Walt & Dani
Walt Collins and Dani Reilly (formerly Dani Wales) are your favourite lifestyle duo. They're like brother and sister, best mates in real life and they absolutely love their job. You can see that just by watching any episode.
You won't find a more down to Earth TV husband and wife. Walt and Dani love to poke fun at themselves and the situations they find themselves in- from giving it a go, to teaching a masterclass... our hosts have become household names thanks to 12 seasons of the show. Don't even ask them about hidden nasties!! :)
Born in Townsville and originally from a banking background, Dani Wales has a natural flair for designing contemporary liveable spaces. Dani shot to fame after appearing with her partner Dan Reilly on The Block, in not one, but two seasons. Dani quickly established herself as the ‘queen of styling’ and her renovated houses in South Melbourne and Bondi have been universally recognised as ‘stylish’ and ‘beautifully resolved’.
Dani now runs Manna Made- a building company with her husband Dan. This keeps her busy and constantly on the lookout for the latest in style and innovation; a perfect fit to host Healthy Homes TV Australia. Dani has done a few room makeovers in her time and has recently finished Blairgowrie House - a stunning new build that has received acclaim from peers and industry magazines. Dani is also an interior designer.
Dani is smart, intelligent and friendly. Her on screen style is lovely to watch and she's not letting Walt get away with any tricks or pranks that easily on Healthy Homes Australia! For Dani, teaching her viewers (and Walt) how to create a space on a realistic budget is a fantastic challenge.
Dani is a true asset to the show and viewers love her energy and style which she brings to sometimes confronting stories... and she's not afraid to get her hands dirty in the garden!
Born and schooled in the UK, Walt Collins migrated to Australia as a late teenager. His path into the world of media was already well established by the universe from an early age. At 14, Walt began broadcasting his pirate TV station to his local neighbourhood in the UK via a wok satellite! A director in the UK discovered Walt's work and a documentary called WalterVision was produced, airing in Sheffield. The young lad's career in television was born.
Walt Collins has been described as one of the most sought after lifestyle presenters in Australia, has been cast for numerous projects, inlcluding hit Channel 10 show Animal Extra! and Buy To Build- an acclaimed show about the new house and land market also on Channel 10.
Plus in early 2022 a new series called County House Facelift. He also has a successful website / blog which pulls in thousands of hits a month. Walt has trade experience which helps with the building side of this series.
Walt's style is believable and honest. He's best described as a charismatic charmer, who has the guts and the cheek to make any interviewee smile. His intelligence and wit, together with a 'Down to Earth' spirit makes him easy to work with and effortless to watch. He's definitely an operator!
