But four months on from losing her gig of more than 20 years with the network, veteran journalist Natarsha Belling is returning to TV, but this time for a competitor.

The 45-year-old has started freelancing at the Seven Network, and is filling in for The Morning Show host Kylie Gillies while she is on leave.

The mother-of-two will co-host the breakfast program alongside Larry Emdur, who welcomed her to the team in a hilarious Instagram post on Monday.

‘Demonstrating to @natarshabelling how I function by using my Ron Burgundy doll… Look who’s come to play, we’ve known each other for sooo long but never hosted together,’ the 56-year-old captioned his post.

‘Tarsh is about to discover how much of a massive tv tosser I’ve become .. let’s go @morningshowon7.’

Her start was also celebrated on The Morning Show’s official Instagram account, which uploaded a picture of the duo on set and smiling ear-to-ear.
