Insider reports say that although there were talks some months back, Bingle will not be filling in for radio presenter Jackie O, who goes on maternity leave shortly. She was called in at the last minute to replace O on Friday morning when O called in sick on Thursday night, with reports she had spent the night at the Mater Hospital.

"Lara is definitely not doing the show when Jackie goes," a well-informed radio insider says.

While Kyle Sandilands's manager Andrew Hawkins would not divulge any further information - "we can't say who it is" - word has it that Sophie Monk is definitely a frontrunner for keeping the 2DayFM seat warm.

Either way, Bingle has plenty to occupy her over summer. She is working on a make-up book with friend Max May and keeping fit with interior-designer buddy Jason Sullivan, as well as being involved in several overseas projects.
