Australian TV host who had been a familiar face on Australian television screens for decades has died “suddenly.”
It was a sad day when news broke that Erin Jayne Plummer, the bubbly and beloved television personality, had passed away suddenly at the age of just forty-two. Plummer was a household name in Australia, known for her work as a presenter on Studio 10 and TVSN, where she brightened up mornings with her infectious personality and megawatt smile.
But Plummer’s career wasn’t limited to infomercials and shopping channels. She was a proud Australian who had represented her country in synchronized swimming, earning eleven national titles and competing in three world championships. Plummer was a high achiever, and her passion for fitness and wellness led her to present for Aerobics Oz Style for six years, providing aerobics content for a global audience of more than forty million people.
Plummer’s sudden passing left her colleagues and fans in shock. Fellow Studio 10 hosts Sarah Harris and Angela Bishop spoke fondly of their co-host, describing her as a “gorgeous” and “beloved” personality who brought joy and light to their mornings. Plummer is survived by her husband and three daughters, to who she was a devoted and loving mother.
Studio 10 presenter Sarah Harris said:
“For two decades, Erin has been a friendly and familiar face on Australian telly, and for a lot of that, she’s been brightening up our mornings with her bubbly personality and megawatt smile. Erin was just a gorgeous human inside and out, and if it wasn’t for TV, perhaps Erin may have had a sporting career.
She represented Australia in synchronized swimming and even surf lifesaving, and there’s no question that Erin Jayne was a high achiever, and certainly a gold-medal mum to her three young girls… We’ll miss your sunshine around the studio, Erin Jayne, and all of us here are sending lots of love and strength to her family. You’ll be very missed.”
