Carrie Bickmore is back from her recent Hawaiian holiday and getting straight back into delivering the Hollywood exclusives on The Project.

And on Wednesday night's episode, the pregnant host is hanging out with the one and only Katy Perry.

Katy Perry is Down Under for the Aussie leg of her Witness tour and ahead of her first show in Perth on Tuesday night, the 33-year-old singer caught up with Carrie Bickmore backstage.

"So much fun hanging with the generous and talented @katyperry in my hometown this arvo. We chatted, danced (well I did) and laughed. Can't wait to bring you the interview tomorrow night on @theprojecttv. Off to her concert now," Carrie explained alongside a cute backstage pic of the duo.

In another shot, the soon-to-be mum-of-three looks to be getting a dance lesson from the American pop princess.

"God help me. @katyperry your face says it all #embarrassing #backupdancer," Carrie joked.

Carrie's growing baby bump looked beautiful in a bodycon dress, which she teamed with knee-high boots and statement earrings.

Meanwhile, Katy took to Instagram to express her excitement to be back on our shores.

"Hello Perth ♥️ Doing a little reflecting on how far I've come, and how far I've yet to go 🌱 I'm SO grateful for this journey and am looking forward to a new chapter as I wrap up this YEAR long worldwide massive tour in Australia and New Zealand 16 more shows to go...," the Roar hitmaker said via Instagram.

We're so happy to see Carrie back rubbing shoulders with our favourite stars.

In June, Woman's Day reported there was tension behind the scenes of the Channel 10 show between Carrie and her co-star, Lisa Wilkinson.

At the time, it was revealed the biggest source of tension was the belief that Lisa had effectively stolen Carrie's thunder in terms of accessing 
big stars and the most coveted interviews – with a contractual clause promising her first rights.

"I know that Carrie was beyond annoyed Lisa's list of demands were agreed by the big bosses. But what really rankled was they agreed Lisa would be the showcase presenter and do all the big interviews," the source said.

Ten have denied any rumours of a feud between the two women, and both Carrie, 37, and Lisa, 58, have publicly slammed any rift.

Either way, we love it when Carrie gets to bring her special brand of magic to A-list interviews.

Lisa, pictured with Celine Dion, has been landing many of the A-list interviews on *The Project* and was sent to London to cover the Royal Wedding.
