Sex secrets of the Sunrise Cash Cow: Seven executive reveals the breakfast mascot has a VERY dirty side

The executive producer of Sunrise has revealed an extraordinary behind-the-scenes secret about the show’s famous Cash Cow mascot.

Michael Pell told McKnight Tonight that one of the staffers tasked with wearing the suit had a habit of whispering ‘dirty things’ to the hosts in order to distract them.

Fortunately, everybody on the Sunrise panel was in on the joke so the Cash Cow’s rude language didn’t lead to an HR investigation.

The Seven executive, 38, who has held the top job at Australia’s No. 1 breakfast show since 2010, said: ‘We had another guy who used to wear the cow suit and he used to whisper dirty things to them [the hosts].

‘Actually, Sam Mac mentioned it in his book [Accidental Weatherman] and that was a lot of fun.

‘A lot of what happens behind the scenes is a lot of fun too, and you have the carry the energy through to the screen, and hopefully to the viewers.’

The Cash Cow pops up during Sunrise’s daily giveaways, and the person underneath the novelty outfit is usually one of the show’s guest greeters.

In October, the mascot’s head famously fell off during a live segment outside Brekky Central in Sydney’s Martin Place.

The character’s energetic dance routine caused the head of the costume to topple off, revealing the young male staffer underneath.

The man wearing the costume immediately dropped the umbrellas and covered his face with his hands, then rushed off camera.
