“We already have so many thrilling adventures locked in for 2023 but in true Carrie and Tommy style, I am sure none of those will go as planned!”

Tommy joking responded: “We’re here for a good time and a long time. Carrie is my best mate so another four years of riding her coat tails is a dream come true.”

After 13 years on The Project, Carrie admitted: ”It’s no secret that this show has become a second home to me.”

But Channel 10 is yet to announce her replacement, but while on news.com.au‘s podcast I’ve Got News For You her BFF Kate Langbroek has suggested guest panelist Chrissie Swan, Georgie Tunny and Studio 10 host Sarah Harris as potential contenders.

“Well, I actually think there’s probably a good chance of it being one of those three,” she said.

All three of the candidates have featured on The Project before, Georgie and Chrissie presented earlier this year as Carrie took extended leave.
