This isn’t the first time that the talented producer has almost headed over to the States.

In 2019, the Herald Sun reported that Pell had ‘expressed interest’ in relocating to America, prompting Seven bosses to offer him an annual salary of over $1million to stay at the network.

Pell is rumoured to be one of the top paid executives at Seven and produces up to 24 hours of live television every week.
