Jessica Rowe and her daughter Allegra are lucky to be alive after their car burst into flames in middle of a busy road in Sydney on Thursday afternoon.
But the former Studio 10 host wasn’t letting the traumatic experience get her down on Friday as she stepped out in a colourful dress for a morning of TV interviews.
She appeared to be in a good mood and smiled for the paparazzi as she crossed the street after shooting a live cross for a breakfast show.

Jess, who has been a journalist for more than two decades, looked comfortable in front of the camera as she discussed her terrifying ordeal.
On Thursday afternoon, Jess was picking up her daughter Allegra, 14, from school in Sydney’s eastern suburbs when her black Volvo XC 60 began billowing smoke on New South Head Road in Rose Bay.
A passing school bus driver named Mev flagged them down to alert them of the danger and helped the pair escape from the vehicle and flee to safety just as the car burst into flames.

‘Thank you to the thoughtful, fast thinking and kind school bus driver Mev who got us out of the car, called the fire brigade, cleared the road and then stayed to drive us home,’ she said.
‘Thank you to the police and paramedics who are angels. And the tow truck driver! And the mums and dads who stopped to help. We love you.’
Jessica’s manager, David H. Wilson, told Daily Mail Australia on Friday the cause of the blaze is still a ‘mystery at this stage’.
