She’s gearing up to return to the Today show following Lisa Wilkinson’s shock departure last month. 

And ahead of her new role, Georgie Gardener has addressed swirling rumours of tension with co-host Karl Stefanovic.

Speaking to Take5 this week, the 46-year-old joked about her ‘unpredictable’ relationship with the controversial presenter, saying: ‘Well, that’s the unknown. Karl is predictably unpredictable.’

‘It’s going to be one helluva ride! Hold on to your hats and expect the unexpected!’ Georgie added. 

She went on to clarify: ‘All jokes aside, though, there’s so much I can learn from Karl.’

‘He is a consummate presenter of the big breaking news stories, he is so skilled, he has this wonderful ability to get to the essence of the story and disseminate the information live and unscripted like no other.’

Georgie’s comments come after The Sydney Morning Herald published statements from an insider claiming that she and Karl were forced to ‘clear the air’ over lunch prior to her return.  

‘They were keen to make it work for Georgie because she really is the best person for that role’, the insider reportedly said. 

‘She’s f***ing tough, let me tell you, she doesn’t take s**t from anyone. More importantly, she’s been a journo for years.’

‘She has a strong news background and she’s more than capable of doing political interviews as well as the banter,’ the source continued. 

It is reported that the mother-of-two accepted the role for less than half of co-host Karl’s reported $2 million salary. 

Georgie – who was previously part of the Today line-up presenting news for seven years until 2014 – will join Karl, news presenter Sylvia, sports presenter Tim Gilbert, entertainment editor Richard Wilkins, weather presenter Natalia Cooper and finance editor Ross Greenwood next year.
