TV presenter Erin Jayne Plummer, best known for Aerobics Oz and TVSN & Studio 10 advertorial hosting, has died.

This morning, Studio 10 paid tribute to one of its team, describing her as a bubbly personality with a megawatt smile.

“Erin was just a gorgeous human inside and out and if it wasn’t for TV perhaps Erin Jayne might have had a sporting career. She represented Australia in synchronised swimming and even surf lifesaving. There is 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,” said Sarah Harris.

Erin Jayne’s career began when she was plucked from hundreds of beach goers at Manly to star in an NBC television commercial as the ‘Face of Australia’. The Australian Tourism Commission campaign also led to her being cast on Baywatch Australia.

She became the ‘The Danoz Girl’ selling everything from Slim Jeans to Steam Mops on Mornings With Kerri-Anne, The Morning Show and The Circle. She also presented on Foxtel’s TVSN for many years, was Beach Reporter for Channel 10 at the Coolangatta Gold and was an Aerobics Oz Style presenter for six years, with a worldwide audience of 40 million people.

Other gigs included countless TVCs and voice-overs and she represented Australia at three World Championships in synchronised swimming, winning 11 national titles.


Today Extra‘s David Campbell said, “For those of you who have been watching our show for many years, you would recognise longtime advertorial presenter Erin Jayne Plummer. Sadly, we heard the news yesterday that Erin Jayne had passed away, and she was just a beautiful person and a friend to many of our colleagues here at Today Extra. We just want to send our thoughts to her family and friends and show them some love and support at this really, really sad time.

Sylvia Jeffreys added, “Much love to her husband and children, and may she now rest in peace.”
