Dr. Chris Brown’s Channel Ten co-star Amanda Kellar has revealed why he really jumped to rival network Seven.

Kellar, who co-starred in The Living Room with Brown for ten years, said Ten would only give him a month’s work over the next year.

“In terms of television, he does I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, which is about a month, and then he has 11 months where he’s looking for a TV project,” she said on her radio show WSFM’s Jonesy & Amanda.

She went on to say that Brown still has his veterinary practice and worked there often, but wanted more TV appearances and Channel 10 just didn’t have them.

Her co-host on the radio, Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones, then quipped, ‘What’s he supposed to do, he can’t squeeze his anal glands all the time, can he?’

“Well, he did for the negotiations,” Keller replied.

“He has ideas for his own programs and Channel Seven has said come and do it here and all the power is his.

“Why doesn’t Chris jump somewhere where he’ll be offered a year of varied work?”

According to news.com.auBrown has signed a two-year contract with Seven worth more than $1 million a year.

He will officially join the network in July following his contractual obligations for I’m A Celebrity this year and is expected to produce “new projects” within the network.

Brown said in a statement: “I’m not entirely sure my old access pass will work, but once we get over that hurdle and I’m back from the jungle I can’t wait to sink my teeth into some exciting new projects in the second half of the year and then with Seven.’

“In terms of television, he’s doing I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, which is about a month, and then he has 11 months where he’s looking for a TV project,” Keller said. (Pictured: Chris with I’m A Celebrity co-host Julia Morris)

James Warburton, Managing Director and CEO of Seven West Media, added: ‘We are very pleased to welcome Chris back to Seven. It has been too long.

‘Chris is one of the most popular and recognized people on Australian TV and brings warmth, intelligence and a great sense of humor to everything he does.

“We can’t wait to have him on board and announce the exciting new content in which he will star.”
