When the Daily Mail EXPOSED Lisa Wilkinson for the heinous act of wearing the same shirt twice in four months, the breakfast show co-host responded with a very sincere apology.
“I am soooo busted,” Wilkinson wrote on Instagram.
“Seems I’ve been seen hosting a breakfast TV show in the same blouse ‘with a strategic cutout above the bust’ just four months apart. Like, personally, I’d sack me!!”
To take things one step further, she turned up to work on Wednesday morning wearing the same shirt and doing her job as usual, as though somehow the things she says at work are important than what she wears.
Just hours later, David Campbell wore the shirt on Today Extra, before Sonia Kruger had a turn. It’s like Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants except it’s set in Sydney and David Campbell’s involved (would genuinely watch that).

Now, Wilkinson has responded to the media attention in an article for the Huffington Post, where she’s said, “I did something very brave today”.
“It didn’t involve a live cross to Bashar Al Assad in the Syrian war zone. Or an exclusive interview with Donald Trump on Air Force One,” she wrote.
“No, from this day forward perhaps my greatest legacy to the annals of female news broadcasting history will likely be that I dared to wear the same outfit two days in a row on national TV.”
Wilkinson, who also serves as Editor-at-Large for the Huffington Post, points at the absurdity of her achievement, and the reporting that called it out.
