It’s an era many will recall fondly thanks to the incredible outfits, huge party scene and memorable music – and Kerri-Anne Kennerley brought back some magical 1970s disco fever on Studio 10 on Tuesday.
The 65-year-old TV star dazzled in a striped, glittery silver-and-black top with matching trousers, taking style inspiration from decades earlier. The top had a high neckline and clinched in mid-way down, showing off Kerri-Anne’s slim figure.
Wearing her blonde hair in loose waves around her shoulders, the star looked super glamorous as she posed backstage ahead of the TV show going to air.
Sharing a photo on their official Twitter page, the Studio 10 crew asked fans: “Does Kerri-Anne’s outfit remind you of anything?”
There were some hilarious replies, as Ten Daily simply commented with a photo of a zebra, while another fan added a picture of a glittery piano. Meanwhile, one wrote: “The 1970s, bell bottom pants were popular in that decade.”
Kerri-Anne later led the panellists on to the show and showed off some impressive dance moves as she emerged on to the stage in front of the cheering crowd, confidently sashaying her hips and waving her arm in the air.
Kerri-Anne is reportedly working just two days a week on the show while juggling time spent with family and her husband at home – something she previously insisted is her top priority.
In May of 2016, her then-75-year-old husband John suffered severe spinal injuries after falling from a balcony at a golf course. The courageous man was left an incomplete quadriplegic and bound to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
Admitting she has previously declined offers to return to morning TV, Kerri-Anne told the Daily Telegraph she finally feels ready to make the commitment – but will ensure she still has plenty of time with her husband, too.
“I do not want to do any more [days a week] because I value my life and lifestyle and time with my husband, John. I don’t want to slog at life,” she explained. “I am now in the wonderful part of my life where I can make choices for me. It is a bit of have fun, all care and no responsibility.”
