After a debate with fellow Studio Ten panellist Kerri-Anne Kennerley on Monday over the Australia Day protests, Yumi Stynes will not be back on the show today.
The Zero F***s Cookbook author explained in a post to Instagram why she wouldn’t be on the breakfast TV show as scheduled on Tuesday morning.
Yumi insisted it wasn’t because of the fiery debate she and Kerri-Anne had on Monday’s show, but rather because she “really urgently want(s) to lie around and do nothing”.

During a discussion about the protests, which took place on Saturday and pushed for the date of Australia Day to be changed, things became heated between the pair.
Kerri-Anne made her opinion on the protests and the protestors known.

“OK, the 5000 people who went through the streets making their points known, saying how inappropriate the day is,” she said.
“Has any single one of those people been out to the Outback, where children, babies, five-year-olds are being raped? Their mothers are being raped, their sisters are being raped. They get no education. What have you done?”
