Denise Drysdale Is Allegedly Going To Quit Studio 10 Today
Studio 10 appears to be struggling to hold on to it’s co-hosts with news circling that Denise Drysdale will follow in the steps of Ita Buttrose and Jessica Rowe and quite the morning talk show.
Entertainment reporter Peter Ford first broke the news to his social media following in a tweet yesterday saying that he had “exclusive” information about Denise leaving her post on the Network 10 show.
Exclusive. It’s true Denise has a new baby on the way and is leaving Studio 10. Full details tomorrow across Australia and NZ. pic.twitter.com/NwV1cXUxtl— Peter Ford (@mrpford) August 15, 2018
In a later tweet her told his followers that the news would be officially announced this morning on the Studio 10 program.
Ha! It will be officially announced tomorrow. Ironically tomorrow I also celebrate 20 years of Channel 10 officially denying stories I report end up being 100% true! https://t.co/204vzyAAyA— Peter Ford (@mrpford) August 15, 2018
Speaking with Kyle and Jackie O this morning, Peter said that the reasoning behind her departure might have something to do with money and the fact that she constantly has to travel from the Gold Coast.
“Later this morning Denise Drysdale is going to announce that she’s quitting the Studio 10 show,” he said.
“I think for a start they don’t pay that much and she’s now got the new house all built on the Gold Coast and she’s got a new baby on the way…a fury baby, she’s adopted a dog…and she’s got the cat so when she comes down to Sydney it all gets difficult to try to organise someone to look after the cat and now the dog.”
Peter Ford also told us that Denise is going to be focusing more on her podcast with good friend and previous co-host of Studio 10 Jessica Rowe.
“They’ve got their podcast together, that’s going great guns and in fact they’re going to start going around doing live shows based on the podcast,” he continued.
Mr Ford believes that the news will be announced on Studio 10 this morning, however, he said that Denise hasn’t really been keeping quiet about it and has been telling people at her shows across the country.
“Someone tweeted yesterday that they’d overheard a conversation from Denise at the Coolangatta airport where she was talking on the phone saying that she’d quit the show,” said Peter.
“And so I put a tweet out in saying, Óh I wonder if anyone’s heard anything', and tweets came back to me, she’s been on the road doing her club act around the country towns and apparently she’s been announcing it onstage.”
“So she’s been telling everyone but no one had actually told the staff working on the show, he concluded.”
We guess we’ll just have to wait and see if Denise actually does say goodbye for good on their show this morning which starts on channel 10 at 8:30am.
But if she does go who's going to throw around the brussel sprouts at the next show Christmas party? Too soon..?
Denise Drysdale has addressed the rumours that she's leaving Studio 10 and has said that she is in fact staying. She told her audience that she will be taking a break for a short period of time before returning to the show.
Entertainment Peter Ford came back on with Kyle and Jackie O after this announcement to dispute the claims that she's staying on the show. Peter said that Denise's manager told him that she won't be appearing regularly on the show but may do a few appearances.
