Speaking to media as he left his Sydney North Shore home, FitzSimon's said Wilkinson was enjoying a sleep in after an 'extraordinary' day.
“She’s having a lovely sleep in after an extraordinary day, thank you. The best sleep in 10 years,” the author said.
Wilkinson last night announced that she would be leaving the TODAY show effective immediately after ten years.
Karl Stefanovic thanked his former co-host this morning, saying:
“For 10 years, Lisa has dragged herself out of bed at 3:30 in the morning, fed the dogs and cats, put a load of washing on and came into work to inform you of what was happening in the world.
“So for now this, thank you. Thank you for the laughs, the sage advice, the calmness, oh, the calmness. And thank you for all of your support. Thank you for being a great colleague. Thanks for being a great interviewer. Thanks for being a great dancer and a truly, truly terrible singer.
"Thanks for being a great mum. I know you value that more than anything else and thank you for being a great friend."
Wilkinson will join Channel Ten's The Project from January 2018 .
