Sonia Kruger stuns in plunging sequinned dress at star-studded event

The Gold Logie winner made sure all eyes were on her at Seven's Upfronts in Sydney.

Gold Logie winner Sonia Kruger brought her fashion A-game to the red carpet in Sydney last night, showing up at the glitzy event in a plunging sequin dress.

The 58-year-old The Voice host donned a design by Australian designer Alex Perry at Seven’s Upfronts media event at the ICC.

Sonia definitely stood out from the crowd in the glittering number, which she paired with a pair of perspex heels, a diamond necklace and a grey blazer.

During the event, it was announced that Sonia will be back as the host of The Voice in 2024 and also host the new series of Big Brother Uncut, a raunchy 7Plus-only series that was axed in 2006.


But the big news of the night was that Sonia will be joined by a new co-host for the next season of Dancing With The Stars, with Chris Brown taking over from Daryl Somers.

It's not the first time the pair will have come together, as in July, they both hosted the TV Week Logie Awards red carpet.

During an appearance on Triple M’s Mick & MG in the Morning in July, Chris admitted he didn't think he was the best person to be reporting from the red carpet.

“Can I just tell you, it is one of the more stupid decisions ever made by the Seven Network to put me on the red carpet,” he remarked. “I know nothing about fashion, and I am also colourblind.

“So the joy that I’m going to have in telling women that I love their green dress and going to be told it’s red… what could possibly go wrong? The insulting nature of my commentary is going to be worth it.”

Daryl Somers speaks out

Daryl Somers decided to take matters into his own hands and post the news of his replacement to Facebook before Seven had the chance to reveal it at the Upfronts.

“Hi All, Just want to confirm the speculation that I will not be hosting Dancing With The Stars in 2024. Seven let me know recently that they have signed Chris Brown to the network full-time and amongst his commitments he will be hosting DWTS,” Daryl wrote on Facebook.

“I realise how fortunate I have been to have had such a long and wonderful run with the programme. Over a twenty year span, starting in 2004, I have completed ten series, the last one being a huge ratings success. Off the back of that I am happy to hand the Mirror Ball over to Chris and wish him all the very best. He should enjoy working with a great team both in front of and behind the camera.”

Daryl also went on to say that he will miss working with his co-host, Sonia Kruger and judges Todd McKenney and Mark Wilson but he is ‘now unencumbered to pursue the projects I put on hold during Covid and shall have some exciting news on that score early next year.’
