Lisa Wilkinson reveals truth about Today feud

Lisa Wilkinson has responded to rumours of a feud between herself and her Today Show colleague Sylvia Jeffreys.

A piece published in Saturday’s Sydney Morning Heraldreported Lisa and Sylvia “barely speak off camera” making the set of the popular morning show a very uncomfortable place to be.

But Lisa has furiously denied the rift rumours, insisting she and Sylvia are extremely close.

“As you all know, Sylvia and I are great mates and love working together,” Lisa posted on Instagram, next to a selfie of the pair.

“But for some bizarre reason, a journalist at the Sydney Morning Herald decided to report on supposed ‘rumours of a rift’ between us.

“So let me tell you here what I told him – and I quote – ‘complete bullshit!’

“And when I suggested that the source that contacted him with this ‘rumour’ could be someone not happy with @thetodayshow now being the Number One breakfast show in the country, he agreed. But it was printed anyway.

“Sylvia and I couldn’t enjoy working together, be more supportive, or respect each other more. That, in fact, should be the headline! But obviously that sort of good news – or the crazy idea of women supporting women – doesn’t sell newspapers these days.”

Sylvia quickly re-tweeted Lisa’s post with the words: “And that is why I love working with Lisa! Nailed it. See you bright and early.”
