Marcia Hines returns as Australian Idol judge

Rumours are true… Marcia Hines is returning as a judge of Australian Idol for 2024.

She joins Kyle Sandilands and Amy Shark on the panel for the returning Seven show.

The original Idol judge was a guest judge last year which was well-received by fans and previously teased a return in a podcast.

It isn’t clear if there will be a fourth judge with Harry Connick Jr. and Meghan Trainor in doubt to return.

Ricki-Lee Coulter and Scott Tweedie return as hosts. Raw auditions have been underway since August.

Filming with audience begins next week in Sydney for the arrival of judges, with an audition later this month at Roslyn Packer Theatre.

Seven holds its 2024 Upfronts on October 18.
