It seems that Natalie Imbruglia has long held a special place in Alex Cullen’s heart.

And on Friday, the Today show newscaster was flushed during a very awkward interview with the singer.

Alex, 40, couldn’t hide his embarrassment after presenters Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon introduced him to Natalie on live TV.

“This may be one of your biggest fans, our very own newscaster Alex Cullen. Alex, this is your chance. What would you like to say to Natalie?’ asked Ally.

An embarrassed Alex said: ‘It’s just wonderful to see you Natalie and I’m very happy that your son and my son are both called Max… It’s an absolute pleasure to talk to you.’

“He’s getting nervous,” Karl added, bursting out laughing.

“I’m very nervous, this was forced on me at the last minute, but great to see you, you look great,” Alex admitted.

“This is so embarrassing,” Karl said, as Ally agreed: “This is so inconvenient I don’t want it to end.’

Earlier in the show, Karl and Ally had mocked the fact that Alex had a teenage crush on Natalie before interviewing her.

“It’s so close to that conversation with Nat. I’m really excited to talk to her,” Ally said.

“But not as excited as Alex. Maybe he had a poster on the wall,” Karl added hysterically.

“Maybe we’ll talk to Natalie about that. Are you getting nervous?’ Ally asked him, to which he replied, “I am.”
