Carrie Bickmore rumoured to host iconic Aussie show after leaving The Project

The presenter has been focusing on her radio career since leaving The Project last year.

Carrie Bickmore is reportedly set to make her return to TV to host an iconic Aussie show after exiting The Project last year.

Network Ten recently confirmed reports by TV Blackbox that they are bringing back Deal or No Deal, which was previously hosted by Andrew O'Keefe, to the 6pm timeslot.

Now, the publication has suggested a former host of The Project is up for the presenting job, with Carrie or Peter Hilliar being the 'most obvious' choices.


They add that Carrie's exit from The Project was seen as a huge blow to Ten, with the network keen to work with her again. And a game show recorded a few days a month would leave Carrie with plenty of time for her radio show and other commitments.

It's believed the network will reveal who is set to host the show on October 24, at their upfronts.

Carrie's 'career highlight'

In the time since she left The Project, Carrie's career has continued thriving, with the presenter revealing her 'career and parenting highlight' when she appeared on the highly popular ABC children's TV show Bluey in May.


Carrie appeared on the show as the Terrier triplets' mum very briefly. The pups are bored in the pharmacy, complaining to their mum as she tests lipsticks on her arm in the background, saying to herself, "That's a bit much. Ooh, scarlet bombshell!"

"Career and parenting highlight 🎉," Carrie wrote on Instagram at the time. "My girls watching my 2 seconds of fame on the latest episode of Bluey! What a genuine thrill to be a part of such an incredible Aussie show. 💙 I think ‘Terrier’s mum’ needs to be a regular character 😉."
