She is back! Kerri-Anne Kennerley RETURNS to Studio 10 alongside Jessica Rowe – after being dumped last year due to Covid budget cuts
Studio 10 revealed this week that a number of the show’s former presenters are making a comeback.
But before viewers get too excited, some of the fan favorites are only returning for a special commemorating 2,000 episodes of the show, rather than returning to their jobs.
Among those expected to return for the special are Jessica Rowe and Kerri-Anne Kennerley, 67, who was ruthlessly excluded from the program in August last year.

She also reflected on the tragic moment her late husband John died aged 78 in 2019 from complications of a fall, and said the morning show and her co-stars “saved” her from the depths of despair.
“Coming to work literally saved me. You, our audience, as well as you, literally saved me, ”she said at the time.
Sarah Harris praised Kerri-Anne, calling her “strong, insanely funny and a beautiful woman.”
