Dr Chris Brown
Chris Brown is an Australian veterinarian, television personality and author. He is The Living Room’s resident travel and animal guru, exploring weird and wonderful travel hotspots and seeking out surprising animal stories in Australia and abroad.
Three years after graduating from the University of Sydney as a vet, Chris was talent-spotted telling stories over a few beers at a pub. A fortnight later, he was the new vet on Seven Network’s Harry’s Practice. He has also appeared on Burke’s Backyard, The Today Show and Talk to the Animals.
Vet, author, television personality, dreamboat – it’s no wonder Australia’s barking mad for Dr. Chris Brown.
When he’s not tending to his furry patients at the Bondi Junction Veterinary Hospital, he’s exploring the world, seeking out hotspots and finding surprising animal stories to share on The Living Room or leading a camp full of celebrities through the African jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Having graduated from the University of Sydney as a vet, Chris stumbled into media by chance. While telling some wacky and wonderful animal stories over a few beers at the pub, he was scouted and cast as a vet on Seven Network’s Harry’s Practice. He’s fronted shows including Bondi Vet, The Living Room, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway.
In 2009, he fronted 10’s factual series, Bondi Vet, giving an inside look at the hustle and feather-ruffle of his busy Bondi Junction vet practice. Audiences were also treated to stunning overlay of Bondi Beach, and a shirtless Chris running out of the Bondi Beach surf.
Having found an undeniable on-screen chemistry with comedian and entertainer Julia Morris, the pair have gone on to co-host I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway.
A self-proclaimed shutterbug, Chris has a keen interest and natural talent for photography.
He’s also released two books, Family Guide to Pets and Tales from a Bondi Vet. In 2018, Chris took his talents global, starring in Vet Gone Wild for Animal Planet in the U.S.
