenges" for big cash prizes.

Ten pulled Denyer's Family Feud last month after four years due to falling ratings.

But he still managed to be nominated last weekend for several Logie awards, including the big prize of the Gold Logie.
