Radio host Brendan Fevola has tricked comedian Tommy Little into admitting that he is joining the cast of the upcoming season of Celebrity MasterChef.
The Fox 101.9 breakfast host, 40, elicited the funny man’s surprising confession, 36, during his Fifi, Fev and Nick show on Thursday morning.
Realizing he’d been cheated on, the interview ended with Tommy host pretending to have technical issues with his phone before hanging up abruptly.

The ruse began when the former AFL star told The Project host that he would be joining the cast of Celebrity MasterChef.
“I announced today,” Brendan lied. “We announced that at seven this morning.”
‘The only reason I did it is because I saw your name there [as a contestant]. So we’ll compete, brother. ‘

A cautious Tommy replied, “I’ve been told I’m not allowed to talk about it yet. Did you really announce it this morning? ‘
“Yes, at seven,” Brendan said.
Apparently convinced, the stand-up strip took the bait, boasting: ‘Obviously I’m going to win when I’m up against you. That’s fine!’

Brendan’s co-host Fifi Box finally came up and said, “Could I please jump in here? Please please please. ‘
“Tommy, he’s kidding, he’s not on it! He made no announcement. Fev is not on Celebrity MasterChef, ‘the 44-year-old added.
A shocked Tommy exclaimed, “Oh my god. Are we alive? ‘

‘We’re live! And he set you up, and you fell in it! Fifi replied.
It was then that Tommy tried to break away from the conversation by saying to the hosts, ‘Guys … there’s static electricity in the elevator. Oh no, I have to go. ‘
He hung up while Fifi, Fev and co-anchor Nick Cody all laughed.
“Fev, what did you just do?” Fifi scolded. “He probably broke a contract because of you.”
