The Project host Carrie Bickmore's racy move announced on-air

The Project host Carrie Bickmore was left flustered after fellow panellist Kate Langbroek shared her racy ‘secret’.

The panellists were discussing a segment about Australia’s growing ballroom scene when Kate made the shock comment.

Waleed Aly said that he believed Kate would love to be part of the ballroom scene, and she agreed wholeheartedly.

“That’d be fun. When you find your people,” she said, before asking Carrie: “What about your sl*t drop?”

Carrie quickly stopped Kate from elaborating and the crowd burst into laughter.


“They’d love you. Oh no, she does a great one!” Kate told the panel.

As Carrie kept trying to throw to the break, Kate realised she may have overstepped.

“Was that a secret?” Kate asked sheepishly.

Waleed looked shocked by the chatter and asked: “Are we still on the air?”

Carrie shut down any calls for her to demonstrate the racy dance move on-air, saying that she wasn’t going to demonstrate it.

The ‘sl*t drop’ is a dance move that gained popularity when Christina Aguilera used the move in her 2002 music video for Dirrty.

According to the Urban Dictionary, which defines popular slang words, the move involves “squatting until the buttocks almost reach the floor and standing back up with a body roll”.

Carrie’s humiliating gaffe

Carrie and Kate always cause mayhem when they’re together, and last week Carrie ‘lost the plot’ on the show.

Sharing a selection of her mistakes on Instagram, she apologised to fans in her caption.

“Lost the plot on tonight’s show…and this is only a small sample of the mayhem. I blame Kate Langbroek. Sorry everyone!” she quipped.

The hosts were discussing an Australian man who recently found 58 million dollars deposited into his bank account by accident.

While he returned it all to the bank, the hosts argued that he should ‘get a cut’, like a ‘finders fee’ for being honest.

“If you find someone’s lost dog, they give you a reward,” Kate pointed out.

“Do they? Oh, what do you get? I’ve never found a lost dog,” Carrie replied, while struggling to keep her composure.

“Haven’t you ever seen ‘Lost Dog - Reward’ — on like a pole on the street?” Kate asked exasperatedly.

Carrie completely lost it and started laughing hysterically, while Peter Helliar took a swipe at the host.

“Our producers are telling us pre-show drinks are cancelled! No more, no more,” he quipped.
