Denise Drysdale, Chrissie Swan, Yumi Stynes and Gorgi Coghlan will front TEN’s new morning show, The Circle.

The weekday show will air live at 10-12am weekdays following a one hour news service, beginning Tuesday February 9th.

As first revealed by TV Tonight in early December, the female panel show is being produced by former Hey Hey its Saturday producer, Pam Barnes.

Filmed in front of a studio audience, The Circle will feature a fifth guest panellist will join the 4 women each day. The show will incorporate email, Skype, live crosses, studio audience comments and even ‘old fashioned phone calls.’

TEN’s chief programming officer, David Mott said: “I’m delighted to welcome Chrissie, Yumi, Gorgi and Denise to the TEN stable. Smart and bold, each of these women bring a unique set of experiences to The Circle and I’m certain Australian audiences will embrace their warmth and vibrant sense of fun.”

Producer Pam Barnes said: “I’m thrilled to be a part of this exciting new show. All the issues that affect our busy lifestyles will be addressed daily on The Circle by four great women who will share what’s going on in their lives and yours.”

The Circle follows the end of 9AM with David and Kim after four years, but retains the network’s advertorial revenue.

TEN News which currently screens at 11am will move to 9am as part of the new line-up.

  1. Gorgi, I to hate grocery shopping go to Coles on line they have everything there and they carry it up stairs and unpack it for you.When baby goes to sleep you can shop on line I have a pad in the pantry so as I run out of things I jot them down. They are great I have been using them for 12 months and would Never go back to doing it my self .

  2. I love watching the Circle…its a great show…when Denise isn’t on!!!…The other women make it a show for everyone….Denise’s humour is dated and she stumbles when reading the tele-prompter!…Time for Denise to retire from TV, I think!

  3. The Circle is similar to The View – what I cannot understand is why chanel 10 does not think it important to have everyday mothers discussing everyday matters – and why not an Asian mother – Asians have a lot to contribute to society too.

  4. seeing Denise Drysdale, on a repeat of Spicks and Specks on ABC2 last week, just reminded me what a spontaneous and comic talent she is and it’s a shame she hasn’t been on our screens for so long. I reckon Denise and Chrissie will make great panel members. As much as this looks like a daytime version of The 7PM Project, and a re-hash of The Catch-Up, I hope it can overcome those perceptions and be a good addition to Ten’s lineup.
