‘There are a few rats back there… skeletons’: Georgie Gardner takes a cheeky dig at Karl Stefanovic as Today weatherman climbs the studio wall to see what’s on the other side

Georgie Gardner and Karl Stefanovic were rumoured to be at odds with each other during their stint hosting the Today Show. 

And while Karl has since been axed from the panel, Georgie couldn’t help but take a cheeky dig at her former colleague on Tuesday morning. 

During a segment which saw weatherman Stevie Jacobs impersonate the Ninja Warrior contestants by scaling the wall of the Today studio’s set, Georgie joked about what he might find on the other side. 

‘There are quite a few rats down there… skeletons!’ Georgie said knowingly before breaking into a hearty chuckle. 

Having managed to find his way over the top of the wall, Stevie quipped back: ‘I think I just found three old Today Show hosts!’  

‘Is that where they are? Goodness me,’ Georgie cheekily responded.

Later in the segment, Stevie was tied to a chair and watched  by a security guard to make sure he didn’t climb anything else. 

The hilarious scene ended with Stevie dramatically breaking free and attempt to abseil up the wall with a rope. 

He was eventually restrained by the guard, who threw the pint-sized weatherman over his shoulder and carried him off set.   

Fancy that! Having managed to find his way over the top of the wall, Stevie quipped back: 'I think I just found three old Today Show hosts!'

It was widely believed that Georgie and Karl had fallen out months earlier due to his involvement in the now-infamous Ubergate scandal. 

According to the magazine, Karl had criticised his female co-anchor for ‘sitting on the fence’ and not having enough opinions during a loud conversation with his brother Peter.

Discussing their rumoured feud in January, Georgie insisted she had ‘love and respect’ for her former colleague.
