News Round-up

Justin Melvey hosting new show on Fox8 in Australia
MAGINE yourself on a seat at a tram stop. Beneath your perch is a stray mobile phone, which starts ringing. If you're the sort of person who would answer it, you're well on your way to being a participant in the latest reality show on Australian TV screens. And if you're the sort of person who would accept the offer of $US25,000 ($A34,650) from a stranger at the other end of the phone, you might as well prepare for your close-up.

Welcome to THE PHONE, an appealingly pulpy reality-cum-competition show. Posing as a millionaire playboy, former DAYS OF OUR LIVES and HOME AND AWAY star Justin Melvey is the mysterious caller who guides the show's contestants on their crazy real-time journey around a different city each week.

"I've had a broad and epic journey," he says. "I haven't got caught up in the whole acting, ego-driven avenue where (someone says) you can only do this, you can only do that. I stick to the challenges that make me want to get out of bed."

Case involving ate ISIDINGO star Ashley Callie moved
Relatives of actress Ashley Callie on Wednesday described as "irritating" the transfer to another court of the culpable homicide case against the man involved in her fatal accident.

"This is highly irritating and frustrating because it is just a metre away from the jurisdiction," her sister Lauren Callie told journalists outside the Randburg Magistrate's Court.

Prosecutor Gary Famanda told the court a decision was taken to transfer the matter as Randburg had no jurisdiction over it. It emerged during proceedings that the February 8, 2008, accident in which Callie's car collided with Pretorius' car was a few metres short of being within the Randburg jurisdiction.
