‘There’s this perception people want all this fake stuff all the time, but I think people actually just want natural,’ he added, praising the writers and producers of the show.
‘And I think it’s a really cool thing that the writers threw that in, that’s what a lot of people might like about the relationship, I think.’

Five Bedrooms was created by Offspring writers Michael Lucas and Christina and also stars Packed to the Rafters’ Hugh Sheridan and The Wrong Girl’s Doris Younane.
With a cast including Stephen and Offspring’s Kat Stewart, the story of Five Bedrooms centers around five singles who meet at a wedding and drunkenly decide to buy a house together in a bid to get a foot in the property market.
‘Five Bedrooms is a little bit Offspring but when we show it to people they say it feels more like The Secret Life of Us,’ Ten program chief Beverley McGarvey told

Meanwhile, show star Kat Stewart, who plays neurotic divorcee Liz, believes audiences will relate to the characters because they were inspired by real events.
