Grant Denyer dotes on his daughter Sunday… after slamming false affair rumour

Grant Denyer has refused to let false accusations of infidelity get him down. 

The television host, 44, and his wife Chezzi, 41, publicly denied a New Idea magazine report on Wednesday suggesting he was having an affair with his Dancing with the Stars partner Lily Cornish, 22.

By Thursday, Grant had already shrugged off the hurtful claims, returning to Instagram with a heartwarming video of himself doting on his eight-month-old daughter Sunday.

In the clip, Grant is seen playfully pretending to eat Sunday’s toes during dinner as she sits in her high chair.

‘I want to eat your sausage feet… I’m going to cook up those little sausage toes,’ he sings, before turning the camera to film Chezzi standing nearby.  

‘Don’t look at her. [She’s] not going to save you!’ he jokes.

Hours earlier, Grant had left a friendly comment on Lily’s latest Instagram post, which featured a photo of the brunette posing alongside her former Dancing with the Stars partner Christian Wilkins.

‘You two are the reason I did DWTS in the first place!’ Grant commented, adding: ‘You both made it look so fun and fabulous. Greatest duo ever!’ 

On Wednesday, New Idea published photos of Denyer with his hand on the thigh of dancer Lily in between rehearsals for Dancing with the Stars: All Stars in Sydney.

Other images showed the pair – who are partners on the upcoming season of the Channel Seven show – smiling as they walked down the street.

Chezzi posted screenshots of the article on Instagram on Wednesday and blasted the publication for fabricating such a ‘gross and mean’ story.

‘What the actual hell is this front-page crap, New Idea,’ she wrote, adding that the images had been completely taken out of context.

‘Lilz [Cornish] is like our adopted daughter. We grew extremely close during her month long stay with us here in Bathurst. We absolutely adore her!

‘Poor Lilz doesn’t deserve this defamation of character… New Idea, you should be ashamed.’ 

Chezzi went on to claim the photographer who took the photos had apologised to her for the images being ‘taken out of context’.

She also pointed out that Cornish’s long-term boyfriend Jock White had been pictured visiting her during rehearsals for DWTS.

Denyer later issued his own blistering statement, calling the article a ‘brutal’ attack on a ’22-year-old kid’ and a ‘dad of three girls’.

‘My wife and I are used to fabricated stories from these type of magazine, we’ve had a life of it but for Lily, she’s a 22 yo kid!!’ he wrote on Instagram.

‘This kind of treatment is brutally unfair and disgusting.

‘I’m a Dad of 3 girls. And if any friend is having a bad day or a tough time in their life, I’m going to be there for them. End of story.’

It’s not the first time Denyer has denied allegations made by a tabloid magazine. 

In February 2014, Woman’s Day accused him and Chezzi of checking into a rehab facility to address a ‘$200,000-a-year meth addiction’ – claims the Denyers have always strenuously denied.

An alleged ‘source’ described the Channel 10 presenter as being ’45 kilos, really drawn around his face and look[ing] sick. It was a shocking sight.’

While Denyer admitted he and his wife did visit The Cabin in Thailand, he strongly denied they were there to treat meth addictions and threatened to sue Woman’s Day.

At the time, he released a statement via his then-manager Titus Day rubbishing the allegations.

‘Claims that the couple have a drug addiction and that Grant recently lost his Channel Seven contract are both false,’ the statement read.

‘Grant and Chezzi Denyer are saddened by the highly defamatory article in this week’s Woman’s Day magazine. 

‘The couple have been under immense stress in recent months due to Grant dealing with chronic fatigue brought on by exhaustion and an ongoing unknown stomach illness.

‘Chezzi has also been dealing with PTSD and anxiety issues resulting from Grant’s condition.’
