Studio 10 have announced that a number of former presenters will be returning to the program to commemorate ‘a mega milestone’.
Jessica Rowe, Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Denise Scott and Joe Hildebrand will return next week to celebrate a whopping 2000 episodes of the morning show.
Channel 10 announced the news on Wednesday, promising an “epic week of feel-good fun and frivolity”.
“Grab a party hat, breakfast smoothie and enjoy the COVID-safe festivities vicariously through our Studio 10 family,” the network said in a statement.
The talk show first premiered in 2013 with the debut line up consisting of Ita Buttrose, Joe Hildebrand, Sarah Harris and Jessica Rowe.
Sarah Harris is the only original presenter remaining on the show, with the current iteration also including Tristan MacManus, Angela Bishop, Narelda Jacobs, Daniel Doody and Denise Drysdale.

Another familiar face returns to Channel 10
The Studio 10 news comes shortly after Hamish Macdonald announced on Wednesday that he is heading back to Channel 10.
The 40-year-old became a regular co-host of The Sunday Project in 2017 after previous experience working with the network, but left in 2020 to host Q+A.
However, Hamish revealed on Monday that he was exiting the ABC current affairs program after 18 months.
He is set to be reunited with Lisa Wilkinson as co-host of The Sunday Project, starting in ‘early September’.
“I am over the moon to be returning to 10 and thrilled about the opportunity to make great local and international content with this dynamic group of producers and presenters,” Hamish said in a statement from Channel 10.
“It is also a total joy to be heading back to the desk with Lisa, Tommy [Little] and the people I love so much,” he added.
The announcement also had several viewers wondering if Hamish would be replacing an existing panellist, with some pointing the finger at the current co-host of The Sunday Project, Peter van Onselen.
A Network 10 spokesperson told Yahoo Lifestyle: “Peter van Onselen remains an integral member of The Project team.
“As 10’s Network Political Editor, he will be focussing strongly on the upcoming election and continue to break news from Canberra.”
The spokesperson also confirmed that Peter would not appear as regularly on The Sunday Project once Hamish returns.
