Will Lisa Wilkinson leave The Project by the end of the year?

‘We find it hard to believe anyone could be feuding with Waleed or Carrie, but rumours gather momentum,’ Sportsbet’s Rich Hummerston said on Thursday.
‘Apparently all is not well with Lisa and her co-hosts and we’re tipping she’ll go sooner rather than later.’
According to Sportsbet, the odds that Lisa will leave The Project before the start of the 2020 season are sitting at $1.85.

It’s believed tensions have been mounting for some time, and a throwaway comment made by Peter during the recent 10th anniversary show only made things worse.
Apparently Peter’s comment (‘We love having you on our show’) infuriated Lisa, who felt it implied she was still an outsider on the program.
As a result of the remark, she left the 90-minute broadcast after just half an hour and skipped the staff after-party, according to The Australian.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.
