The makeover show launched with around 1.4 mil­lion view­ers, but it pe­tered out.

In 2009, her Syd­ney-based ra­dio show with McKenney also ended.

In re­cent times Kruger has done the oc­ca­sional ad­ven­ture or celebrity re­port for cur­rent af­fairs show Sun­day Night.

The down­side of Seven be­ing so suc­cess­ful in the rat­ings is that op­por­tu­ni­ties to host new shows have just about dried up.

Kruger says she is com­mit­ted to Dancing with the Stars, but would love to work with McPher­son to find and de­velop other TV for­mats.

If you look at peo­ple like Andrew O’Keefe, Larry (Em­dur), Grant (Denyer) and me, there are only so many ve­hi­cles ( TV shows) to go around,’’ Kruger says.

‘‘ Peo­ple say ‘ you need to de­velop your own thing’ (but) it is very dif­fi­cult.’’

What­ever the fu­ture holds for Kruger — baby or not, her own TV show or not — she seems con­tent.

Maybe that is be­cause, af­ter the tur­moil of her mar­riage break-up, she is rel­ish­ing some sta­bil­ity in her life.

‘‘ Craig is a fan­tas­tic part­ner,’’ she says.

‘‘ He to­tally un­der­stands this busi­ness. We al­ways have some­thing to talk about.’’ Dancing with the Stars Chan­nel 7, Sun­day, 6.30pm (Be­low left): Craig McPher­son with Kruger and (be­low) Kruger with Ge­of­frey and Brynne Edel­sten.
