Grant Denyer Instagram hijacked: ‘So that’s where my phone went’
Grant Denyer has joked about his Instagram being hijacked after a weekend alone with his three daughters while wife Chezzi was away.
Last Thursday, Denyer shared with his fans that he was having a day from hell that included a water pipe blowing, a podcast failing to record, his baby daughter Sunday having conjunctivitis, and his older daughter Sailor accidentally dropping his iPad in the bath.

On top of all these disasters, ““Mum (wife Chezzi) leaves me and the girls tomorrow for a 3-day retreat. Yikes.”
It sounded like Denyer was fearing the worst, and his fans to the comments section to wish him luck.
“Sending thoughts and prayers … and wine,” joked comedian Merrick Watts.
However, Denyer’s next post was not an SOS call, but rather a celebration of what a great time he’d been having with the kids.
“Mum’s away for 4 days so … girl Dad mode ENGAGED,” he wrote, posting a hilarious photo of the family wearing matching Christmas elf outfits.
“Matching Xmas clothes. Outdoor rock concert. Hotdogs and milkshakes. Tortoise rescue and release. Country road blasts,” he continued.
“The. Absolute. Best.
“Such precious solo parent time and we’re having a BLAST.
“I’ve been working away for a lot of their lives … so this stuff matters so much to me and them.
“We’ve never been closer.”
The post was hashtagged, #makeitcount, #precious, #family, #love and #girldad.
So far, so good … until the next Instagram post.
Denyer’s phone seemed to have been hijacked by his daughter Sailor who had posted a selfie of herself sticking her tongue out at the camera.
“So that’s where my phone went,” Denyer wrote beneath the photo.
The running commentary of Denyer’s weekend with the daughters had his followers in raptures.
“Can you adopt me?” comedian Franck Galiègue joked.
“Aw, Grant, just love seeing your posts and all those beautiful smiles,” one fan wrote.
“Also hope Chezzie is enjoying her time away.”
“Love it, you would be such a fun dad,” wrote another.
“You’re a proper legend,” said one fan.
“So nice to hear a Dad loving time with his family!
“You and Chez are a great team, and how special for you to get this time.”
Denyer recently gave a revealing interview about his health breakdown after years of living a hectic life as a TV host and presenter for Sunrise and various other shows.
Speaking on the Along For The Ride podcast, Denyer talked candidly about his years as a TV personality and how doctors warned him he needed to slow down.
“There was a point there where I went to the doctor and they examined my organs and tested them all and said they were running at about seven per cent.
“And they said, ‘if you don’t do something, drastically, you’re going to die, and soon.’
“I was trying to push on and I realised I just had to give in to it – forget about television, forget about success, forget about ratings – and just focus on my health, because it wasn’t going to end well.”
Asked how the Grant Denyer of the past compared with the Grant Denyer of now – married, with three young daughters, and living life at a slightly less hectic pace – the popular personality said you still had to do the things that excited you in order to live a fulfilling life.
A lot of people ask why I still race cars,” the 45-year-old said.
“I get a lot of, ’Oh, but you’re a dad now’,” that sort of thing.
“And I was like, ‘you know what? I could wrap myself in cotton wool, but what kind of a life would that be?’
“If I just sat on the couch and did nothing, is that living a life?”
He said he wanted to show his daughters as they grew up that it was important to still follow your passions as much as you could.
“The one thing that I think you need to find, to exist in this world that we’ve got right now, is something that sparks joy,” he said.
“And if you can’t find that in your job – find something else outside of work that sparks that joy.
