Fifi's off to have a baby, but not before a tattoo

As announced late last week here, Sophie Monk will be filling in for Fifi on the Today network drive show from Tuesday.

Yesterday afternoon, Fifi farewelled the show saying:

Fifi:As much as I did think I could stay on air and keep working until this baby decides to come into the world, I’ve actually discovered that pregnancy is quite physically taxing and I am struggling a little bit.

So, I have decided that I am going to take maternity leave – from now…

Jules: Can we at least finish the show?

Fifi:I did want to take this opportunity, as I take off on maternity leave - so I’ll be gone for a couple of months – and you’ll be joined by the gorgeous Sophie Monk. I guess it’s my last chance to say a big thank you to everyone who’s been along this journey with me through the pregnancy. I’ve had so many well wishes – on Facebook and Twitter – you’ve all been so kind and so lovely, and you’ve welcomed this baby into the world before it’s even arrived!

So thank you for all the love and support I’ve received!


But before she finished up, Jules and Byron had one last Blackout Challenge for Fifi. See previous challenges here and here.

In this one, Fifi was blindfolded and when it was taken off she discovered she was in a tattoo parlour. See what happened :-

Ho hum. The talent is usually the one who comes up with it well before it goes to air. Nice acting there
