"Reality TV production has been an eye opener."

Longtime House Rules host Johanna Griggs has announced she is leaving the series after seven years.

In a lengthy statement on Instagram Joh thanks fans for their "passionate support" and the graciousness of the Channel 7 network.

"I've got some news for you all. After a great deal of consideration, I recently sat down with the network to ask to be allowed to step down as host of House Rules," she wrote.

"They have very graciously agreed for me to [resign], which I'm incredibly appreciative of... As the show goes into pre-production for the next season, it's the perfect time to hand over the role to someone who will take the show into [season eight]."

"Reality TV production has been an eye opener, they are such enormous beasts with so many people involved, and I've had a great time over the last seven years steering the ship, getting to work with many of my favourite camera crews as we criss-crossed the country," she added.

"My role as host of Better Homes and Gardens, which everyone knows I’m crazy about,  keeps me very busy. Hopefully now though, with a different work load, I’ll be in a better position to take up one or two of the great opportunities that come my way, especially with 7 Sport, which is such a passion for me," she ended the post.
