Perth Now: “Australia’s Got Talent was ‘a dream job’ for pregnant Lucy Durack”

Working on Australia’s Got Talent was a dream maternity job for Lucy Durack.

The Perth stage star has been pregnant with her second child for the duration of filming, and when she returns for tomorrow’s grand final, will have just weeks before her due date.

But despite her growing bump, Durack told AAA Weekend she had loved every moment of working on the Seven show.

“It has been so entertaining and heartwarming,” she said.

“I am quite pregnant now, I have been the whole journey, but it has been the most delightful maternity job. The flying has been a bit tiring towards the end because I only have a few weeks left to go. Every pregnant woman should have the experience of someone else choosing their outfits and doing their hair and make-up. The whole team has been so kind and accommodating.”

While it is up to the public to crown a winner from the 10 finalists, Durack has a soft spot for two of the contenders.

“Being a mum, I think I was personally going for the other mothers,” she said.

“I am a big fan of Kristy Sellars and Jennifer Anderson. I think they both really upped it every time they performed and did something really special.”

Durack added she was pleased to see a wide cross-section of the Australian public represented in the final.

“I think we have quite a big mix of different cultural backgrounds and ages,” she said.

“We have some really great women in the mix, which is really important to me. And everyone is so supportive of each other, which has been so lovely to watch. Everybody is competing but they are all doing such different things, so it is hard to compare them. The grand final feels like a big celebration of people who have worked really hard to be there.”

After AGT, Durack’s full-time work commitments will wrap up but she still has commitments up to six days before her due date.

“I hope baby is well behaved and stays in there,” she laughed.
