Australian TV star Erin Jayne Plummer has passed away "suddenly" at the age of 42.

The TV host was known for presenting on talk show Studio 10 and shopping channel TVSN and had always been a friendly face on Aussie TV.

The presenter's tragic death was announced by her devastated Studio 10 co-presenters, Sarah Harris and Angela Bishop over the weekend.

The cause of Erin's untimely death has not yet been revealed.

Paying tribute to her co-star, Sarah began: "We’ve got some really sad news to share this morning.

"Over the weekend, Studio 10 lost a bit of its sparkle with our friend and advertorial host Erin Jayne passing away suddenly.

"For two decades, Erin Jayne’s been a friendly and familiar face on Australian telly and for a lot of that, she’s been brightening up our mornings with her bubbly personality and mega-watt smile."

Sarah went on: "Erin was just a gorgeous human inside and out, and if it wasn’t for TV, perhaps Erin may have had a sporting career.

"She represented Australia in synchronised swimming and even surf life saving, and there’s no question that Erin Jayne was a high achiever, and certainly a gold-medal mum to her three young girls."
