“What’s wrong with the other 40?” Kerri-Anne asked, shedding light on the poll.
Host Andy Lee assured him, “More than half the country knows who you are.”
Oddly enough, one of 100 Australians surveyed thought Kerri-Anne was Hollywood actress Goldie Hawn.
Phew! The dean of daytime television, 68, was introduced to a sample of 100 people who were asked if they knew who she was. She was nervous at first not to be recognized, but was relieved when 60% of those polled knew her.
A more knowledgeable fan correctly described her as “the queen of Australian television.”
Kerri-Anne is best known for hosting the midday daytime chat show from 1996 to 1998. She also had her own eponymous show, which aired on Nine from 2002 to 2011.
Most recently, she was a panelist on Studio 10 from 2018-2020, and appeared as a consultant on Celebrity Apprentice in 2015.
It’s her! Kerri-Anne was first mistaken for Hollywood star Goldie Hawn before a male fan aptly called her the “Queen of Australian TV” in a quiz.
It comes after Kerri-Anne sold her mansion in posh Sydney suburb of Woollahra for $ 22 million.
The property, located behind the popular Chiswick Restaurant, has a swimming pool, a self-catering studio with internal lift and a three-car garage.
Kerri-Anne plans to downsize after the death of her husband, John Kennerley.
