A woman of many talents, Natalie has had a long association with Network 10 with previous appearances on Neighbours as manipulative schemer Izzy, chef Gillian in The Wrong Girl and her standout role as presenter on the reality dance hit, So You Think You Can Dance Australia.

More recently Natalie joined other celebrities to face her fears in the South African jungle on season four of 10’s hit family entertainment show I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!.

Natalie has a passion for design – from launching kids label Chi Khi in 2015, to renovating her own properties, her love of architecture and the whole design process makes her the perfect host of Changing Rooms.

Her understanding of the pressure involved in high paced makeovers will see Natalie working alongside friends and families as they strive to build a better life for each other.

Natalie is one of Australia’s most versatile entertainers; she can dance, she can act, she can write…the list goes on. Natalie is not only talented, but also well-loved; having received Logie nominations for Most Popular Actress and Most Popular Presenter, as well as two Gold Logie nominations.

Did we mention that she can sing? Her solo album, hit number one in 2009 and band The Rogue Traders achieved multi-platinum sales across two albums, as well as two APRA nominations, an MTV award win, and seven ARIA nominations. There really isn’t much she can’t do.

And if she can’t do it now, boy is she up for the challenge. Natalie will be hands on as she learns new skills, shares her knowledge of how to create the perfect space and helps the contestants deliver rooms that will enhance, energise and excite.

With her warm and positive outlook, Natalie is the perfect choice to guide every day Australians through the rewarding, but sometimes stressful, process of renovations.
