As for whether she would watch the ill-fated pilot episode again (then titled The 7 pm Project) Carrie told the outlet she'd rather put it out of her mind.
“Oh, mate. I’m not game enough to watch it back,” she said with a laugh.
“The first show was always going to be tricky — it was a completely new format, a completely new idea. I wasn’t even convinced that our hosts knew what it was when we went to air.
Despite the minor hiccup, Carrie— who's celebrating 10 years on air with her Project co-hosts— said she never gave up hope the show would thrive.
"I get to work with people who are bloody good at their job. I've worked with Pete (Helliar) since I was 25, and he's brilliant.
"He's one of the funniest people in this country, and I get to watch him do his thing every night. Then you've got Waleed (Aly) who's the master broadcaster - he's so calm and unflappable, which is such a helpful energy to sit next to in a live show when news is breaking."
