On Sunday night, Gold Logie nominee Tracy Grimshaw will walk the TV Week Logie Awards red carpet for the first time in 10 years.
In a revealing chat with KIISFM’s Kyle and Jackie O, the A Current Affair host opened up about the why she’s skipped one of the most exciting parts of the night.
“For 10 years I have snuck into the Palladium Room at the Crown in Melbourne through the kitchen so I can avoid the red carpet,” she said.
“There is a reason I boycotted the Logies red carpet 10 years ago,” she said.

“The last time I did the red carpet, this lovely stylist in Melbourne … made me a dress that I loved. I can’t wear high heels and I struggle with all that stuff because I have a dodgy ankle. She finally made me a dress that I could wear comfy heels with and it was all fine.”
Unfortunately, her outfit was on the ‘not’ list of celeb dresses that year and the photographers on the red carpet caught her in a way that she “didn’t look so good”.
“I was nominated as the worst dressed at the Logies that year and I felt really sorry for her [the stylist] because she’s made me this dress and I liked it. I felt so bad for her.
“I’m not a fashionista, I don’t put myself out there as a fashionista, I don’t pretend to be the best dressed anywhere and I just decided if this what the red carpet is I’m not doing it anymore.”
You go, Tracy!
This year the TV star is nominated for the coveted Gold Logie, going up against the likes of Jessica Marais, Rodger Corser, Grant Denyer and Amanda Keller.
The awards will be held on the Gold Coast for the first time.
