Last night’s interview with Will “Egg Boy” Connolly proved a smash for The Project after it posted its best numbers since last July.
Connolly, 17, grabbed global attention after egging far-right politician Fraser Anning last week and his interview with 10’s newsy chat show bought in 574,000 viewers according to overnight OzTAM metro numbers.
Ever since he cracked the egg that divided the nation, Melbourne teenager Will Connolly, better known as #EggBoy, has been both vilified and dubbed the “hero of the Earth”.
