‘S**t I’m on live TV!’ Carrie , 38, admitted to News Corp on Saturday that she still gets nervous co-hosting The Project, after 10 years on the show

During an interview with News Corp on Saturday ahead of the show’s 10-year anniversary, Carrie Bickmore admitted she still gets nervous presenting.

‘Sometimes we will be halfway through a show and I’ll suddenly think, ‘S**t I am on live TV,’ and then the butterflies will start,’ the 38-year-old said.   

‘I think the day I stop getting nervous is the day I’ve stopped caring,’ she added.  

Carrie went on to reveal that it took her time to understand the show’s format of going from lighthearted subjects to hard-hitting news.

‘It took me a while to get used to the gear changes between talking about a death toll overseas and introducing an interview with Miley Cyrus,’ she said.

The blonde beauty has been with the program since it first premiered on Channel 10 in 2009.    

A day before her comeback, Carrie revealed she was feeling anxious about returning to the show. 

‘I’ll be really honest, I have huge mixed emotions about it,’ she told The Sydney Morning Herald.

Carrie’s last episode was on Thursday November 15, 2018, prior to the birth of her daughter Adelaide, now seven months. 

Adelaide is Carrie’s third child and second with partner Chris Walker. They also share four-year-old daughter Evie, and son Oliver, 11, from Carrie’s late husband Greg Lange. 

‘Spending time with the kids after school was such a unique thing for me the last eight months, because I don’t get that,’ she told the Herald.

‘Just being able to have dinner with my family has been incredible. I haven’t had that for 10 years. I think it’s going to be a massive adjustment for me heading back to work.’
