Lisa Wilkinson just had the greatest dig at her former co-host Karl Stefanovic.

Lisa Wilkinson has taken an epic jab at her former Today co-host Karl Stefanovic.

She made fun of Stefanovic’s infamous ‘drunk’ broadcast the morning after the Logies in 2009, where he appeared looking a little… off, while slurring his words and gushing over how pretty Wilkinson looked at the awards the night before.

Although awkward to watch, the incident did little to harm Stefanovic’s career. In fact, he went on to win the Gold Logie just two years later.

Wilkinson’s response came after comedian Shaun Micallef tweeted a headline about former ABC boss Michelle Guthrie’s payout to drop court action against the national broadcaster.

“Damn! There goes the publicity budget for my Logies campaign,” he wrote – which drew responses from TV personalities including Annabel Crabb and Rove McManus who joked about how far they’d go to win a Logie.

Ideas included colluding with Russia and child labour (all in jest, of course), before Wilkinson joined in with this:


Wilkinson didn't name names and her The Project co-host Peter Helliar jokingly responded to ask if she was talking about him, but we all know who it was really directed at.

In 2014, five years after the incident, Stefanovic finally admitted he was still drunk during the broadcast.

"It wasn’t any different to any other year - we all get smashed at the Logies and go to work the next day. We’d done it for years and years... I remember seeing it on Today Tonight and going 'Oh god.' I really was drunk, or at least I certainly looked and sounded drunk."
