Ally Langdon was hilariously ribbed by her Today show colleagues on Friday after she was snubbed by Tracy Grimshaw this week.

Brooke Boney, Karl Stefanovic and Alex Cullen made fun of the moment that Tracy ignored Ally’s attempt at a hug by mimicking the incident in an exaggeration fashion. 

‘Everyone give Ally a hug!’ Karl said, before he, Brooke, and Alex all purposely turned their backs to the blonde.

Today Extra’s David Campbell and Sylvia Jeffreys also enjoyed a laugh as they watched it all go down from their desk. 

‘Big hugs for Ally!’ said Sylvia as she hugged the air in front of her.

An awkward interaction between Grimshaw and her rumoured A Current Affair replacement Ally went viral this week.

Grimshaw wrapped up her 17-year run as host on the show on Thursday night and and was sent off with applause, hugs and well wishes from her Channel Nine colleagues as she walked out of the ACA studio for the very last time.

After hugging several staff members, including Karl Stefanovic and Peter Overton, Grimshaw walked by Langdon who had her arms outstretched for an embrace.

But Grimshaw brutally brushed her, appearing to shake her head before hugging Stefanovic.

Speaking on the Today show on Friday morning, Langdon addressed the awkward moment, admitting she ‘didn’t get much sleep’ after the incident.

‘That’s where my heart breaks,’ Langdon said while watching the clip.

‘I’m devastated. I mean, I turned to you at the time going “Tracy Grimshaw just brushed me.” When you get brushed by your hero, I gotta say it hurts.’

Stefanovic said Grimshaw had written a statement and apologised to Langdon for snubbing her in the guard of honour.

‘Ally, I just watched the guard of honor from last night and I saw you went in to give me a hug,’ Grimshaw said in her statement.

‘And I hugged bloody Karl! I’m sorry I missed you. I was so overwhelmed and obviously didn’t see your petite head once his big boofhead loomed into vision. Big sorry.’ 

‘Ahh relief!’ Stefanovic sighed, describing the moment one of the ‘greatest snubs on Australian television’.

Langdon is highly-tipped to replace Grimshaw as host of the show and an announcement is expected to be made by Nine next week.

Kyle Sandilands appeared to confirm that Langdon is replacing Grimshaw during an interview with the long-running host on Wednesday.

Speaking to Grimshaw on his KIIS FM radio show, the shock jock said he knew it was the Today show host.

Kyle claimed he’d had a private conversation with Langdon’s Today show co-host Karl Stefanovic, who has been asking him for advice on a potential replacement for her.

‘I feel like I know, because I’ve been speaking to [Karl] Stefanovic,’ he told Grimshaw after grilling her on the topic of her replacement.

‘Well, let me just tell everyone it is Ally. I don’t mean to bust Channel Nine’s bubble.’

Sandilands said Stefanovic didn’t tell him their chat was ‘confidential’.

‘Maybe that was a personal chat? I don’t know… But he didn’t ask me not to say anything,’ he continued.

Grimshaw remained coy when pressed on the rumours as to who will be her replacement, saying every candidate for the job is ‘an exemplary person’.

‘I certainly hope Channel Nine would replace me with a dud,’ she joked.

‘But unfortunately they do replace me with someone excellent.’

‘I can’t possibly give you a hint, but you’ll know very soon,’ she added. ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if you know next week.’

During her final show, a teary Grimshaw thanked Australians for supporting A Current Affair as a slew of famous faces farewelled the long-time host after 17 years on the show.
