The embattled TV host Wilkinson, 62, made the shocking admission at the end of Sunday night’s episode, leaving viewers stunned.

“I’ve decided it’s time to re-prioritize some things in my life,” the TV veteran began alongside co-hosts Hamish Macdonald and Laura Byrne of The Bachelor.

“And after nearly 15 years of the early warning of breakfast TV, and now another five years here at The Project’s desk, I’m looking at how I want the next few years to play out both professionally and personally.

“So, starting tonight, I’m going to stop hosting the show.”

Lisa went on to explain that she would not be leaving Channel Ten and was “looking for some exciting job ideas for the future.”

But I have to be honest with you. The last six months have not been easy, and the relentless targeted toxicity in the media has taken its toll.

“Not just me, but the people I love,” Wilkinson admitted.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not above criticism, far from it. I’m human, and I don’t always get it right, none of us do, but by God I’ve tried.

Lisa’s departure comes after a controversial year for the TV presenter, during which she was taken off the air following her disastrous Logies speech that resulted in a rape trial being delayed.

Wilkinson won the Gold Logie for her interview with Brittany Higgins, in which the former Liberal staffer alleged she was raped by her colleague Bruce Lehrmann in a minister’s office during 2019.

The original trial date was scheduled for June 27, but after Wilkinson’s acceptance speech, a judge delayed the high-profile case, ruling it would be “unfair” to continue amid public comment surrounding the case.

While The Project star faced a wave of public scrutiny, Channel Ten stood by Wilkinson, calling the criticism “inaccurate and unfair”.
