It’s been 12 years since Osher Günsberg (formerly known as Andrew G) and James Mathison hosted Australian Idol on Channel 10 together.
Now the duo, more than a decade on, will return to the network’s prime-time slot as acting co-stars.
This month, Osher and James’ episode – believed to have been filmed in 2018 – of Drunk History Australia will finally debut on free-to-air.

James and Osher reenact the disastrous expedition – as told by the slightly-buzzed comedian and storyteller Harley Breen – of Burke and Wills.
Osher told TV Week on Monday that he and James have remained in close contact since debuting as co-hosts of Australian Idol in 2003.
‘He comes to poker every now and then,’ he claimed, but said reuniting on screen was ‘the greatest’.
Osher even praised James’ incredible acting, claiming he could have a career as a sitcom star if he wanted to pursue it.
