Footy legend Billy Brownless has said the upcoming wedding of his good friend James Brayshaw will take place on Friday, with a host of big names from footy and entertainment expected to attend.
The popular sports commentator and Channel 7 radio presenter will marry his partner of six years, Lisa Christie, in Perth in front of a star-studded guest list.
Brownless, who works as co-host of Brayshaw’s Triple M Rush Hour, revealed the wedding would start on Friday and continue until Saturday, when guests will travel to Rottnest Island off the Western Australian coast.
“Jim’s going around again, so for the second time he’s marrying sweet Lisa who planned it all,” Brownless said.
“I have the wedding on Friday and then go to Rottnest Island on Saturday.”

The Herald Sun reported that footy and media identities attending the event include Garry Lyon and partner Nicky Brownless, Craig Hutchison and his partner Clare, Brian Taylor, Luke Darcy, Campbell Brown, Nathan Brown, Damian Barrett, Danielle Frawley, Angus Brayshaw and former cricket star Greg Blewett.
However, Collingwood CEO Craig Kelly reportedly cannot make it.
Brayshaw popped the question to Lisa during a romantic holiday in Italy last November.

The 55-year-old former cricketer and his partner toured Salò on Lake Garda and Verona during the trip.
James shared several images on social media of the whirlwind trip alongside a delighted Lisa, who he started dating in 2017.
“Italy… in my opinion the best country in the world,” he wrote alongside a tourist photo of the couple.
‘Daylight second… yesterday in Salo, Lake Garda… next level extraordinary!’ he added.
That comment was posted next to an image of the beaming couple enjoying a glass of red wine.
Brayshaw, who has four sons from his previous marriage, hit back at Brownless when he offered to be master of ceremonies at the wedding
‘Verona… beautiful place full of stunningly well-dressed people… like being in a fashion shoot!’ he captioned a second photo.
Not much is known about the details of the wedding, but one thing is certain: Brownless will not be handling MC duties.
“Can you believe it, I said I would MC or be in his bridal party and I got knocked back,” Brownless said in August.
“I would have done it for a thousand dollars. In fact, for old Jim, I would have done it for free.”
Brayshaw has four sons – Henry, George, Johnathon and Frederick – with ex-wife Sarah. The couple was married for 23 years before splitting up.
Lisa, an interior designer, has two children from a previous relationship and was once engaged to TV star Jamie Durie.
