ianthorpe FLASHBACK #58:
Although swimming champion Ian Thorpe (pictured) was still winning medals and breaking records in 2002, he took a brief diversion into television as the host of the Seven Network‘s Undercover Angels, a short-lived series that saw Thorpe’s ‘angels’ – actress Simone Kessell, Katie Underwood (from the pop group Bardot manufactured by Seven’s Popstars in 2000) and radio co-host Jackie O – performing good deeds for people in need.  The feel-good series was a good ratings performer for Seven but was never extended beyond the first series.  Picture: The Sunday Mail TV Scene, 12 May 2002

    so my husband and his family was on the undercover angels 2002 episode with ian thorpe. I have looked everywhere to look for places or websites that i could purchase a copy of the series. His family still resides in the same house that the show was recorded. In Cecil Hills, Sydney. Is there anywhere you would know where i could purchase the series? I hope you do!!!
    Thank you. I hope you could reply to my email address

    1. Hi Diana. I’ve removed your email address from public view. However I am not aware of that program being available on DVD. Maybe check with Channel Seven?
