She might have been axed from Studio 10 last month, but Kerri-Anne Kennerley isn’t cutting ties with the network just yet. Despite whispers that she might be moving to Nine, New Idea can exclusively reveal the Aussie TV legend has inked a six-figure deal to appear on the third season of The Masked Singer! “She’s left the lowest-rating show on the network to go to one of the highest-rating shows,” dishes an insider. “Before leaving the building, Kerri-Anne met with executives to negotiate being on the next series of The Masked Singer. It was a no-brainer and the deal was signed straight away. She’s getting about $100,000.” Kerri-Anne, who turns 67 this week, has always loved belting out a tune.

trouble in paradise for dr chris?

It may have been his birthday weekend, but Dr Chris Brown barely cracked a smile during an outing with girlfriend Brooke Meredith in Sydney’s Bondi Beach last week. “Chris looked downright miserable,” one onlooker said of The Living Room host. “And their body language screamed tension ... it was like they’d just had a huge row or something.” Dr Chris, 42, and Brooke, 29, began dating earlier this year after meeting through mutual friends. However, in May, it was claimed they’d hit a bump in the road and the handsome vet even shared a photo of a cat in July and said, “There’s been no more dependable partner in the pandemic than a face like this.”…

sparks fly for matt smith & emilia clarke

After dumping Lily James for his The Crown co-star Claire Foy, it seems Matt Smith has moved on yet again – this time to Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke. The pair was spotted on a dinner date in London last week. Sources tell New Idea the date was a “long time coming”, with the duo sharing “undeniable chemistry” even when they starred together in Terminator Genisys back in 2015. “They kept it friendly as Matt was in a relationship. This is the first time they’ve been single at the same time so they decided to give it a shot – and so far it’s working out well.” With several dates now under their belts, Matt, 37, and Emilia, 33, are eager to see where things lead and are just happy that it’s…

Just three months after announcing her engagement to Richard Lavender, Samantha Armytage has pulled the plug on their upcoming country wedding. The COVID-19 pandemic is responsible for the postponement, with the Sunrise host, 44, explaining, “Because we want to have a party with more than 20 people, we have put it on hold ... There is no point, until we can actually make a proper plan in booking anything, so no plans yet, but we will get there.”…
