Triple M host claims he was kicked out of luxury resort Qualia on Hamilton Island after leaking a photo of George and Amal Clooney to the press


A Triple M radio host has claimed he was asked to leave a luxury Queensland resort after an awkward situation with George and Amal Clooney.

Speaking on his Gold Coast radio show, Ben ‘Dobbo’ Dobbin told listeners that he was forced to cut his honeymoon short while staying at the award-winning Qualia resort on Hamilton Island, after marrying his wife Amity in early November.

He explained that his wife spotted Amal, 43, after visiting the resort’s spa and decided to take a sneaky photo, which was later leaked to Channel Nine news.

‘Unbeknowst to us, Amal and George and Julia Roberts were staying at Qualia at the same time we were there. We didn’t know the laws. I don’t know the laws of Hamilton Island. I love Hamilton Island and hope to one day go back to Qualia,’ he said on his radio show.

‘Amity being a good wife took a sneaky photo and sent it to me. Well I happened to pass this onto somebody I know – low and behold it ended up on the 6pm news on Channel 9 that night.’

Ben went on to say that he and his wife ‘thought nothing of it’, but were forced to cut their holiday short by two days after being instructed to leave the resort the next day.

Julia Roberts and George started filming Ticket to Paradise last month on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane, and then moved to The Whitsundays shortly afterwards. 

The high-profile actors play a divorced couple who travel to Bali in a desperate bid to stop their daughter, played by Kaitlyn Dever, from getting married.

The movie also stars Billie Lourd as Dever’s best friend, who travels with her to Bali, where she decides to marry a local.

It was revealed in March that George and Julia were heading to Australia to film the hotly anticipated project. 

George relocated to Australia in October with Amal and the couple’s five-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella. 

Despite spending their mandatory 14-day quarantine period at a sprawling NSW Southern Highlands estate rather than the usual hotel, George still had an issue with the conditions.  

‘You have to stay in one place for 14 days until you’re finally allowed to go out and breathe,’ he told WTF podcast host Marc Maron.

Julia also jetted into Australia in October, spending her quarantine period at a $56.9million mansion in Sydney’s Vaucluse.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Qualia for comment.
