Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes reveals his shock diva moment on The Project that brought filming to a screeching halt

Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes has revealed he once refused to go on The Project because the show did not have a live audience.

The 51-year-old made the surprising admission during his 2Day FM’s Hughsey, Ed and Erin breakfast program on Friday.

The incident occurred during the first season of The Project back in 2009 when Hughes was an original and regular panelist.

Hughes told listeners he had raised the issue of a live audience in pre-show meetings and producers agreed to have one.

But Hughes was crushed when he turned up to the studio to find there was no audience at all, so he refused to go on with the recording.

‘They lied,’ he explained.

‘I refused to to go on until they got [an audience.] He said producers ended up getting people off the street.

‘They’ve had a live audience ever since.’

Hughes breakfast show co-host Erin Molan said she surprised that The Project ever had a live audience.

Hughes had interrupted Molan’s tribute to outgoing A Current Affair anchor Tracy Grimshaw in order to share his ‘diva’ moment.

Sounding unimpressed with Hughes, Molan apologised to Grimshaw on-air.

‘Sorry Trace, this [segment] has been hi-jacked,’ she said.
