Former co-hosts Lisa Wilkinson and Sylvia Jeffreys reunite at Logies

Before quitting her role as Today show host in 2017, Lisa Wilkinson appeared to be close with her fellow work colleague Sylvia Jeffreys.

And the pair looked genuinely pleased to see each other when they reunited on the red carpet at the 2019 Logie Awards on Sunday night.

The two women put on a tactile display as they chatted outside The Star on the Gold Coast, with Sylvia even placing her hand affectionately on Lisa’s arm.  

Despite at first having a look of surprise to see Sylvia, Lisa greeted the blonde beauty like an old friend.

The pair looked animated as they shared a laugh while surrounded by other media stars on the red carpet. 

The Sunday Project star Lisa stood out in a maroon gown, which was embellished with intricate purple beading and feathers.  

Meanwhile, Sylvia looked glamorous in an animal print maxi grown by Rebecca Vallance, which featured an elegant cut out at the back of it.

Lisa left Channel Nine’s Today show back in October 2017, after a reported pay dispute with the network. 

A statement from the Nine Network said it was ‘unable to meet her expectations’ after she reportedly demanded equal pay with co-host Karl Stefanovic. 

Lisa then made her own follow-up announcement on Twitter: ‘I have some sad news. I’m sad to say that today was my last day on the Today show.’

It was widely reported that Lisa secured a multi-million dollar pay packet before the move to Channel Ten and to the desk at The Project.  

Meanwhile, Sylvia left the Today Show in less than stellar circumstances when it was revamped in favour of a new line-up this year.     

Sylvia ended her tenure alongside husband and former Weekend Today star Peter Stefanovic, and brother-in-law Karl Stefanovic.   

Speaking to Stellar magazine earlier this month, Sylvia called herself ‘collateral damage’ in the major network reshuffle.

‘I didn’t see change on that scale coming… It was a lot to digest all at once,’ she candidly told the publication.

‘I don’t know on what basis those decisions were made, but whatever way you look at it, I was collateral,’ Sylvia added.

Admitting there is ‘speculation’ that Sylvia and Peter were damaged by the high-profile wedding, the star shrugged it off.  

‘[Karl and Jasmine] are beautiful people who love each other very much and that’s all I really care about.’
