All eyes on Deborah! Knight, 46, is spotted on her way to Melbourne with the rest of the new-look Today show

She is set to debut her new role as co-host of Channel Nine’s Today show on Monday and she is already making an impact.

Deborah Knight, 46, was spotted jetting out of Sydney bound for Melbourne on Saturday with the rest of the new-look Today show crew, including Georgie Gardner, Brooke Boney and Tom Steinfort.

The blonde beauty combined chic with summery in her outfit, pairing a floral fuschia and grey coloured top with blue jeans and silver sneakers.

The TV presenter was spotted fielding calls on her mobile phone at one point, with her leg draped casually over her black luggage. 

The media veteran is no doubt looking forward to her new role as co-host of Today with Georgie – it will be the first time Channel Nine has broadcast the breakfast program with two female presenters.

Following Channel Nine’s shock axing of key breakfast talent in the last month, the Today show’s ‘new look’ lineup will debut on screen on Monday, January 14.

And on Saturday, the group appeared in high spirits at Sydney airport ahead of their first week on-air together. 

Today host Georgie, 48, was all smiles as she traveled with her new team to cover Melbourne’s Australian Open for the network.

Georgie will be returning to the desk with a completely new panel, after co-host Karl Stefanovic’s axing from the show in December last year – and the network’s subsequent ‘house cleaning’ with other former talent on the show.

As well as Karl, news reader Sylvia Jeffreys, 32, and sports presenter Tim Gilbert, 51, left the show, while entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins, 64, will remain on the program in a smaller capacity.

It was announced last Saturday that Deborah would be ­replacing Karl, 44, as co-host of the Today show.

Deborah has already insisted there is no rivalry between the two successful women, as they’ve been colleagues and friends for years. 

The pair certainly appeared friendly in the airport as they shared a colourful chat walking through the terminal.
