Funeral of the Queen: Presenter Allison Langdon returns to Sydney today after falling asleep in front of the camera
Shattered Today presenter Allison Langdon returns to Sydney after falling asleep on camera during marathon coverage of Queen’s death in London
Presenter Allison Langdon looked exhausted on Thursday as she flew from London to Sydney Airport after a 24-hour flight.
Her return home followed a tiring two weeks of traveling the world, working grueling 14-hour days covering the Queen’s death for Channel Nine.
She worked so hard that at one point she fell asleep in front of the camera, although luckily the moment happened during a break from live coverage.

The mother of two, 43, indeed seemed very tired as she leaned against her trolley, which was stacked with her suitcases.
Allison dressed casually for the flight in slacks and a black sweater with rolled-up sleeves as she hauled her luggage through the busy airport.
She wrapped a leopard print scarf around her neck, had a matching scrunchie on her wrist and completed her look with a pair of chunky boots.
Her return home followed an exhausting two weeks in which she traveled the world and worked grueling 14-hour days covering the Queen’s death for Channel Nine.
Allison tucked her blonde locks behind her ears and let her natural beauty shine by going completely makeup-free.
Her tired appearance contrasted sharply with her Today co-anchor Karl Stefanovic, who had returned to Sydney the day before with a huge smile on his face, pushing a single suitcase while carrying a Louis Vuitton bag.
Allison anchored the Today show solo on Wednesday while her 48-year-old co-host was in transit after the Queen’s funeral.
She began her live broadcast from Buckingham Palace at 8.30pm Tuesday (GMT) without Karl by her side, acknowledging his absence about an hour later.

Referring to the unusually quiet scenes at the palace in London, Allison explained that Karl was on a flight home to Australia.
Karl had arrived in London on September 13 to report on the Queen’s death. Allison was on site the day before and presented Today alongside Charles Croucher.
Nine appears to have staggered the presenters’ flights back to Australia, so major news programs, such as the Today show, were not without both main hosts.

It comes after Allison fell asleep on set during a break from coverage of the Queen’s funeral on Monday, after broadcasting from Buckingham Palace for 14 hours.
Exhausted, she rolled up a jacket to use as a pillow while napping on Today’s senior producer Will Hutchinson’s lap, who snapped a photo for Instagram.
Allison reposted the photo to her own Instagram Stories on Tuesday, along with the caption, “Hour 14. Everything is fine.”
