Melissa Doyle gushes over husband John Dunlop in anniversary celebrations

Melissa Doyle rarely shows her romantic side as a news presenter.

But the former Sunrise host, 49, couldn’t help but praise her husband, John Dunlop, as she marked their 24th wedding anniversary on Monday with a sweet throwback photo on Instagram.

‘He deserves a medal! Love you @johndunlop #happyanniversary #24years’, the caption read.

A youthful looking Mel looked glamorous in a sleek wedding dress while John looked handsomely dapper in a black tuxedo as they both laughed in the happy snap.

John also took to Instagram to celebrate the milestone. 

‘Happy Anniversary. 11.11.95,’ it was simply captioned, alongside a photo of the pair leaving the church hand in hand.

Last month, Channel Seven cancelled its flagship current affairs show Sunday Night, which Mel hosts.

The announcement was made with Seven’s director of news and public affairs Craig McPherson saying it was a ‘very tough decision in a challenging TV landscape’. 

‘After 11 years at the forefront of our Public Affairs offering, it is with much sadness I announce the closing down of the day-to-day operations of Sunday Night: True Stories,’ said Mr McPherson at the time.

‘I want to thank the exceptional team of reporters, producers, camera operators, editors and many others who have helped produce more than 500 hours of quality public affairs programming over its lifetime,’ he added. 

According to Woman’s Day, Mel is preparing to front a revamped version of Midday – the talk show previously hosted by the likes of Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Tracy Grimshaw, David Reyne and Ray Martin.

‘Mel will be filming secret pilots for a new version of Midday in the coming weeks, and I know she’s excited about the potential boost this will give her career,’ said a source. 

The program, which has reportedly been given the working title ‘Midday With Mel’, will replace Seven’s existing midday movie.
