The comedian, writer, presenter and actor is best known for her stand-up comedy work and her performances on TV programs Good News Week, Utopia and The Beautiful Lie.

Network 10 teased the reboot of the series as an audience guessing game during screenings of the F1 Australian Grand Prix, before revealing the news yesterday.

On the popular show, four contestants are ushered by the host through the iconic blue door and into unknown scenarios.

After being greeted by the classic line, ‘Thank god you’re here!’, the players must improvise their roles among a cast of actors. Once they’ve each performed a scene, they enter the stage together for an “all-in group challenge” before the judge declares a winner of the episode.

Guests that have appeared on past seasons of the show include Dan O’Connor, Alan Fletcher, Kimberley Davis, Matt Welsh, Simon Burke, Nikki Webster, Nick Molloy and Damien Flemming. The show first aired in 2006 and ran for four seasons before finishing in 2009.
