Carrie Bickmore confirms date for return to THE PROJECT
Its Official, Carrie Bickmore is returning to full-time hosting duties at The Project next month.
Bickmore will be back behind The Project desk from Monday July 8. After an eight-month maternity leave break, the Gold Logie award winner joins Waleed Aly and Peter Helliar to bring you the latest news delivered differently.
Carrie returns just in time for The Project’s 10th anniversary celebrations with a special 90-minute episode planned for Friday, 19 July.
Bickmore gave birth to her third child, Adelaide last December. The Gold Logie winning host has two other children, Evie and Oliver.
The popular host returned to afternoon radio program Carrie and Tommy in March, but had largely stayed away from her TV commitments until now.
Bickmore and radio co-host Tommy Little attended a Spice Girls concert in the UK last week. The duo had hoped to record an interview with the girls for The Project, but it’s understood this was cancelled at the last minute.
Carrie said: “I can’t believe it’s been 10 years! It only feels like yesterday I was sitting on the desk in a cold sweat waiting for the first show to begin. I have loved watching the show (and my hair) change and evolve over the decade. It’s been like a second home to me and I feel so fortunate to work next to genuine friends.”
It’s been a busy 12 months for Carrie with the birth of her third child Adelaide. She has received an OAM for her service to brain cancer awareness while her charity, Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer has now raised an incredible $11.5 million since its launch in 2015.
