Studio 10 celebrates its 1,000th episode this morning, honouring the achievement with a live and glamorous event for audience members and friends of the show.
For the past five years and 2,500-plus hours of live television, five of Australia’s most popular television personalities – Sarah Harris, Joe Hildebrand, Jessica Rowe, Ita Buttrose and Denise Drysdale – have delivered constant laughs, entertainment, excitement and exclusive interviews to lounge rooms across Australia.
Co-host Sarah Harris said: “I am so thrilled to be celebrating Studio 10’s 1,000th episode. This milestone could not have been possible without our loyal fans, who we love dearly and we are forever thankful for all the support they give us.
“I feel so lucky to work alongside close friends and mentors every day and am immensely proud to be a part of such a wonderfully supportive work family.”
Co-host Joe Hildebrand said: “I cannot believe that we have been around for 1,000 episodes. Seriously, I actually can’t believe it. To be paid money to hang out with my friends every day arguing about life, the universe and everything is not just too good to be true, it’s downright criminal. And if the authorities ever find out I’ll tell them it was Ita.”
As part of today’s special event celebration, long-time friend of the show, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang, adds her well-wishes and the panel will also be joined by legendary singer and dancer, Paula Abdul.
Many regular guests return as the panel reminisce about their most controversial interviews, moving moments and, of course, those bloopers that should have never made morning television. Rounding out the day will be a star-studded reel of 1,000th episode congratulations from the show’s nearest and dearest.
Nominated for a 2017 TV Week Logie Award for Best News Panel or Current Affairs Program, Studio 10 has cemented its place in Australia’s morning television landscape and audiences keep coming back for more.
Studio 10 airs 8:30 pm weekdays on Ten
