When Ed­wina met Costello Sr

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

WELL, that was awk­ward!

There are two peo­ple Sun­rise pre­sen­ter Ed­wina Bartholome­w wouldn’t want to run into these days — and she was seated next to one of them on a flight from Syd­ney to Mel­bourne for Sun­rise’s cov­er­age of the AFL grand fi­nal.

Two weeks after the heav­ily preg­nant pre­sen­ter (right) took to Twit­ter to post an “er­rant tweet” about con­tro­ver­sial Nine news jour­nal­ist Seb Costello, Sun­day Con­fi­den­tial can re­veal she sat next to his fa­ther, for­mer fed­eral trea­surer fa­ther Peter, on the flight.

Bartholome­w is un­der­stood to have slept for the ma­jor­ity of the flight be­fore suck­ing it up and in­tro­duc­ing her­self to the for­mer politi­cian, who just hap­pens to be chair­man of Chan­nel 9.

We hear it was a cor­dial ex­change. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall.

“Of all the flights go­ing from Syd­ney to Mel­bourne on grand fi­nal week­end, can you be­lieve it?” one in­dus­try source said.
