The awkward moment Karl Stefanovic takes a rare swipe at Today co-host Ally Langdon by calling her ‘condescending’ on-air

Karl Stefanovic raised eyebrows by calling his Today co-host Ally Langdon ‘condescending’ during an uncomfortable on-air exchange on Tuesday. 

The presenters, who are usually known for their camaraderie, momentarily clashed after Langdon corrected weather presenter Scherri-Lee Biggs live on-air.   

Biggs, a former Miss Universe Australia titleholder, was reporting from a luxury resort on Fraser Island when she suddenly became confused. 

‘Guys, I just want to tell you that it is really lovely because this resort was actually built after I was born… No, before? No, after?’ she stammered. 

‘I don’t know, my brain is coming back from holiday,’ the Perth-born beauty giggled. 

Stefanovic burst into laughter as Langdon said: ‘We can answer that! How old are you again, Scherri-Lee?’

‘I am 32 in two weeks, I’m not young!’ Biggs blushed. 

‘OK, you were born just before it was built,’ Langdon said gently. 

Clearly embarrassed, Biggs declared: ‘So I was born before [the hotel was built], thank you Ally.

Shrugging her shoulders, Ally replied with a chuckle: ‘Here to help, sweetheart’.  

Taking umbrage with Langdon’s response, Stefanovic interjected: ‘Gee that sounded condescending’.  

‘I definitely didn’t mean it to be’, Langdon hit back. 

The segment then ended, leaving the awkward encounter unresolved.
