Wilkinson quit The Project last November and despite remaining on Ten’s payroll until the end of 2024, she has not appeared on the channel for 13 months.

Despite her long hiatus from the network, Wilkinson has remained in the public eye through her role in a highly publicized defamation lawsuit.

Bruce Lehrmann is suing Network 10 and Wilkinson over an interview with Brittany Higgins that aired on The Project and online.

The defamation case took place in court in the last five weeks of the court’s term. Judge Lee reserved his decision in this case.

Friends of Wilkinson say her court appearances have worked to her advantage by giving the TV star ‘a constant stream of publicity’.

“Yes, she’s been off air for a while, but I don’t think anyone has forgotten her,” former Seven and Nine director Peter Meakin told the channel. Weekend Australian.

“I’m sure her loyal followers will remain loyal.”

Paramount-owned Channel Ten unveiled its 2024 lineup at the Upfronts event last week, but Wilkinson was not featured.

Network Ten claims they are in talks to develop ‘other projects’ with Wilkinson.
