After having recently celebrated its 10-year milestone, The Project has been swept with a wave of controversy as of late thanks to rumours of another feud between co-hosts.

But Lisa Wilkinson has brushed off the drama, taking a break from the Channel Ten news and current affairs show and enjoying a European holiday.

Taking to Instagram, the 59-year-old TV star has shared an array of stunning snaps from her getaway in Italy, and whether it be the beautiful sunsets or picturesque waterside locations, Lisa has proved she’s having a ball abroad.

It comes after a report earlier this week that claimed tensions were high behind the scenes of The Project after Peter Helliar’s comment to Lisa was made in the company of co-hosts Waleed Aly and Carrie Bickmore during the show’s 10th anniversary TV special.

According to The Australian, Lisa “shuffled off the set” of the program a little while after Peter told her on air, “We love having you on our show”.

The publication claims “she was not sighted again, either during the 90-minute-plus extravaganza or the after-party”.

However, neither Lisa or the other stars of the show have confirmed this was the case.

Lisa famously jumped ship from Channel Nine to Channel Ten after quitting the Today show in late 2017 after a reported pay dispute.

She’s gone on to host Sunday Project and conduct a series of high-profile interviews on the show, and filled in on the weeknight desk as well.
