Australian TV presenter Carrie Bickmore has taken doodling to a new level.

The co-host of Network Ten's The Project caused a stir on Twitter after holding up a piece of paper with a drawing of a phallic symbol on it at the end of Thursday night's show.

Viewers responded immediately, taking to the social networking site to express their shock and amusement.

"Am I the only one that noticed the drawing on Carrie's sheet tonight?" hillsy81 tweeted.

"What have u been doodling?" Kristen Haythorne wrote.

Gary Lovell said: "@BickmoreCarrie has other things on her mind at the end of the show #bickmorewilly."

"My little sister just asked what Carrie drew on the back of her paper ...," Bridie Pamment tweeted.

Some suggested Bickmore might have been the victim of a prank.

"Looks like somebody pranked you Carrie!" Chris tweeted.

"Maaaan ... The interns have all the fun," Tom Read wrote.

A red-faced Bickmore found the funny side to the incident and blamed former host Charlie Pickering for the drawing.

"OMG! So embarrassed! Was laughing with audience in the break about what @charliepick signed at the end of every show! #CharliesRevenge #oops," Bickmore tweeted on Thursday night.
