Police 10/7 is returning to our screens this week as 10/7 Aotearoa - and one very familiar face will be co-hosting the show.

Alongside Detective Senior Sergeant Rob Lemoto - who has co-host of the show since 2014 - will be Coast's very own Sam Wallace.

Taking to Instagram to announce the exciting news, Sam wrote: "Yes I know, I’m the Robin in this relationship.

"Happy to be working alongside this legend on the all-new Ten 7 Aotearoa. My first episode is this Thursday on @tvnz.official."

TVNZ has announced the new iteration of the show - which has been on air since 2002 - will launch on May 5 with "a refreshed look at policing in New Zealand".

The broadcaster said the new version of the popular reality show would "highlight the vital work of the New Zealand police" while the new name signified "the programme's increased focus in featuring a broader range of communities around New Zealand".
