TV presenter Rose Jacobs is sporting a very different look these days.

The former Ten Eyewitness News star and ex-wife of Steve Jacobs, the Weekend Today weatherman until recently, flaunted a blonde cropped ‘do on Instagram as she shared the news of her latest career move.

Rose, a mother of two, announced on Sunday that she had landed a corporate hosting gig with Adviser Ratings presenting the Together Australia web series.

Telling her followers she was ‘beyond delighted’ to be in front of the camera again, those who hadn’t visited her page in recent months would be forgiven for thinking she was a different person.

“And for some happy news,” Rose captioned a screenshot from her web series.

“My new show has just launched! I’m beyond delighted to be behind this campaign that is helping all of us through tough times.”

A scroll through her page reveals she’s been rocking the cropped hairstyle over her shoulder-length look for some time, but went blonde recently.

Rose, 41, has hosted a variety of shows on Nine, 10, Foxtel and The Weather Channel over the years. She also worked as a producer on Today where she met her ex-husband Steve Jacobs in 2007.

The couple separated in late 2017, just a few months after relocating to Vanuatu.

They sold their five-bedroom matrimonial home in Coogee for a staggering $4.6 million in April 2018, and share custody of daughters Isabella and Francesca

“Steve and Rosie had such a public image of the perfect happy family but behind the scenes there were struggles that would put strain on even the best marriage,” a friend told The Daily Telegraph at the time.

Opening up about their split in 2018, she told news.com.au they were “on knife’s edge” by the time they arrived to their new life in paradise.

“I’ve been through hell and back with this,” she said of the divorce.

Rose sought to apply for an AVO against her ex-husband in 2017, but no charges were laid.

Steve famously left the Today show in 2016 to focus on his family and their Vanuatu sea change. He returned to the network in late 2017 to present the weather on Weekend Today, before rejoining the main Today show in 2019.

When the show underwent a second overhaul the same year, he was let go and replaced by Tim Davies.

Steve now hosts a breakfast program on Nine’s radio station Magic 1278.
