The actor, who is also taking on I’m a Celebrity host Julia Morris for the gong, praised the cast and crew of Home and Away for their hard work during Covid.

“Everyone has worked incredibly hard during the Covid period and it’s just fantastic that our show has been nominated six times,” he said.

“It reflects everyone in the cast and crew,” he added.

One of the longest serving actors in the industry, Ray has appeared on every season of Home and Away since it began in 1988.

“It felt pretty good, but it was also a bit of a surprise,” Ray said of his nomination, which was announced on May 15.

Ray won a Gold Logie back in 2010.

“I kind of thought my golden days were over 12 years ago when I won it.

“I don’t see myself as some kind of nominee for Gold Logie. There are always enough people who deserve more.’

Ray recently revealed the pitfalls of being an actor.

“When I was younger as a freelance actor, I wondered if I could support myself, let alone anyone else,” he said in a resurfaced Telegraph interview.

“It’s a fun old job, it’s very precarious, it’s a pretty seedy old job as far as employment goes.”
