Is this a good idea?

Since Lisa Wilkinson announced her departure from TODAY last month, rumours have been swirling about who would be tapped to replace her.

Early favourites like Deb Knight and Georgie Gardner seemed obvious, but the new frontrunner was a surprise to fans.

There’s growing speculation that The Bachelorette’s Georgia Love will be picked to fill Lisa’s shoes.

Asked about the rumours by Be at Derby Day over the weekend, Georgia’s boyfriend Lee said we should “watch this space”.

The 29-year-old journo cut in, saying, "Lee still thinks I’ve got Lisa Wilkinson’s job in the bag, but we’ll see".

Perhaps the only stumbling block? The former Bachelorette recently signed on to do some reporting on rival network Channel 10.

Well, in the words of Lee, we’ll just “watch this space”
