While you were busy being distracted by Carrie Bickmore’s shock new hair colour (spoiler: it’s amazing), something else went down on The Project last night.
In between the tweets praising Carrie for her brunette transformation were some not-so-nice comments aimed at the co-host, for something she said to guest panelist Steve Price earlier in the show.
After discussing the discovery of a giant truffle, Carrie labelled Price a ‘wanker’, after he suggested that spending $3,700 on the delicacy would be “no problem”.
“You’re a wanker” she said, as she nonchalantly continued on to the next segment.
Some viewers were outraged that Carrie had made the statement on live television, in front of their families.
Can Carrie please explain "wanker" to my kids who just heard her say it?
Way to go Carrie! ????
