Carrie Bickmore has cleared her desk and bid farewell to her fans as she finished up at The Project.
The 41-year-old took to Instagram sharing a video of herself and the items that have piled up on her desk over the past 13 years as co-host of the Network 10 program.
“Just cleaning out my Project desk,” an emotional Carrie begins.
“I’m not crying, you are. It’s so weird having my life all packed,.”
She then proceeds to show off a photo of her son Ollie, who was just three when Carrie started on The Project in 2009.
The mother-of-three also shared a photo of pregnancy medication that she used to take when pregnant with her two other children, Evie and Adelaide.
The Gold Logie winner shocked fans when she announced that she will be leaving the show.
Her last episode will be on November 30, an incredible achievement for her after appearing on the first episode aired in 2009, alongside Charlie Pickering.
Holding back tears, Carrie said it was the “hardest decision of my professional life but it’s time for a new challenge and my next chapter”.
“I have some news that I wanted to share… s*** I’m already crying,” she began.
“I have made the tough decision to finish up hosting the show at the end of the year.
“It’s been the hardest decision of my professional life, to make this call, but it’s time for a new challenge and for my next chapter.
“It’s no secret that this show has become a second home to me, and I couldn’t be more thankful to everyone that has been involved on and off screen.
“It has been a long journey. I started the show when Ollie, my son, was one, and he’s now 15, which is crazy. And I want to spend more time at home.
“I want to have more family dinners. I’ll watch the show at home with a glass of wine in hand. I just wanted to say an enormous thank you.
“It has been an incredible privilege.”
