Hamish Macdonald is mercilessly mocked on his first night back on The Project


‘You didn’t get this on Q+A, mate!’ Hamish Macdonald is mercilessly mocked about his ‘spa parties’ as he returns to The Project following abrupt departure from the ABC

Hamish Macdonald was back on The Sunday Project this weekend after his abrupt departure from ABC’s Q+A. 

And his co-star Tommy Little took every opportunity to poke fun at the returning star, first joking that he’d mistaken him for Project star Peter van Onselen on the staff Zoom call.   

‘Hamish Macdonald, that makes so much sense. In our meeting today, I was like, damn, PVO is looking hot!’ Tommy joked.

Later, he ribbed Hamish for throwing ‘spa parties’ following a segment which questioned whether people would want to know when they were going to die. 

‘Think of your last week. The things you would do! It would be like one of Hamish’s spa parties for a whole week,’ Tommy prodded. 

‘Imagine if that man was going to do if he knew when he would die! It would make the dark web blush.’

As the rest of the cast giggled helplessly, Tommy, 36, continued: ‘You didn’t get this on Q+A, mate. After those spa parties, there’s a lot of Q and a bit of A!’ 

Hamish himself was in stitches at that point and clearly delighted to be back on the panel.  

The journalist has returned to The Project on Friday and Sunday nights – and told the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday that his comeback to the Channel Ten program is a ‘genuine privilege’.

‘The Project is part of my DNA… it’s something I really believe in, it’s a show that I love, it’s an ecosystem of people that I love and get along with,’ he told The Sydney Morning Herald. 

‘Tommy [Little], Carrie [Bickmore], Lisa [Wilkinson], Waleed [Aly], Pete [Helliar], they are genuinely my friends. They’re people I talk to all the time’.
