Studio 10 has today announced that Denise Drysdale will be joining the show in 2016.

Ita Buttrose is set to scale back her appearances on the show to 2 days per week, with Drysdale set to replace her on the panel for the other 3 days.

Buttrose, 73, said she wishes to spend more time with her family and also plans to write a book in the new year.

Avid viewers will recall Drysdale recently filled in for Buttrose for a week of Studio 10 last month, with the TV veteran also a series regular on previous morning show The Circle between 2010-11.

Sarah Harris is also due to head on maternity leave in a matter of weeks, with Tarsh Belling set to replace her in early 2016.

What are your thoughts on the changes for next year? Are you excited for Ding-Dong or will you miss having Ita on the panel full time? Let me know your thoughts below…

Studio 10 airs weekdays 8:30am on Channel Ten
