Rove Live: Cancelled

Rove McManus has cancelled his television variety show for the rest of the year following the death of his wife, Belinda Emmett.

A statement was released by Network Ten yesterday, but it is not known when McManus or the program will return to air.

“Network Ten notes with great sadness Belinda Emmett’s passing this morning,” the statement said.

“Our heartfelt sympathies are with Rove McManus and the Emmett and McManus families.”

“Ten will give Rove the time he needs away from the show and any support we can during this very sad time,” the statement said.

Actor-turned-singer Toni Collette was to appear on this week’s Rove Live, as was musician Pete Murray and Borat, the fictional journalist from Kazakhstan played by British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

McManus, 32, began working for Ten in 2000, after Channel Nine axed Rove Live after just 10 episodes.

“At the moment I have no plans for Rove Live for the rest of 2006. This is a very difficult period for all of us and some time away is the best thing for me right now. In the meantime I want to extend my sincerest thanks for all of your heartfelt messages and condolences. That Belinda meant so much to so many people, genuinely means a lot to me. -Rove”
