Okay, this would be interesting 

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

First it was the obvious choice - Sylvia Jeffreys, then for a little bit it was former-Bachelorette star, Georgia Love and today it is My Kitchen Rules star Ash Pollard.

Pollard has revealed to 'Be' she would "absolutely" jump at the chance to replace Lisa Wilkinson on TODAY.

The nation is still recovering from not seeing Wilkinson every morning next to Karl Stefanovic after having her there for a decade.

While chatting at this year's Melbourne Cup, Ash, 31, teased she could potentially take the seat next to Karl Stefanovic.

"I can neither confirm or deny what will happen in the future."

'Be' asked if it would be something she would consider:

"Of course, absolutely."

Ash Pollard shot to fame after appearing on My Kitchen Rules in 2015. She was the most opinionated for that season and was a fan favourite because of it.

She then went on to star in 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here' last year and formed a friendship with journalist, Steve Price.

Lisa, 57, has jumped ship to rival network Channel Ten for a role on The Project commencing at the beginning of 2018.

Channel Nine breakfast show has yet to comment on the replacement.
