But on Friday Ray Meagher, who plays Alf Stewart, put the script down and stepped behind the microphone for a special appearance on Nova 96.9’s Fitzy And Wippa Show.
The 73-year-old took on the breakfast show’s rap battle, going head to head with Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli.

‘Ray for the slay!’ Home And Away star Ray Meagher, who plays Alf Stewart, put the script down and stepped behind the microphone, taking on Fitzy And Wippa’s rap battle
His 38-year-old opponent started the challenge, rapping to Eminem’s 1999 hit ‘My Name Is’ and using some of Alf’s most memorable catch calls.
One line included: ‘Are you really rapping today or is that a bad cough/ I don’t want you to be caught out yelling “hey, bugger off”.
He then went on to present a hilarious, but limp rhyme: ‘Hey Ray did you hear about Fitzy’s staph infection, he needed anti-fungal/ and to be honest I just needed a word that rhymed with flamin’ mongrel/ mongrel this and mongrel that, yeah Fitzy needed anti-fungal.’
In with a win? Wippa thought he was on to a winner with his rhyme by using some of Alf’s most memorable catch calls such as ‘bugger off’ and flamin’ mongrel, and celebrated by dabbing
The veteran actor approached his rhyme with poetic feel: ‘OK guys now here’s the plan/ a broken down footy star thinks he’s the man/ he met an old porn star known as The Wippa/ people soon called him the Wippa snipper.’
He rapped on: ‘They agreed on the name Fitzy and Wippa/ and for a while it was a bit of a ratings dipper.’
However, despite most challengers cheekily roast the host and the show, Alf ended his rap with a compliment: ‘bit by bit they did ok/ I guess that’s why they’re here today.’
Streuth! The veteran actor approached his rhyme with poetic feel. He joked that Wippa was an ‘old porn star’
Producer Sarah called Wippa’s rap ‘shocking’ and awarded the win to Ray.
Fans took to social media to praise the actor for his rhyming prowess, one wrote: ‘Ray for the slay!’
‘No dabbing from Alf??? Hahah,’ another follower joked.
‘The Legend himself!!! #wippaisaflaminmongrel,’ another added.
