Nine's Danika Mason's brave display after calling off engagement

The presenter cancelled her wedding just weeks before she was set to tie the knot.

Channel Nine presenter Danika Mason has been putting on a brave face at work in the last week after calling off her engagement to fiancé Todd Liubinskas just weeks before they were set to tie the knot.

Danika was reportedly left "beyond devastated" following the split but has continued working since it was announced earlier this week. However, the presenter has since ditched her diamond engagement ring for her work commitments.

The presenter appeared to be in good spirits as she appeared on her show Immortal Behaviour with Andrew Johns, where the pair discussed the latest NRL news ahead of this weekend's Grand Final.

At one point, the pair joked about Andrew presenting a weather forecast naked, with Danika left in a fit of giggles.


It comes after Todd reportedly organised a third party to contact Danika and told her to "immediately" return the diamond engagement ring he gave her when he popped the question in July 2021, according to Daily Mail.

Danika and the personal trainer were set to tie the knot on October 27 at Greystone Estate in the Hunter Valley, NSW.

"(The third party) insisted she doesn't discuss the split publicly to the media and asked her to return the ring," an insider close to Danika revealed to the publication, adding Todd wants it back as it's considered a 'family heirloom'. It is reportedly a custom piece designed by Sydney jeweller Sam Rahme.

Since the split, which appears to have been quite sudden, Danika has been staying in the pair's South Maroubra home with their chocolate Labrador Charlie, while Todd has moved in with his parents in Sydney's Inner West.

The publication also reports Danika is set to spend what was meant to be her wedding weekend with Fox Footy presenter Yvonne Sampson in Bali.

It's unknown at this stage why the pair split, but Todd's ex-girlfriend, who was with the personal trainer for seven years, has recently come out in support of Danika.

"I can only hope that Danika hasn't been blindsided like I was or going through something similar," she told the Daily Mail. "My heart goes out to her if she was."

Friends told The Daily Telegraph this week that Danika is "beyond devastated" and "completely heartbroken" that the three-year relationship came to an end.

The pair was last seen together at an event for the new BYD electric car two weeks ago and recently celebrated Todd's 40th birthday earlier this month.
