Later, she took to Instagram to upload some snaps from The Project, writing: “Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday and there hasn’t been many holidays this year!”

Others said Carrie had inspired them to transform their own locks and “cut away 2020”.

Carrie has been documenting the weeks in Melbourne’s lockdown with her three children on her Instagram page.

Three days ago, she uploaded a snap of a wet stain on the couch alongside the caption: “All we can do is laugh now #Addie #Toilettraining #couchtales

At the end of September, she also had a relatable mum moment when her adorable daughter Adelaide, took to the couch with a sharpie pen.

While I did an interview this morning in one room...Miss Adelaide got creative in the other room. Who left the sharpie lying around???!!!!!!!
