Lisa McCune is returning to television after stepping out of the spotlight many years ago.
The Australian actress, 52, is set to co-host the upcoming backyard makeover show The Garden Hustle, which premieres Saturday, November 18 at 7.30pm on Channel Nine.
Lisa, who is best known for her role in the Aussie classic police drama Blue Heelers, will co-host alongside landscaper and The Block legend Dave Franklin.
The quirky garden series follows ambitious homeowners, renters and unit dwellers on their journey to turn their tired spaces into garden oases.
Each episode features a new duo as they take their dream garden plan from Pinterest to real-life perfection.
Lisa landed her breakout role as Const. Margaret ‘Maggie’ Doyle on police drama Blue Heelers from 1994 to 2004.
Despite being one of Australia’s biggest TV stars in the late ’90s and early 2000s, she has kept a comparatively low profile in recent years.
Lisa’s decision to step away from the spotlight came after photos were published in 2012 of her kissing New Zealand opera singer Teddy Tahu Rhodes, her co-star in the stage production of the musical South Pacific.
At the time the kiss made headlines, it was reported that Lisa was still married to her husband, Tim Disney, with whom she shares three children.
In an interview with Stellar magazine, Lisa spoke about why she has started keeping her private life out of the public eye.
She explained: ‘Over the last couple of years I made a decision that while my kids are teenagers – and I feel really strongly about this – my story affects their stories.
‘So until they get to a point where they are living their own lives, I have decided to be very quiet about mine.’
Lisa married husband Tim in 2000, and the two went on to have children Archer, 22, Oliver, 20, and Remy, 18.
The Sydney-born star shot to fame at the age of 22 on Blue Heelers and recently appeared in comedy How to Stay Married alongside Peter Helliar.
