Cassandra Thorburn scores a gig on Studio 10

The former journalist embraces TV role

Cassandra Thorburn has been confirmed as a new cast member on morning chat show Studio 10, in the wake of her run on Channel 10 reality favourite Dancing With The Stars.

She has an interesting history with Studio 10 – see video below: 

Former journalist Cass says she’s excited to be a regular on the show. This follows a stint as a children’s book author. 

‘I’ll be working with Studio 10 on a more regular guest basis so that will be great,’ she told Yahoo Lifestyle

‘It’s great and opens the opinions of more experienced women, I guess, that are around my ilk.’

She will be hoping for a longer run than she had on DWTS. The media figure ended her stint this week after a string of sometimes harsh comments from judges.

Cassandra was formerly married to ex TODAY show star Karl Stefanovic. The duo have three children, Jackson, 19, Ava, 13, and River, 12.

She told News.com.au of her son Jackson, who has recently had a raised media profile: ‘I’m honoured to have earned the respect. I think that’s what every parent wants, to have earned the respect of their children.

‘Love is unconditional when you have kids and I guess they have unconditional love for you but to have earned their respect like that, I’m happy with that, very happy with that.’
