Grant Denyer Gold Logie Winner Speech 2018

Grant Denyer Is the Winner of the 2018 Gold Logie!

Grant Denyer is the winner of the 2018 Gold Logie! The host of Family Feud took home the coveted award on July 1, which was presented by former winner Samuel Johnson.

It's a particularly poignant time for Denyer and Family Feud, which Network Ten announced would be discontinued earlier this year. In his speech, he highlighted the special place the show had in his heart and how it rescued him from some trying personal circumstances.

"The power of people has been pretty extraordinary this week as we rally behind Family Feud. It really is an absolute honour to be welcomed into your loungerooms and households six nights a week," he said.

"Family Feud came long to me in my life when I really wasn't sure if I'd ever work again or if I wanted to. I wasn't in a very good place, I was a bit lost . . . Family Feud came along and I was very unwell at that particular time. Family Feud gave me a ladder out of that hole. It gave me my mojo back, my confidence, I rebuilt myself, it gave me a new attitude . . . Family Feud, thank you so much, you saved me."

Denyer also took home the award for most popular presenter earlier in the night.
