Grimshaw, 62, wrote on Twitter: “I noticed that some people are seriously suggesting that I have snubbed Ally here.

‘Of course I didn’t and won’t. I was so emotional, confused and completely overwhelmed and just didn’t see her.’

Grimshaw wrapped up 17 years as a presenter on Thursday night and was clapped, hugged, and well-wishes by her Channel Nine colleagues as she walked off the set of ACA last time.

After hugging several staff members, including Karl Stefanovic and Peter Overton, Grimshaw passed Langdon, who was outstretched in preparation for a hug.

But Grimshaw mercilessly hit her, seemingly looking her in the eye and shaking his head before continuing to hug Stefanovic.

Since then, an insider has claimed Grimshaw ‘had long disliked Langdon’ and that the Today presenter had ‘banned her work’ at the network.

“Tracy simply doesn’t like Ally,” a source told The Daily Telegraph.

Footage of her parting shows Grimshaw walking through the ranks of honor and as Langdon approaches her to hug her, she seemingly refuses the hug.

‘It’s as simple as that. Tracy can’t pretend, if she doesn’t like someone, she shows it.

‘Ally has made no secret of her desire to get a job as a presenter at the ACA and it’s not going well for Tracy.’

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

“That’s where my heart breaks,” Langdon said as he watched the clip.

‘I am devastated. I mean, I turned to you and said, “Tracy Grimshaw just brushed my hair.” When you get run over by your hero, I have to say it hurts.’

Stefanovic said Grimshaw wrote a statement and apologized to Langdon for belittling her to protect his honor.

‘Ally, I was just watching the honors team from last night and I saw you walk in to give me a hug,’ Grimshaw said in his statement.

‘And I hugged the damn Karl! I’m sorry I miss you. I was overwhelmed and clearly didn’t see your small head when its large head came into view. So sorry.’

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

Langdon is expected to replace Grimshaw as host, and Nine is expected to make an announcement next week.

Kyle Sandilands appeared to confirm that Langdon will replace Grimshaw in an interview with the series host on Wednesday.

Speaking to Grimshaw on his KIIS FM radio show, the shocking guy said he knew it was the presenter of the Today show.

Sandliands claims he had a private conversation with Langdon’s Today co-host Karl Stefanovic, who asked him for advice on a potential replacement for her.

‘I feel like I know, because I’ve talked to [Karl] Stefanovic,” he told Grimshaw after asking her about the topic of her replacement.

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

Sandilands said Stefanovic had not told him their conversation was ‘secret’.

‘Perhaps it was a personal conversation? I don’t know… But he didn’t ask me not to say anything,” he continued.

Grimshaw remains shy about highlighting rumors of who will replace her, saying every candidate for the job is ‘a role model’.

‘I definitely hope Channel Nine replaces me with a dumbass,’ she joked.

‘But unfortunately, they replaced me with an excellent one.’

“I can’t give you a hint, but you’ll soon know,” she added. ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if you found out next week.’

On her last show, Grimshaw tearfully thanked Australians for supporting A Current Affair as a host of famous faces bid farewell to the longtime presenter after 17 years on the show.

The TV veteran has been honored by celebrities and ordinary Australians who have helped her show for years, with her replacement yet to be announced.

The presenter, who has interviewed the likes of Oprah, Ellen Degeneres, Celine Dion and Sharon Stone during her 40-year career, was handed a bouquet of flowers as she told viewers they would ‘soon’ find out who will take her place.

“I’m terrible with the word GB, you know, words that end in ‘goodbye’ and start with ‘good’ because I’m going to blub and you all know that’s not going to be pretty,” Grimshaw said.

“But, seriously, when I started here, my boss at the time said they didn’t like interviews longer than four minutes because you would get bored.

‘And now look at us. The whole show can do such interviews because you told us you love them. Thank you for watching them.’

Grimshaw paid tribute to the entire Channel Nine team and gave a special thanks to ‘Daria’, who she said has been doing her autopilot since the Today Show.

A host of prominent Australians paid tribute to Grimshaw, while her colleagues praised her journalistic skills and ability to connect with everyday Australians.

Anthony Albanese, Hamish and Andy, Kyle Sandilands, Ita Buttrose, John Howard, Ray Hadley and Leigh Sales are just a few familiar faces.

Mr Albanese asked if Australian television would ever be the same again, while Kyle Sandilands applauded Grimshaw for always making her guests feel at ease.

In his final episode, Grimshaw spoke to flood victims in Eugowra in the midwest NSW town who received a $50,000 donation from Coles live on air.

The show took a trip back in memory, going back to some of Grimshaw’s most notable interviews, including Sue and Lloyd Clarke – parents of domestic violence victim Hannah Clarke – the Irwin family and Olivia Newton John.

Grimshaw’s emotional farewell comes just weeks after the former Today presenter arrived in Melbourne to film her ‘very special homecoming episode’ that aired last week.

In September, the veteran presenter announced that she was quitting A Current Affair, later revealing that she planned to take a year off to balance work and life.
