Radio host Carrie Bickmore scolds producer for ‘disgusting’ on-air remark as she discusses her greying hair
Carrie Bickmore has called out a producer for his inappropriate remark during a segment about her greying hair.
While the producer’s comment didn’t make it to air, it was evident from Carrie’s response that he’d asked about hair on her body, not her head.
The 42-year-old was discussing ageing when she said she’s been grey on her ‘head hair’ for a long time but recently noticed a grey eyebrow hair.
‘You said you have a skunk streak… your words not mine,’ her co-host Tommy Little said.
Carrie explained she has had grey hairs for many years and her hairdresser told her it could be from significant stress in her life.
The Aussie personality then admitted she had considered growing her grey hair out.

‘Wouldn’t you look like Storm from X-Men or Mrs Sheffield?’ Tommy asked.
‘I’m not sure that they want Mrs Sheffield hosting The Project. I think that was more the issue of the time,’ Carrie said.
‘Like, I felt like that was just premature ageing because of stress, the hair on my head, whereas this [grey eyebrow hair] is actually, “Oh, no, you’re at the age now where you’re getting grey.”‘
She could then be heard scolding a producer who made a comment off air.
‘No Eli, that’s disgusting,’ she said, adding: ‘Also, [I’m] lasered.’

Carrie previously revealed she is ‘fully grey’ during an episode of The Project.
The TV veteran made the admission following a discussion about Canadian TV newsreader Lisa LaFlamme, who was allegedly sacked for ‘going grey.’
‘I am fully grey under here,’ Carrie told co-hosts Waleed Aly and Peter Helliar while pointing at her hair.
Waleed then asked the star why she doesn’t just ‘got for it’, before Carrie admitted she ‘quite likes dyeing’ her trademark blonde tresses.
‘I’m very grey. I went grey very young,’ she added.
