Chrissie Swan's new TV gig

There was a little cheer from women across Australia this morning when Chrissie Swan announced she is returning to TV, hosting Network Ten’s Can of Worms.

Chrissie released a statement: “The opportunity to host a smart, weekly show with all sorts of unexpected moments is the perfect fit for me. I always said I’d do a TV show if it was the right one. This format and the team behind it are too good to be true.”

A former The Circle presenter and reality TV star, Chrissie hosts the 3pm Pick-up on Mix 106.5 and caused a stir earlier this year on the cover of Women’s Weekly. You can read all about that here.

And just because we can, here is a gallery of the lovely Chrissie Swan.

Radio presenter and former Circle co-host Chrissie Swan has today been announced as the new host of Network Ten’s Can of Worms.

The issues-based talk show is expected back on the air in August as the networks re-tool post Olympics. Ten has been eager to bring the show back this year, but has struggled to find a suitable host. Paul Henry was a serious contender, while Charlie Pickering was also discussed.

Swan, the 2010 TV Week Logie winner and mother-of-two, left daily daytime show The Circle to spend more time with her family, but has been lured back to fill the seat left vacant after Ian “Dicko” Dickson publicly sacked himself as host last year.
