First there was “Ten News at Five” anchor Belinda Heggens’ low-blow sexual smackdown of co-host Mark Aiston. Now Australia’s version of the “Today Show” completely falls apart during a discussion about a “long, stabby thing” that one of the co-host’s keeps by his bed in case of a home invasion.
But when Karl Stefanovic asked co-host Lisa Wilkinson if she kept something similarly ‘long and stabby’ in her bedroom, it all became a bit carry-on. Wilkinson said she had ‘swordy thing’ before newsreader Georgie Gardner added that ‘Tim’s my long stabby thing’ – talking about her husband.
But the inadvertent innuendo was later turned up to 11 when Ben Fordham said he kept golf club for protecton, adding: “I’d want to be standing back and whacking them off from a distance.” At that point it all became a bit too much for a sniggering Stefanovic who was forced to stand up and leave the set to compose himself.
