Announcing Erin’s death on Monday, a sombre Sarah Harris said: ‘We’ve got some really sad news to share this morning.

‘Over the weekend, Studio 10 lost a bit of its sparkle with our friend and advertorial host Erin Jayne passing away suddenly.

‘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 synchronised swimmer and even surf life saving, and there’s no question that Erin Jayne was a high achiever, and certainly a gold-medal mum to her three young girls.’

She concluded: ‘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.’

Angela Bishop added: ‘Her career began when she was plucked from a Sydney beach to star in an international tourism campaign, then came Aerobics Oz Style.’

Reflecting on her years on Aerobics Oz Style during a previous appearance on Studio 10, Erin said the program appealed to global audiences because of the ‘beautiful’ weather and scenery of Australia on display.

She said: ‘It [aired] in over 80 countries. For those people waking up in England where it’s a freezing cold morning and they’re seeing the beautiful scenery of Australia and the beaches, I think is a nice way to start the day.’

More to come.
