Embarrassing but funny moment for Lisa Wilkinson this morning on the Today show, when her mobile phone started ringing.
So naturally, Karl Stefanovic answered the call only to discover Wilkinson’s daughter Billi on the other end.
“No darling, your mum’s still on air,” he said.
“Just remind her what mum does for a living?” quipped Wilkinson.
“Mum’s on the Today show. She’s been on it for 5 years?”
Here is the clip via News Limited.
Update on NineMSN: “She leaves her phone on the set all the time, so it was all about teaching her a lesson,” Stefanovic told ninemsn.
“She fell for it hook, line and sinker.”
An embarrassed Wilkinson is now planning her revenge.
“Clearly Karl’s an excellent liar, and Ben is too,” she joked.
“I didn’t pick it, and I normally do.
“Georgie (Gardner) and I are cooking up something up as we speak.”
Wilkinson said that the others also have their phones on the set to allow them to keep up to date with the newswires, but she had turned hers off before going to air.
“My phone wasn’t on — they switched it on,” she said.
“That’s why I was so shocked.”
