"Three decades of live television is just not enough. I can't wait to get the adrenaline pumping again and join the wonderful Studio 10 team two days a week," Kerri-Anne said in a statement from the network.

"There is a slight feeling of coming home to TEN, where I enjoyed over a decade of fabulous live television. I have a feeling it will be a lot of fun."

Joining regular hosts Sarah Harris, Joe Hildebrand, Angela Bishop, Denise Scott and Denise Drysdale, the 64-year-old is set to bring a familiarity which will bring a breath of fresh air to the popular show.

The TV Week Logie Hall of Fame winner, who is about to turn 65 this month, took a step back from the spotlight to care for her husband John, who was confined to a wheelchair after suffering a spinal cord injury in 2016.
