It’s official: taking over at Kyle and Jackie O’s 2Day FM slot are none other than… Jules Lund, Sophie Monk and Merrick Watts and Mel B. Yep, the Spice Girl.
The news was tweeted last night by entertainment writer Peter Ford, and Melissa Hoyer, the entertainment editor for news.com.au.
The official announcement from 2DayFM was planned for today, and they’ve posted it on their website, writing:
Come on down Jules Lund, MerrickWatts and Sophie Monk who will be joined daily with the outrageously talented and not-so-scary Mel B!
This show’s going to be a blast and you gotta be happy with that!
Jules Lund previously worked on the afternoon drive-home segment with Fifi Box, who will take over the Today Network’s breakfast show in Melbourne.
Sophie Monk joined the Today Network in September as a co-host for their weekend breakfast show with Dave Thornton. Mel B is the former Spice Girl who also had a stint as a judge on The X Factor.
