Grant Denyer is married to TV producer Cheryl Rogers, who is the founder of Mummy Time. They have three daughters. However, Denyer also competed in the Australian GT Championship with Maranello Motorsport in 2015, but switched to the McLaren 650S fielded by Tekno Autosports, sometimes in partnership with car owner and eventual 2016 Bathurst 1000 champion Jonathon Webb, in the GT series. In 2016 Denyer won the Australian Endurance Championship, an offshoot of the GT Championship, with Nathan Morcom.
On 17 September 2008, Denyer injured his back whilst participating in a monster truck promotional event. He suffered a compressed fracture of the lower vertebrae and was taken by ambulance to the Wollongong Hospital.
The accident occurred while Denyer was in training for the Monster Truck Championships, driving a monster truck at Dapto Showground. After practising a jump over five cars in the truck, Denyer removed his foot too soon from the accelerator which caused the vehicle to land heavily; his lower vertebrae was broken in eight places. He was moved to a Sydney hospital, and his recovery took months. He was reported as saying that his injury had reduced his rather short size by 1 cm.
Denyer was then moved into intensive care, but there were no signs of any nerve damage or serious injuries, so he was back on the air to host Australia’s Got Talent in 2009; however, he did not return to It Takes Two in May.
In 2017, Denyer was banned from appearing on the radio stations Triple M and KIIS 106.5 after he used a story told by former rugby league player Matthew Johns as his own on Triple M on KISS 106.5. On the Triple M show The Grill Team, on which Denyer was a guest, Johns recounted how he tried playing the board game Test Match with his children.
Denyer later appeared on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on KIIS where he repeated the tale as his own. Johns later expressed his dismay to Kyle Sandilands on The Kyle and Jackie O Show and both hosts agreed to ban Denyer from ever appearing on either station. Later on Twitter, Denyer admitted to stealing Johns’ joke and changing the punchline, with The Kyle and Jackie O Show Twitter account posting a mocking reply to him.
Denyer’s 2018 Gold Logie win has proved controversial with people (including Russell Crowe) believing he only won because of Tom Gleeson’s campaign. Gleeson has denied these suggestions.
