Denise Scott QUITS Studio 10 just a month after she escaped the network’s brutal budget cuts

Australian comedienne Denise Scott has announced she has quit Studio 10.

On Monday’s episode of Have You Been Paying Attention?, the 65-year-old said: ‘I’m no longer the correspondent. I’ve been in lockdown since March, and I just simply ran out of things to correspond about!’

This comes just a month after Channel 10 confirmed Denise would be staying on at the morning talk show as a Melbourne-based contributor amidst their brutal budget cuts which saw 25 employees axed from their positions.

On Saturday, the network confirmed that professional dancer Tristan MacManus would be joining journalist Sarah Harris as the new hosts of the show.  

Tristan and Sarah will be joined by news reporter Narelda Jacobs, entertainment reporter Angela Bishop, and contributors Denise Drysdale, Jono Coleman and Craig Bennett.

Channel 10 had confirmed that Denise would also be remaining as a regular contributor on the show.

Denise initially quit the show as a full-time panellist in July 2019, due to the constant travel between Channel 10’s Sydney studios and her Melbourne home.

The program went on to create a role for her as their Melbourne correspondent.

However, it appears the lack of work during the COVID-19 pandemic has forced her to part ways from the network.
