Today host Allison Langdon arrives home from work on crutches as she recovers from her hydrofoiling accident – hours after Sam Armytage took her final bow on Sunrise
She may still be bound to crutches after injuring her kneecap last month.
But Today host Allison Langdon was the last queen of breakfast TV left standing on Thursday, following the departure of Sunrise anchor Sam Armytage that morning.
The Channel Nine star, 41, was spotted arriving at her home in Sydney on a set of crutches alongside her husband, journalist Michael Willesee Jr.

Allison looked determined despite her injury as she gingerly climbed out of the car and hobbled to her front door.
The mother of two cut a stylish figure in an all-black ensemble, consisting of black palazzo trousers and a matching blouse.
She completed her outfit with brown leather flats and black sunglasses.

As Allison headed home for the the day, Sam was tearfully farewelling her Sunrise colleagues for the last time at Seven’s Martin Place studios.
Sam, who joined Sunrise in 2013, had announced her resignation on Monday, telling viewers she was leaving by choice following a ‘bittersweet’ year.
About an hour later after Sam revealed she was leaving, Allison cheekily referenced her on-air resignation during the closing moments of the Today show.

‘Well, for now I’d just like to say I am leaving,’ she told co-anchor Karl Stefanovic.
‘Are you?’ a puzzled Karl asked, then Allison said she was just leaving ‘the studio’.
The panel burst into laughter and entertainment reporter Brooke Boney said: ‘Ally, that is spicy. That is so spicy.’

Monday also marked Allison’s return to the Today panel after injuring herself during a watersports segment in early February.
The journalist had been off the air since undergoing knee surgery after falling from a hydrofoil during a pre-recorded segment on the Gold Coast on February 4.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show last Thursday, Allison revealed for the first time the extent of her injuries – and said she couldn’t wait to get back to work.
After Karl suggested she had simply suffered a ‘bruised kneecap’, she corrected him and said she’d actually broken her leg and dislocated a knee.
