Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes reveals his diva moment in The Project that brought filming to a halt

Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes has revealed he once refused to be on The Project because the show didn’t have a live audience.

The 51-year-old made the startling admission during his 2Day FM’s Hughsey, Ed and Erin breakfast program on Friday.

The incident happened during the first season of The Project in 2009, when Hughes was an original and regular panelist.

Hughes told listeners he had raised the issue of a live audience in pre-show meetings, and the producers agreed to have one.

But Hughes was devastated when he showed up at the studio to find there was no audience at all, so he refused to proceed with the recording.

“You lied,” he explained.

“I refused to continue until they made it [an audience.] He said the producers eventually got people off the streets.

“They’ve had a live audience ever since.”

Hughes breakfast show co-host Erin Molan said she was surprised The Project ever had a live audience.

Hughes had interrupted Molan’s tribute to outgoing A Current Affair host Tracy Grimshaw to share his “diva” moment.

Molan sounded unimpressed with Hughes and apologized to Grimshaw on the air.

“Sorry about this, Trace [segment] was kidnapped,” she said.
