The Project's Carrie Bickmore announces major TV return

The Project host Carrie Bickmore has announced she and her family are returning to Australia after moving to the UK earlier this year.

Carrie set off on an adventure to Europe in April with her husband Chris and three kids, Oliver, 14, Evie, 7, and Adelaide, 3, after announcing in March she would be taking a break from The Project desk.

She has been chronicling her travels on her Instagram account, with snaps of the family visiting various landmarks like Stonehenge and the Eiffel Tower.

After one last adventure to Greece, the host shared that they would now be returning to home soil.

"And so comes to an end the most incredible few months…." she posted on Instagram on Sunday.

"Was it perfect NO. Was it always easy NO. Was it worth it YES YES YES.

"Nothing worthwhile comes easily. I am just so glad we had a crack. Memories made that we’ll talk about forever."


Sunrise's Edwina Bartholomew commented she had loved following the family's adventure while TV presenter Angela Bishop praised them for living life to the fullest.

The Herald Sun reports the host is not wasting any time settling back into her old life, with the presenter expected in back in The Project studio today.

Carrie details family's biggest struggle after move

Carrie has been praised for a number of candid posts during her adventure, which showed the imperfect reality of upending life to move overseas with three children.

Earlier this year Carrie detailed on Instagram her family's biggest struggle after moving to London.

Posting a photo of her daughter Adelaide on Instagram, Carrie revealed her little one was having a tough time with the adjustment.

"Happy to report London play centres are just like Aussie play centres," she captioned the photo.

"Wanted to do something easy and fun for Addie today because to be honest she is the one in the family that is struggling the most being on our adventure.

"Away from her home (which due to lockdown she has spent a lot of her short life in) new smells, new people, different food, tubes, buses, flights, late nights, new beds, it's a lot for her and the result is lots of grizzling, tantrums, disrupted sleep and very clingy.

"I know the special time we are getting together will be worth it for her but thought I'd share some of our realities of travelling with little ones.

"I am cherishing the endless hours together that I never get at home and happy to spend my day in a ball pit."
