According to the Sunday Telegraph, a Nine source confirms Sonia Kruger has officially signed with that network last Friday.
Rumours have surrounded the Dancing with the Stars host in recent weeks suggesting she would front Nine’s reincarnation of Big Brother in 2012.
Now it is confirmed Kruger will not only host Big Brother but will also replace Kerri-Anne in Nine’s weekday 9am-11am timeslot.
Kerri-Anne Kennerley, who has hosted her show in that time slot for nine years, has been “missing in action” for the past few weeks as others have hosted the show in her absense.
Kruger’s appointment comes as confirmation that Kerri-Anne will no longer appear on Nine. The new show, set to air in 2012, will be Sonia’s main focus over Big Brother.
