Shelley Lorraine Illif (born 21 June 1976) known professionally as Shelley Craft is an Australian television personality.
Craft began her television career in the early 1990s with a work experience stint at Channel Seven in Brisbane. This led to a job offer as a production assistant on a local program, and a few months later a co-host role with children's program Saturday Disney.
Craft remained with Saturday Disney as host and segment producer for six years. Craft joined The Great Outdoors as a reporter in late 2001 and therefore chose to leave Saturday Disney in July 2002 whilst returning on occasion up until October 2005. Craft had one final appearance on Saturday Disney through flashbacks during an episode broadcast during September 2009, celebrating 1000 episodes of the program.
As well as presenting stories for The Great Outdoors, she has worked on several of Channel Seven's major sporting events, including the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney (as part of the Sunrise team), the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Melbourne Cups.
Along with puppet, Agro, Craft hosted the short-lived revival of dating game show Perfect Match Australia in late 2002. In 2005, she co-hosted Australia's Guinness World Records with Grant Denyer.
In 2006 Craft also joined Grant Denyer in presenting the annual telecast of Carols in the Domain.
After the 2007 season, Craft left The Great Outdoors after a clean-out of the show, with several other presenters also shown the door.
Later in 2008, Craft did a commercial for National Tree Day, followed by advertisements for Jetstar in late 2009.
In 2011, Craft again presented alongside Scott Cam, this time in the competition series The Block. Craft hosted the Friday night special episodes titled The Block: Unlocked and appeared in numerous regular episodes, presenting challenges to contestants. She has since remained on The Block, presenting challenges and serving as a secondary host to Scott Cam.
In 2013, she presented the 'Showdown' edition of Big Brother Australia.
Craft was married to marketing expert Brett De Billinghurst Craft from 2001–2007. She later moved from Brisbane to Melbourne with her then-partner Christian Sergiacomi who is a cameraman for the Nine Network. Craft and Sergiacomi later married at their holiday home in Byron Bay, in November 2009.
