Carrie returns just in time for The Project’s 10th anniversary celebrations with a special 90 minute episode planned for Friday, 19 July.
The Project Executive Producer Craig Campbell said: “A decade is a lovely milestone to reach doing a show you care so much about. July 19’s telecast will give us a wonderful opportunity to get everyone together and talk about those embarrassing moments we shared with the nation.”
Carrie said: “I can’t believe it’s been 10 years! It only feels like yesterday I was sitting on the desk in a cold sweat waiting for the first show to begin. I have loved watching the show (and my hair) change and evolve over the decade. It’s been like a second home to me and I feel so fortunate to work next to genuine friends.”
It’s been a busy 12 months for Carrie with the birth of her third child Adelaide. She has received an OAM for her service to brain cancer awareness while her charity, Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer has now raised an incredible $11.5 million since its launch in 2015.
