NEW co-hosts Lisa Wilkinson and Carrie Bickmore were all smiles as they flew into Melbourne together on Thursday - snuffing out any reports of a rumoured rift.

The pair laughed as they walked out of the terminal after spending the night partying in Sydney at the AACTA Awards.

Wilkinson cut a stylish figure in a red dress and caped a matching jacket over her shoulders as she wheeled her bag behind her.

Bickmore - who was accompanied by her partner Chris Walker - kept things low-key, opting for a pair of black leggings, runners and a baseball cap.

When Wilkinson made the tremendous leap from Channel Nine to Network Ten's The Project, it was reported Bickmore was "p*ssed off" at her new co-host's rumoured $2 million salary.

If true, the deal would be four times more than Bickmore's $200,000 salary.

Just a few weeks before Wilkinson signed on at Ten, Bickmore locked in her new deal with the broadcaster.

During Wilkinson's first appearance on the show, Bickmore welcomed her new co-host and eased any rumoured tension.

"Nine's loss is our gain here at Network Ten," Bickmore said. "An incredible woman - smart, funny, down to earth. We couldn't be more excited."
