Magazine editor and TV judge-turned Foxtel executive Wendy Moore has announced her departure from Seven’s House Rules.

As recently as two weeks ago Moore indicated to Mediaweek she would be continuing her role on House Rules, but that is no longer the case.

Listen to Wendy Moore talk to Mediaweek about her future on the Media week podcast.

Moore’s announcement comes several months after House Rules host Johanna Griggs announced her departure.

“After seven incredible years on the amazing show that is House Rules, it is time to say goodbye,” Moore posted on social media on the weekend.

“I have loved every single moment and am really proud to have worked on a show that has literally changed lives and inspired us all to take on big, scary challenges. I have made so many friends, seen so many parts of Australia and learnt so much that I will always be grateful to Channel Seven for.”

Moore paid tribute to her colleagues on the program, starting with Johanna Griggs and then also Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Joe Snell, Drew Heath, Carolyn Burns-McCrave and Jamie Durie.

“Of course it’s always sad to see the end of such a great experience, I guess you could call this the #sevenyearitch – it’s definitely time, and my new role heading up the Lifestyle Channels Foxtel has been an absolute whirlwind over the last six months and I know it’s just going to get bigger and better as all of our new shows start rolling out next year.

“And just quietly, I’m pretty excited at the thought of a whole, uninterrupted, summer with my family for the first time in seven years!

“Thank you to everyone who has watched House Rules over the years – I’ll be watching season 8 along with you next year!”
