She’s co-hosted Nine’s brekkie show with larrikin Karl Stefanovic before, but Studio 10‘s Jessica Rowe has rubbished speculation that she’s going to have another crack on TODAY.

Speaking this morning on KIIS FM’s Kyle & Jackie O radio program, Rowe denied she had been approached by Nine to fill the void left by Lisa Wilkinson, who spectacularly jumped ship to Ten’s The Project after failing to negotiate a new contract to stay at TODAY.

“No, are you joking?” Rowe said. “I could think of nothing worse, myself.”

Rowe pointed out that she’d already co-hosted TODAY with Stefanovic way back in 2006, and said “hell would freeze over first” before she’d return to Nine’s brekkie show.

The Studio 10 co-host’s relationship with then-Nine CEO Eddie McGuire was known for being a frosty one, with Rowe claiming “he made my life hell”.

Rowe joins fellow Studio 10 co-host Sarah Harris and Nine’s Georgie Gardiner in dismissing the opportunity to take over from Wilkinson, with Nine’s Deborah Knight and Sylvia Jeffreys firming as favourites.
