Dicko returns to Australian Idol judging panel!

Ian “Dicko” Dickson has returned to Australian Idol, meaning that there will now be four judges on the panel — he joins Mark Holden, Marcia Hines and Kyle Sandilands.

It has been two years since Dicko left Channel 10 for Channel 7, saying he was bored with talent shows. On Seven, he hosted My Restaurant Rules and Celebrity Survivor.

    Well it’s about time! Not that a series without him was actually screened in NZ. But still… We better get the new season next year!

    Dicko was always my favourite judge — even though people gave him so much grief over the Paulini comment, he was really spot on with his comments in general to the contestants.

    That’s brilliant – the best judge after Simon!:) Well, as actual judging goes maybe the best, Simon’s appeal is that he’s so funny!:)

    If only we get to see it, now it’s not likely there will be another NZ Idol!

    He was the one that saw potential in Ben – and encouraged him to get out there and go on to win!:)
